McConaughey is a self-described 'pickle expert' and has shared his love for juicy, brined cucumbers on National Pickle Day in 2021 as well
AUSTIN, TEXAS: Matthew McConaughey surprised his followers by posting an old picture of himself standing naked in front of an open refrigerator clutching a jar of pickles. The 53-year-old Oscar winner posted the picture on his Instagram account to commemorate National Pickle Day, which is observed every year on November 14.
The actor was grinning in the picture while holding up the pickle jar. He also added in the caption, "Pickled #nationalpickleday." In the picture he is half turned towards the camera revealing his impressive and muscular back. McConaughey was shown searching through his completely stocked refrigerator, which was filled with condiments like mustard and soy sauce, while sporting a scruffy beard and unruly, wavy hair. The photo is cut off just above his bare buttocks, showing just a sliver of his propped leg.
As reported by Daily Mail, within five hours, he received more than 396,045 likes and hundreds of comments from followers expressing their want to "frame" the picture. "Excuse me while I go for the soy sauce," one follower wrote. "Yeah. This is how my husband gets the pickles out of the fridge. It’s really the only way. I ain’t complaining." wrote another follower. "Who cropped this photo?" another user comment. "I'm upset." another user added, "Please post more like this?" while another follower chimed, "How is this so attractive." One user appreciated the photograph with McConaughey's iconic line from 'Dazed and Confused', "Alright, Alright, Alright."
The father of three and self-described "pickle expert" has previously discussed his fondness of juicy, brined cucumbers. On National Pickle Day, 2021, McConaughey shared on social media the "origin story" of the well-liked appetiser, Fox News reported.
"Howdy howdy, McConaughey here, coming at you this time as a pickle expert to talk about pickles, which I love so dearly," he started the video. "We have to go back to their origin story, a cucumber," McConaughey shared. "Now, look at this cucumber — big, plump, firm, bold, lots of promise. Oh, this is gonna be good. And then... you take a bite. It's all hat no cattle; it's all packaging no product; it has no identity; it is tasteless. All it does is take up room in our proverbial salads."
Recently McConaughey made a hilarious post after his wife Camila Alves had a terrifying fall down a set of stairs. The 40-year-old Brazilian model revealed last week that while she was healing, she needed to wear a sizable neck brace. "Sh** Happens," she began. "I am ok but… Don’t fall people…don’t fall…Ladies hold your long dresses up or lose pants up when going by down the stairs!!" She continued, "Wind blew mine as I was midair, pant fabric wrapped around my shoe and down the floor I went…A silly fall, turned into not so silly neck situation, recovery time ahead…"
