McConaughey isn't the only celebrity putting skills to good use.

Last month saw Hollywood royalty Robert De Niro and Danny Devito plea with New Yorkers to stay home and social distance during the pandemic.

It also witnessed Samuel L. Jackson give a dramatic reading of an expletive-filled book, which urges the public to "stay the f**k at home".

The Pulp Fiction actor took part in an interview from home on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he read an updated version of the popular book "Go the f**k to sleep," which was written by Adam Mansbach.

According to the Glass star, Mansbach approached him with an up-to-date version of his poem for the coronavirus, which mixes explicit language with child-like rhyme.

Jackson - who had had previously read for his audiobook - jumped at the chance to read the update, which began: "Stay the f** at home. Corona is spreading, this shit is no joke".

He added: "It's no time to work or roam. The way you can fight it is simple my friends, stay the fuck at home.

"Now technically I’m not a doctor. But motherfuckers listen when I read a poem. So here I am, Sam F**king Jackson, imploring you: Keep your ass at home.

"If you want things to get back to normal, don't panic. Just use your dome. Wash your hands, stop touching your face and stay the f**k at home.”
