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.' "

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY & BRYAN CRANSTON Big Winners At 2014 TCA Awards

Jul 20 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

30th Annual Television Critics Association Awards
The Television Critics Awards (TCA) don’t get as much attention as other awards shows because they aren’t televised. However, they can be a good sign of things to come at the Primetime Emmys, which are next month, so the 2014 TCA winners are still interesting to see. ‘Breaking Bad’ won big, as did Matthew McConaughey’s HBO show, ‘True Detective.’ Apparently the TCAs lets winners know ahead of time to help ensure they’ll come, which led to an awkward acceptance speech ...

Anonymous Content & HBO Celebrates The Golden Globes In Anticipation Of The Premiere Of HBO's "True Detective"
A smattering of Emmy make-goods and perhaps a bit of prognosticating, winners of the 2014 Television Critics Association Awards run the gamut from the expected (True Detective and Orange Is the New Black) to complete surprises (RuPaul's Drag Race).Perhaps the biggest referendum among the 13 honorees is The Good Wife. The CBS drama, coming off of a critically-lauded sixth season, earned the kudo for outs ...

As previously reported, the singer spent a recent evening at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood, an establishment that is open to those under 21. But it is not permitted to serve these youngsters alcohol.

Jerry Seinfeld Performs At Hard Rock Live
One of the appeals of sport is that, in the stands and in the bleachers, all spectators may consider themselves equal. Sure there are box seats close to the action, and there are nosebleed seats that may or may not require binoculars for some, but as far as witnessing the spirit of competition is concerned, all fans are on the same level. In modern society, many have come to look up to celebrities. Whether a celebrity be an actor or actress, a musician, a politician, or an athlete thems ...
