Matthew McConaughey has enjoyed an interesting career. Whether it be the beginning where he starred in supporting roles, the late 1990s where he moonlighted as a leading man in outings such a A Time to Kill, the mid-2000s in rom-com purgatory or, the 2010s where he became one of the most well-respected actors of the contemporary era, McConaughey’s career has been one of the most oscillating we’ve ever seen.

He’s known as an ice-cool Texan who loves playing the bongos in the nude in his spare time. His recent memoir Greenlights is one of the most genuine efforts a Hollywood actor has ever produced. A big character whose career has been as interesting as his life, it’s likely we’ll be discussing Matthew McConaughey for many years to come.

However, you know as well as I, that there is one moment that stands out in his career that is more enduring in popular culture than his portrayal of the mercurial Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club or the philosophically bleak Rust Cohle in True Detective. Of course, we’re talking about his turn as David Wooderson in 1993’s Dazed and Confused.
