AUSTIN (KXAN) — The origin of Matthew McConaughey’s famous line in his breakout movie “Dazed and Confused” made the “front page of the Internet,” also known as reddit.

The Texas star used that catchphrase – “Alright, alright, alright” – during his Oscars award speech for his leading role in “Dallas Buyers Club” at the 86th Academy Awards.

In a 2011 interview, McConaughey explained where that saying came from, explaining “its unlikely connection to ‘Doors’ singer Jim Morrison.”

The key for this one: three out of four as he portrayed the “David Wooderson” character in the coming-of-age 1993 film.
