Matthew McConaughey takes out full-page ad for Nick Foles in Texas paper

Matthew McConaughey takes out full-page ad for Nick Foles in Texas paper”

The Hollywood star, who hails from Austin, Texas like the 29-year-old National Football League player, wrote: 'From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles'. He was at his best against the defending champions in Super Bowl 52, completing 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns.

"Foles took over for the injured Carson Wentz late in the season and led the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl", states the proclamation.

It feels safe to assume that Foles will "just keep livin" as he celebrates this offseason.

It's no secret that McConaughey is a huge sports fan and the opportunity to recognize a sports figure from Austin was a chance to do something special.

Austin American-Statesman Managing Editor John Bridges called it a "bromance, Austin-style".

Not only was Foles born in Austin, but he also went to high school there, which is why McConaughey bought the ad in the Austin American-Statesman.

As odd it may seem that an Oscar-winning actor reserved a local Texas newspaper page to congratulate the Eagles, crazier things have happened - like a player once on the precipice of retirement becoming a Super Bowl MVP. Foles baby girl also won the hearts of America, as she was apparently the cutest honorary-MVP of the big match up.
