Did Matthew McConaughey Steal ‘Alright, Alright, Alright’ ?

Matthew McConaughey is likely still riding high from his recent Oscar win for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey has certainly come a long way from his first role as David Wooderson in Dazed and Confused. However, he still can’t get away from his famous catchphrase, “alright, alright, alright.”

McConaughey even concluded his unconventional Academy Award acceptance speech with his famous saying. But recently it was revealed that he stole it, or perhaps borrowed it, from Doors late front man Jim Morrison.

The actor recently appeared on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight and explained the origins of his catchphrase. He mentioned that it was inspired by Morrison having said “alright” four times in-between songs to get the crowd pumped up.

McConaughey was listening to a live Doors album on the way to shoot his first scene ever and thought about the fact that his character was motivated by four things.

“He’s about four things. He’s about, ya know, his car, he’s about getting high, hes about rock ‘n’ roll and pickin up chicks. And I go, ‘I’m in my car, I’m high as a kite, I’m listenin to rock ‘n’ roll, Action!'” McConaughey said.

He then explained that the 3 “alright’s” come from the fact that he had 3 of the four things his character was driven by. McConaughey is in the middle of a career renaissance after a run of middle range romantic comedies. Films like Mud, The Lincoln Lawyer, Killer Joe, his work on HBO’s True Detective and the upcoming Christopher Nolan sci-fi film Interstellar have all contributed to his re-invention. But no matter what, he still can’t leave behind his roots with “alright, alright, alright.”
