And by that I mean pretty goddamn great. Matthew McConaughey was honored at an American Cinematheque gala and a bunch of his costars were on hand to celebrate the man and his work, including Kate Hudson, who stole the show with her dead-on impression of the Texas-born, naked bongo-playing actor. We see a lot of people mimic McConaughey’s infamous “alright, alright, alright” line from “Dazed and Confused,” but I love it when we get snippets of real-life Matthew moments, like when he encouraged Hudson to scuba dive by saying “it’s like Woodstock down there, baby.”
When it comes to celebrities, there’s a very fine line between their professional lives and personal lives. It seems like everything that should remain sacred and private is often aired out for public consumption and judgment, whether they asked for it or not. Some people sell their wedding photos to People for millions of dollars, others open up to journalists about personal family drama, and there are plenty of people who are simply living their day-to-day lives when something happens and the whole world is right there watching, gawking and passing judgment.

Dearest Mellie Grant,
You are the tragic hero the White House forgot. How different your life would be if you’d been born a man, able to use your advanced degree to change the world instead of relying on your cute outfits and good looks to get by in your husband Fitz’s shadow. He will go down in the history books for all he did for this great nation (which, mostly, he did jack shit), while your years of behind-the-scenes hard work will be attributed to his name or simply forgotten.
