WATCH: Matthew McConaughey Delivers Famous Catchphrase at San Angelo Whataburger
SAN ANGELO, TX -- It's not every day that A-list celebrities stop in San Angelo, so you could imagine the surprise for Whataburger employees when Texas native Matthew McConaughey drove through for a bite to eat on Monday.
The star stopped at the Whataburger on 19th St. and seemed to be really inconspicuous. Nobody recognized him until an employee brought up the last name on the card used for the purchase.
"His credit card said a different [first] name, but it said his last name," Whataburger employee Elizabeth Hernandez said.
After looking at the card, Hernandez looked out the window and knew it was Matthew McConaughey and the employees began asking questions to which McConaughey played along.
"One of my other friends opened the window and asked, 'Are you related to him?'" Hernandez recalled. "He joked and said 'I'm his twin brother.' I was like, 'He doesn't have a twin.' He was like 'you really think I'm his twin brother?' I said, you're actually him."
McConaughey confirmed Hernandez's suspicions and offered to take pictures with the employees and say his patented catchphrase from Dazed and Confused, so long as he got his food first.
After that, everything was "Alright, alright, alright."
"We were all excited because nobody famous really comes to San Angelo like that," Hernandez said. "We were just in shock. We kept talking about it when we left work."
