Matthew McConaughey Honored Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles in an Awesome Way Album

Everything really is bigger in Texas — including grand gestures.

Matthew McConaughey wanted to celebrate fellow Texan Nick Foles after his Feb. 4 Super Bowl victory, so the Oscar winner decided to do it in style. He took out a full-page ad honoring Foles in his hometown newspaper, the Austin American-Statesman. McConaughey wrote:

From one local to another,

Congratulations, Nick Foles.

Mathew McConaughey

The ad came after an exciting Super Bowl that pitted backup quarterback Foles against seasoned vet Tom Brady, a man whose spot in the Hall of Fame is basically pending his retirement. Foles had stepped in to replace the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, after he suffered a season-ending injury in Week 14. In Wentz’s absence, Foles led the team to Super Bowl LII, where he threw for 373 years, including three touchdowns. He even recorded a touchdown reception.

The newest Super Bowl MVP was happy to receive McConaughey’s congratulations. Foles replied to a tweet with a photo of the ad on Feb. 12, writing, “This is awesome. Appreciate the support, @McConaughey!
