Matthew McConaughey Took His Shirt Off Back In The Day For ‘Unsolved Mysteries’

As the sun rose and set, before he was Wooderson, before he was creeping out Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey was wearing lots of denim and getting shot in the gut for TV’s Unsolved Mysteries. The 80′s were a weird time. Or the 90′s. Not sure when this clip was shot, but the denim makes me think 1989.

Anyway, you can almost hear the segment director for the show whispering off-camera “Act harder. Harder!” to Matthew as he stumbles around, flashing an intoxicating nipple to audiences, almost as a harbinger of the shirtless photos that were bound to grace the pages of USWeekly 15 years later.
