A twentysomething Matthew McConaughey, before he was a household name, before he won an Oscar and before we knew what he looked like without a shirt on… he was just a kid fresh out of acting school hanging out at the Hyatt Hotel bar in Austin, Texas.

It was there that he met casting director Don Phillips, who was working on Richard Linklater’s ‘Dazed and Confused’. Of course McConaughey with his charm and swagger immediately hit it off with Don (to the point where they got kicked out of the bar for being so drunk), which got him his first ever audition.

Feast your eyes here! You won’t be disappointed. 

Love this? You’ll love this bit from Kyle & Jackie O!
