Matthew McConaughey: Ridiculous Man

Splash News: 1,001, 1,002, 1,003...Three words, guys: Just Keep Livin'. That is the bro-ho mantra of our favorite bongo-drumming cowboy-accented rom-com hero, Matthew McConaughey (Yikes, sorry Woody Harrelson!) It's also the name of Matt's new men's clothing line for Dillard's. JKL aims to take the average man "from the jungle to the opera" through a portal known as the polo shirt (from $49.95).

So let's get this straight: he does outdoor yoga-nastics, he naked drums like a maniac, he can't stand up straight on a movie poster to save his life, and he designs mass-market casual Friday clothes for men? If that isn't a Ridiculous Man, I don't know what is. If you don't love him for his wildly successfully and utterly surrealist existence, then maybe we haven't gotten our point across. Here's why Matty McC deserves the RM honor:

Because right after he made his indie movie debut in 1993 with the high-acclaimed "Dazed and Confused," he made his slasher movie debut in the lowly-acclaimed "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation."

Because he's the only man in the world who's starred in not one, but two, Kate Hudson movies. And let's be honest, it would have been three if Owen Wilson would just cool it.

Because when he portrayed a smooth-talking Hollywood lothario on season three of Sex and the City, he was asked to play himself.

Because his only run-in with police involved a pair of bongos and an unbridled urge to play them relentlessly in the nude.

Because during an interview with The Advocate he was super adamant in clearing up any rumors that he used a butt stunt double in the film "Magic Mike" and then said things like, "I gotta dance, man."

Because if he's not photographed in a pose fit for the cover of a Harlequin romance novel, he's probably busy holding up a wall with his back.

Because he can't seem to find an indoor yoga studio.

Because when his wife, Camilla, gave birth to their son, Levi, in 1999, McConaughey was "right between her legs" and at the same time "DJ-ing this Brazilian music.” Because this is impossible to draw a mental picture of.

Because he reportedly is never without his toothbrush but refuses to wear deodorant. His reasoning:  "I don't like to smell like someone or something else." Huh?

Because it's impossible to spell his name without Googling it.

Because he's really good at playing guys named "Buddy Deeds" and "Billy Buck."

Because there is no logical reason to show up shirtless for a film table read.

Because you can knock him down all you want (see Stewie), but he'll still get up and make insanely profitable box office movies, and then vacation in Hawaii for six months. Because he's good at life.

Because he just keeps livin'—he doesn't even need your damn 'g.'
