The cowboy hat that Matthew McConaughey wore on his way to an Academy Award is being auctioned.
The Oscar-winning actor sported the white gallon cowboy hat for 25 days while filming "Dallas Buyers Club" in Louisiana. Ron Woodroof just wouldn't have been the same without it.
The Resistol hat was made in Texas (just like the actor) and comes with a certificate of authenticity from Universal Pictures. It also includes McConaughey's signature underneath the brim of the hat in black marker with his catch phrase "Just Keep Living."

Alright, alright, alright!
No, it doesn't come with his Oscar.
Bidding will start at $3,000. The auction will end March 27 at Los Angeles-based auctioneer's Nate D. Sanders' website.
