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.
