Actor Matthew McConaughey is 48. 


It's been a whole week since former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 52, but the celebration is ongoing. 

As the Super Bowl MVP Foles sits atop of the football world with a trip to Disney World and bringing the Eagles the first Super Bowl in franchise history, the congratulatory messages continue to pile in. 

The latest one: actor Matthew McConaughey. 

The Oscar-award winning actor and Texas native took out of a full-ad in the Austin American-Statesman's Sunday paper to congratulate Foles for winning the Super Bowl. The note read "from one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles. Just keep livin'." 

Foles is from Austin, Texas and played at Westlake High School where he broke all of Drew Brees' passing records. McCounaughey grew up in Uvalde, Texas, which is just under a three-hour drive from Austin, and he also attended the University of Texas for college.

What a nice gesture from one Texan to another.
