He’s always been a fan favorite, and Matthew McConaughey was in good spirits as he dropped by “ Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday evening (February 19).

The “Dazed and Confused” hunk talked about his Oscar nomination for “Dallas Buyers Club,” and even admitted he’d use his famous, “Alright, alright, alright!” in his acceptance speech if he wins Best Actor.

Kimmel cited the extreme weight loss McConaughey endured for the role- “I feel like just based on that alone, you should get it. Right?”

But Matthew disagreed- “The lengths an artist will go is not the measure of excellence for a role. Doing that for five months put me in a place where I was able to study and surround myself with everything Ron Woodroof, everything about HIV and AIDS, at that time, and it was the perfect tool. I didn’t even know it would be until I was doing it.”
