「生まれ変わり」「再生」を表したRenaissanceとの合成語で、ダビンチの人体図に模した紹介記事もあったんですが。。。日本で言うと阿部寛みたいな立ち位置なんでしょうか。

こういう語は記事の中で説明してくれているので気にする必要はありません。

Oscars 2014: Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor in victorious night for Dallas Buyers Club
TIM WALKER Author Biography Monday 03 March 2014

It's a triumph that almost no one would have predicted a few years ago, but Matthew McConaughey was last night crowned the Best Actor in Hollywood, capping a remarkable career renaissance by winning the Oscar for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

Erstwhile rom-com specialist McConaughey, who has taken to calling his recent career surge a “McConnaissance”, earned acclaim for his performances in Killer Joe (2011), Magic Mike (2012) and Mud (2012), as well as a compelling cameo in this year’s Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street.

THE MCCONAISSANCE
POSTED BY RACHEL SYME

This morning, Matthew McConaughey woke up to his first Oscar nomination. There’s no denying the McConaissance now, a bold second act in the American actor’s life which somehow feels as novel as it does deliberate. McConaughey’s return to the Hollywood firmament in the past two years has had an unusually organic quality to it, in that critics and audiences alike have quickly made room for his new oddball intensity and his desire to make interesting choices again after a decade of just livin’ and relying on his dimples and his baritone drawl.

The 43-year-old actor is in the midst of what some are calling a “McConaissance.” Over the past year, he not only married the mother of his three children, Brazilian model Camila Alves, but also knocked four wildly diverse film roles out of the park: a psycho killer with a fried-chicken fetish in William Friedkin’s Killer Joe; a law-abiding district attorney in Richard Linklater’s Bernie; a closeted, rough-sex-having journalist in The Paperboy; and Dallas, the G-string-rockin’ male stripper in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, the last of which earned McConaughey an Independent Spirit Award and, some say, should have scored him an Oscar nomination as well. This sort of racy, challenging fare was a far cry from the banal Hollywood romcoms that had become his stock in trade.
