McConaughey Credits Jim Morrison For Dazed And Confused Catchphrase

Matthew McConaughey has revealed that his famed catchphrase from the film Dazed and Confused was actually inspired by a quote from Jim Morrison. In the film, McConaughey's character David Wooderson is known for his phrase "alright, alright, alright."

Speaking with the Huffington Post, the actor says he picked it up listening to the Doors:

"So we go up to the set. I get in the car 'cause I'm nervous. First scene ever on film. And right before we're about to shoot I've got friends in the car and I had been listening to this live Doors album and in between two of the songs Morrison goes, 'Alright! Alright! Alright! Alright!"

"So right before we're about to go I go, 'What is Wooderson about?' And I go, 'He's about four things: He's about his car, he's about gettin' high, he's about rock 'n' roll and pickin' up chicks.' I go, 'I'm in my car, I'm high as a kite, I'm listenin' to rock 'n' roll' . . . Action . . . and there's the chick. Alright, alright, alright . . . three out of four."
