Matthew McConaughey's high school promo photo revealed

Tuesday March 4, 2014

Matthew McConaughey may be an Oscar winner, but nearly 30 years ago he was just an ordinary high school boy excited about going to prom.

Shortly after the announcement was made that Matthew had scooped the Best Actor award for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, an excited Twitter user shared a photo from years gone by.

"My aunt's high school prom date just won an Oscar. Congrats, Matthew McConaughey! #oscars," wrote Leah Pickett, a contributor to the Chicago Tribune.

The retro snap shows a fresh-faced Matthew beaming out at the camera, standing next to and holding hands with his pretty blonde date at Longview High School.

The image was instantly retweeted nearly 9,000 times in less than 12 hours, with Leah assuring followers that her aunt "is still beautiful, and happily married."

Matthew, 44, is married to Camila Alves and the couple have three children. He recently revealed that he wants to have another baby with the stunning Brazilian model.
