That’s what we like about celebrities — the older we get, the more they stay the same. Or so would say Matthew McConaughey’s character in Dazed and Confused. Considering the picture that just surfaced on Reddit, we’d say it’s pretty appropriate right about now.
That’s because one user of the social media sharing platform posted a picture of his great-great-grandfather recently, and the resemblance to the actor is pretty uncanny. If we didn’t know any better, we might have even thought the portrait was one taken of the star for one of his roles.
See what we mean? The eyes, cheeks, nose and eyebrows pretty much scream Matthew.
“My Great Great Grandfather looks just like Matthew McConaughey,” reads the caption by user EmberRainbow.
We have to say that we completely agree. But, considering there are supposedly seven doppelgängers per person out there in the world, we’re not completely surprised either. Just fascinated.
So far the post has received a couple of hundred comments from quick-witted readers invoking everything from Lincoln jokes (the car as opposed to the man) and lines from some of McConaughey’s more famous movies.
Sadly, the Reddit user has declined to give their real name or their relative’s — for now we’ll just have to speculate that he was some sort of banker, farmer or… carnie snake-oil seller perhaps?
Well all right, all right, all right.
