As Thanksgiving day fast approaches, Matthew McConaughey is doing something we’d never thought we’d see. The “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” star was walking the streets of Lawrenceburg, Ky., delivering 4,500 Turkeys to families in the community.
In a Facebook Live video, McConaughey was at the Wild Turkey Distillery explaining the plan for the Turkey drop. And to top it off, Saturday was the Oscar winner’s 48th birthday.
“We are here at Wild Turkey Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky and today we me and 250 volunteers are going to deliver 4,500 turkeys to people around Lawrenceburg. The volunteers that are here don’t know I’m here, so Eddie Russell’s about to invite me on hopefully to surprise them… And it’s my birthday.
“They told me pretty early on that the people of Lawrenceburg are the heart and soul, backbone of their company. When they said, ‘Hey, do you want to come out here and deliver 4,500 turkeys with a bunch of volunteers on a Saturday, to some people who are going to appreciate it?’ I said, ‘Sounds like a heck of deal.”
McConaughy and the volunteers headed out to distribute all 4,500 Turkeys to those in the neighborhood.
The 48-year-old teamed up with the Distillery in 2016 when he starred in a few commercials for the brand.
