McConaughey buys full-page ad congratulating Foles: Jeff Skyversky reports on Action News at 6 p.m., February 11, 2018

AUSTIN, Texas -- Matthew McConaughey thinks Nick Foles is 'Alright, alright, alright.'

The Oscar-winning actor bought a full-page ad in Sunday's Austin American-Statesman newspaper to support Foles, a fellow Austin, Texas, native.

The ad reads:

"From one local to another, Congratulations Nick Foles. Just Keep Livin, Matthew McConaughey."

John Bridges, the manager editor of the Austin American-Statesman, tweeted, "Bromance, Austin-style, in the pages of today's Austin American-Statesman as @McConaughey took out an ad to congratulate @NFoles_9. Alright, alright, alright. #FlyEaglesFly."

Brian Davis, who covers the Texas Longhorns for the paper, also posted a photo of the ad.

Last Sunday, Foles and the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl LII.

The day after winning the championship, the Super Bowl MVP, who entered the season as the backup quaterback to Carson Wentz, told reporters what people should take from his NFL journey.

"The big thing is don't be afraid to fail," Foles said. "I think when you look at a struggle in your life, just know that that's just an opportunity for your character to grow. That's really just been the message. Simple. If there's something going on in your life and you're struggling, embrace it, cause you're growing."
