Matthew McConaughey To Plant New Son's Placenta In Orchard

The above is really one of the stranger titles we’ve carried here on the Razz — but folks, it’s true!

New dad Matthew McConaughey is planning to follow a ritual common in some cultures of planting the placenta of a new born. The idea is that the tree is a constant reminder of the child’s life on this planet — growing year by year right along with the newborn. McConaughey, whose girlfriend Camila Alves gave birth to their son Levi in July, saved the placenta after becoming inspired to do so after a trip to Australia.

“When I was in Australia, they had a placenta tree that was on the river … and all the placentas of all that tribe, all that clan, whatever aboriginal tribe that was, all the placentas went under that one tree and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength,” the actor said in an interview.

Interested in planting your own placenta tree? Well, there are instructions hereand a video here.

I’m going out on a “limb” here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if McConaughey will one day opt for a green burial as well. Besides Rachel McAdams, Woody Harrelson, or Ed Begley Jr., he’s the only celebrity I can seriously see saying “screw it” to the modern cemetery and throwing a tree over his body.
