When it comes to the 2016 Rio Olympics, the event’s sidelines have proven to be almost as eventful as the actual sports showcased, quickly becoming an unofficial event in and of itself. From Michael Phelps’ epic mad face, to Aly Raisman’s parents, who pulled some hilarious chair moves while watching their daughter compete, it’s been a pretty wild ride so far.
Now, there’s another famous face drawing our attention away from the athletes and into the stands: Matthew McConaughey.
On hand with wife Camila Alves to cheer on Team USA, Matt not only hung with the likes of gold medalist Michael Phelps, as he tweeted above, he also took time out to act out the entire rollercoaster of emotions we’ve all been experiencing while watching the games, and for that, we’re eternally grateful. Check out some of his truly riveting work below.
