Actor Matthew McConaughey bleeds Texas. A native of the small Texas town, Uvalde, and current resident of Austin, the Academy Award winner graduated from the University of Texas before starting his acting career.
Needless to say, McConaughey was pretty pumped when fellow Texas native Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl LII win over the New England Patriots last Sunday.
Now, using his vast amount of wealth, McConaughey took out a full page ad in the American-Statesman Sunday morning to congratulate Foles on his championship.

Overlooked for the majority of the 2017 season, Foles replaced an injured Carson Wentz under center in Week 14 and ultimately led the Eagles to three playoff victories while earning Super Bowl LII MVP honors.
The Foles’ situation has taken on more of a legendary feel since he led Philadelphia to its first Super Bowl title. The backup comes in No. 3 on the SNIPdaily Pennsylvania Top 100 for the month, ahead of even head coach Doug Pederson. And while that popularity has taken a back seat over the past several days, fans in Philadelphia won’t soon forget about what Foles did for this organization — even if he is traded during the offseason.
None of this really matters for McConaughey. It’s all about Hook ’em Horns, and seeing an Austin native defeat Tom Brady had to be big time for him. “All right, all right, all right.”
