The Origin Of Matthew McConaughey's 'Alright, Alright, Alright'


The Origin Of Matthew McConaughey's 'Alright, Alright, Alright'

Matthew McConaughey’s cry of “alright, alright, alright” was a big hit at the 86th Academy Awards last night when he uttered it after winning the best actor award for Dallas Buyers Club.

“Alright, alright, alright” isn’t new, though. McConaughey’s been rocking that catchphrase since portraying the David Wooderson character in the coming of age film Dazed And Confused in 1993.

In a 2011 interview, McConaughey told George about the origin of the saying — and explained its unlikely connection to Doors’ singer Jim Morrison.

  1. Matthew may not know this but the saying "Alright Alright Alright Alright " originated from the " Great Three Stooges " short think it was Larry who laid it on Moe to look leave Him the Fuck Alone 👍🤩

  2. He was very engaging and personable, nice to see in a guy of his stature. I recall Billy Bob Thornton and the ass he made of himself with his tantrum on CBC Radio Canada, and how he humiliated the host at the time. It was celebrity privilege at its best, and pretty poor to say the least. McConaughey was a good guy to Strombo on Canadian TV.

  3. Matt:“Ever heard that (live Doors)recording?” Interviewer: “Of course”….. Yeaaa OK bullshit man u do not know what recording he is talking about from four fucking “alright”s you probably never listened to the Doors once in your life you lying sack of shit
