Matthew McConaughey Spent His Birthday Giving Away Turkeys

By  | 

Giving away free turkeys might sound like an odd way to celebrate your 48th birthday, but for Matthew McConaughey, it seemed like the alright (alright, alright) thing to do. Austin 360 reports that McConaughey teamed up with Wild Turkey Bourbon to deliver 4,500 turkeys along with 250 other volunteers on November 4 in the company’s hometown of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.

Before the deliveries began, McConaughey spoke to the volunteers to get them ready for the busy day. “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…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,” he told the crowd with that McConaughey smile fans know so well.

On his official Facebook page, McConaughey filmed the delivery of a turkey to a group of women who were extremely excited to see him! Watch the video here, but be sure to turn down the volume if you can’t handle the sounds of a few excited shrieks. The group seemed very starstruck but maintained a good dose of southern charm.
