Matthew McConaughey's hat fetches 13k

Mar 28 2014, 3:26pm CDT | by

Matthew McConaughey's hat from 'Dallas Buyer's Club' has fetched $13,000 at auction.

The white cowboy hat worn by the hunky star for his Oscar winning performance as AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in the drama movie reached three times its starting bid price of $3,000 when it was sold by auction house Nate D. Sanders in Los Angeles.

The hat is a size 7 and 3/8 with a 4-inch brim and made in Texas. The headwear was also sold with a certificate of authenticity from Universal Pictures.

The hat is signed under the brim, where Matthew wrote in black marker pen: "Just Keep Living, Matthew McConaughey.''

Matthew's words are a reference to lines said by his character David Wooderson in 1993's 'Dazed and Confused', his first role, where he said: "Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N'."

Matthew and his wife, Camila, have also established a foundation called J.K. Livin, which is set up to benefit high school students.

Collecting his Oscar for 'Dallas Buyer's Club', Matthew thanked his family, including his mother, Mary, his late father, James, his wife, and their three children, Levi, five, Vida, four and Livingston, 14 months.

He also said: "I want to thank God, because he's the one I look up to, he's graced my life with opportunities which I know are not of my hand or any other human hand.

"He has shown me that it's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late [British actor] Charlie Laughton, who said, 'When you got God you got a friend and that friend is you.' "

Justin Bieber: Paying Chaperones to Keep Him Out of Trouble?

Aug 28 2014 9:10am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Trouble has a way of finding Justin Bieber. Bieber's assault on a fan at a Dave & Buster's earlier this week is just the latest of JB's many scrapes with the law, and a clear violation of his probation.  While he still keeps up swaggy appearances, Justin is said to be very frightened by the prospect of going to prison. In fact, sources say he's so scared he's hired a c ...

Sarah Silverman: Stoned at the Emmys?

Aug 26 2014 2:54pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Sarah Silverman picked up an award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Program at the 2014 Emmys last night, and it seems the actress and comedienne may have started celebrating before she even hit the red carpet. Even though Silverman was one of the fashion hits of the Emmys she clearly didn't want to engage in the typical "Who are you wearing?" banter so she permitted E! News' Giuliana Rancic to go through her clutch. Apparently she ...

Aug 26 2014 9:37am CDT | Source: CBS San Francisco

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” triumphed at Monday’s Emmy Awards, proving that established broadcast and cable fare retains the power to fend off challenges from upstart online series such as “Orange Is the New Black.” The ceremony’s emotional high point came with Billy Crystal’s restrained and graceful remembrance of Robin Williams, who was found dead Aug. 11, an apparent suicide. “He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him,” Crystal said of ...

Kristen Wiig, Amanda Peet, Anna Clumsky & Camila Alves: who wore white best?

Aug 26 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I usually brace myself for bad fashion when it comes to Kristen Wiig, but she brought her very best game to the Emmys last night. She must have a new stylist because she looks fantastic instead of frumpy. Kristen wore this flattering Vera Wang custom halter gown made of white silk. The thigh-high slit makes this dress pop. The tailoring may be a little off, but I think any awkwardness can be attributed to Kristen’s posture. She’s not used to the siren look, so she’s not working it. One has per ...
