I’m not usually a proponent of rushing the holidays (I heard Christmas music at the mall over the weekend and nearly went apoplectic), but I will give a pass to Matthew McConaughey spreading a little early Thanksgiving cheer. On Saturday, the actor celebrated his 48th birthday by helping to hand out 4,500 free frozen turkeys to the people of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
Matthew started off his charitable morning at the Wild Turkey Distillery. He’s a spokesperson for the bourbon and has been since 2016. That’s a match made in marketing heaven, if you ask me. In a Facebook Live video, Matthew surprised volunteers with an impromptu inspirational speech, telling them, “Thanksgiving, gratitude, we believe in our family that the more you’re thankful for, the more that you show gratification, the more that you’re gonna create in your life to be thankful for. I think it’s kinda scientific and here’s kind of living proof of it right here this morning.” He added, “Let’s go make some people happy and put some smiles on some faces, deliver some turkeys, there’s some people that are gonna be happy to get ‘em. Just keep livin’, thanks for being here.” (Just Keep Livin’ is Matthew’s charitable foundation, so nice plug there. He also thanked Butterball, who donated the turkeys.)

And they were off, sharing joy, and tasty turkey, with the fine folks of Lawrenceberg. Matthew posted a video of a visit to a house filled with rabid McConaughey fans, who squealed in delight at the sight of the Oscar-winning actor at their doorstep. When Matthew asked who he was chatting with, the ladies announced that they were “hot mamas.” Matthew asked, “Hot mamas?” and then joked, “That’s my nickname for my wife. I can’t call ya’ll that.” Matthew was game, taking oodles of photos with the ladies and, when one asked if he brought along any drinkable turkey with the edible one, he responded, “No, I did not bring Wild Turkey” and then kidded, “There’s a Wild Turkey hidden inside the turkey.” Bourbon-infused turkey could actually make my Thanksgiving tolerable. Make this happen, McConaughey.

I think this is pretty cool. Matthew has always struck me as a good guy, and the people of Lawrenceburg sure appreciated his being there – check out the photos that hit Instagram on Saturday. Say what you will, he’s one of the good guys.
