Matthew McConaughey scores big with Austin newspaper ad to Nick Foles
KVUE — Matthew McConaughey had a Texas-sized congratulations ready for Super Bowl MVP — and Austin's own — Nick Foles when he opened up his Sunday morning paper.
On February 11, the Academy Award-winning Texan bought a full-page advertisement in the Austin American-Statesman to show his respect for Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles after they defeated the New England Patriots.
The ad reads: "From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles. Just keep livin, Matthew McConaughey."
While McConaughey is reportedly an uber Washington football fan [not a Cowboy's fan], he clearly knows where his loyalty lies: the great state of Texas.
Austin American-Statesman managing editor John Bridges called it a "bromance, Austin-style."
The Eagles Super Bowl win on February 4 rocked Central Texas and the Westlake community where Foles grew up. Foles' baby girl also won the hearts of America, as she was apparently the cutest honorary-MVP of the big match up.
