This isn’t the first time that the father of three, a self-proclaimed “pickle expert,” has shared his love for juicy, brined cucumbers.
Last year, McConaughey took to social media on National Pickle Day and detailed the “origin story” of the beloved snack.
“Howdy howdy, McConaughey here, coming at you this time as a pickle expert to talk about pickles, which I love so dearly,” he started the video.
“We have to go back to their origin story, a cucumber,” McConaughey shared. “Now, look at this cucumber — big, plump, firm, bold, lots of promise. Oh, this is gonna be good. And then… you take a bite. It’s all hat no cattle; it’s all packaging no product; it has no identity; it is tasteless. All it does is take up room in our proverbial salads.”

Matthew McConaughey is more than just an Oscar-winning actor and bestselling author. He’s also a "pickle expert."
“But what happens when it gets older, does it mature with age like a fine wine, does it get better and become a pickle?” he continued. “Not as firm as it once was, a few more bumps on it, it even shrunk. Let’s see what it tastes like… now we got the product, mind the packaging. Now we’ve got identity, now we’ve got purpose because we’re a pickle — sour, sweet, dill.”
“It commits. It’s the pickle, and you do tickle my fancy,” he added.
The video was hailed as a “cinematic masterpiece” by dill-lighted fans.
It’s noted that on his Instagram bio, “Dazed and Confused” and “Dallas Buyers Club” actor describes himself as a “pickle expert.”
