Matthew McConaughey: “I Want to Thank God, Because That’s Who I look Up To”

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 3, 2014

 

Actor Matthew McConaughey surprised Oscar viewers with an impassioned acceptance speech for his best actor win Sunday night – an address during which he thanked God and said that the blessings in his life have come from the Almighty and not from any “human hand.”

First off, I want to thank God, because that’s who I look up to. He has graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or of any other human hand,” McConaughey said. “He has shown me that … it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late Charlie Laughton who said, ‘When you’ve got God you’ve got a friend — and that friend is you.’”
