Where Did Matthew McConaughey’s “Alright, Alright, Alright” Come From?



You probably know Matthew McConaughey‘s classic “alright, alright, alright” line was first heard in Dazed and Confused, but the phrase wasn’t written into the movie’s script. So do you know where McConaughey pulled that now famous string of words from? Because it’d be a lot cooler if you did.

Recently Matt sat down with George Stroumboulopoulos to talk about playing Wooderson in Dazed and his technique for developing the character. Turns out Wooderson only cared about four things all of which could be summed up in six easy syllables — alright, alright, alright.
