Matthew McConaughey Was “High As A Kite” When He Came Up With His “Dazed And Confused” Catchphrase

Matthew McConaughey Explains How He Came Up With His "Dazed And Confused" Catchphrase
"Alright, Alright, Alright..."

The most memorable part of Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar acceptance speech, for me anyway, was when he confidently made the neither scientific nor factual statement, “It’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates.” The second most memorable part of McConaughey’s speech was that he, for the millionth time this awards season, quoted his “Dazed and Confused” character’s famous line, “Alright, alright, alright.” But it turns out that Matthew actually came up with Wooderson’s catchphrase himself, explaining its origins on “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.” I know this is going to come as a shock, but it turns out he was … high. 

“I get in the car, I’m nervous, (it’s my) first scene on film. Right before we’re about to shoot, I’ve got friends in the car … and I’ve been listening to this live Doors album, and in between two of the songs, Morrison goes ‘alright, alright, alright, alright.’ So right before we’re about to go, I’m like, what is Wooderson about? He’s about four things: He’s about his car, he’s about getting high … he’s about rock and roll, and picking up chicks. And I go: I’m in my car, I’m high as a kite, I’m listening to rock and roll – action! — and there’s the chick.”

And the rest is history. I’m guessing that “It’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates” came about the same way. [National Post]

Supercut: Matthew McConaughey Sure Is A Bummer On “True Detective”

Supercut: Matthew McConaughey Sure Is A Bummer On "True Detective"
"Human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution."

Have you been watching the phenomenal HBO show “True Detective”? Um, you should be. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson both just slay as two detectives searching for a serial hill in Louisiana, a hunt that spans nearly two decades. McConaughey is especially solid as Detective Rust Cohle, a character with a dark side that has some pretty bleak thoughts about the world and humanity. I mean, Rust Cohle is not the type to play the bongos naked, you know? Anyway, those geniuses at NYMag.com’s Vulture blog put together this supercut of some of Rust’s most nihilistic spewings. All strung together, they’re really somethin’. I need a drink. Someone pass me a Lone Star. [NYMag.com]

Matthew McConaughey Recounts The Trials And Tribulations Of Wearing A Stripper Thong

Matthew McConaughey Recounts The Trials And Tribulations Of Wearing A Stripper Thong

“You put one of those [thongs] on, and you find that your body gets kind of inverted. I had to loosen up, because this is a guy who really lives in this thing, and I had to get really loose and [down] with it. I remember going — and I wasn’t the only one who did this — I had to walk out amongst the crew and have small-time, normal conversations. ‘Hey, what’d you have for lunch? Did you see the game this weekend?’ Go out and try to have some small talk in this thong without flinching. It was hard. I wasn’t [hard], but it was.”

Matthew McConaughey shares about his thong-wearing experience on the set of “Magic Mike” as a guest on “The Graham Norton Show.” And now I’m wondering what he means by “inverted.”That word choice is conjuring all sorts of weird images. [People]

“Dallas Buyers Club” Is Going To Make Me Have All The Feelings

"Dallas Buyers Club" Is Going To Make Me Have All The Feelings
"Welcome to the Dallas Buyers Club"

The first trailer is out for the new film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS and given less than a month to live. Rather than accepting his death sentence, Woodroof went to extreme lengths to find and smuggle medication from Mexico. Eventually, Woodroof began selling those meds to other sufferers and created what became the Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew McConaughey plays Woodruff, and underwent a startling transformation, dropping more than 5o pounds for the part. Our boyfriend Jared Leto plays Rayon, an HIV+ trans woman who goes into business with McConaughey.

Even watching the three minute trailer made me tear up, you guys. This movie is going to be so heartbreaking, but so necessary to see. It’s not often that we see HIV/AIDS being represented in major film and television shows, and it seems clear that McConaughey and Leto really committed to their roles. Tears! So many tears!

10 People Who Deserve To Win An Oscar On Sunday — But They Weren’t Nominated

Oscars Drinking Game!
Play along -- and get plastered -- with us this Sunday! Read More »

The Oscars are this Sunday, which means it’s time for snotty people who think they know better — i.e. moi – to complain about who should win but can’t because the Academy was stupid to nominate them. Here are 10 people who were completely screwed out of an Oscar nod this year, which blows because if I had my way, they would all win too. (Yeah, some of them overlap in categories, but in a world where I have a say in such things, there are tons of awards to go around.) Think I missed someone? Share who you wish was nominated in the comments!

  • Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta, 80, when he retires. Ouch. [Refinery29]
  • As far as celebrities-turned-designers go, Matthew McConaughey was one of the very last guys we’d ever expect to start a menswear line… and yet JKL, inspired by his Just Keep Livin Foundation, is about to be a thing. Bizarrely, the collection will include shirts. [Huffington Post]
  • Add lingerie sales to the growing list of things that the immense, unprecedented popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey” has helped to proliferate. Riiiiiight next to whips, chains, and Ben Wa balls. [New York Times]

  • An creepy extra on the set of “Magic Mike” tried to stick her finger in Matthew McConaughey’s butt while filming one of the strip club scenes, director Steven Soderbergh revealed. “While we were shooting Matthew’s script sequence, one very impassioned woman extra pulled his G-string off and tried to stick her finger up his butt,” Soderbergh announced. McConaughey quickly clarified the woman “was trying to put it somewhere,” just not his butt. Hopefully she got tossed off set with a spritz of hand sanitizer. [VH1]
