Matthew McConaughey, an actor often found topless while jogging on beaches, turned 44 years old today. The Texan native — who has brought such joy to the world with his smooth drawl, piercing eyes, wavy locks, bongo-playing skills, and echoing usage of "all right" — has played everything from a stoner to a rom-com heartthrob to a male stripper over the course of his career. Take a second to celebrate his 44th by gazing into his (and his dog's) eyes, or by watching a clip from Magic Mike.
