Actor Matthew McConaughey says that if he is not an actor today, he would be a teacher or an astronaut by now. The veteran actor is known for his roles in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Dallas Buyers Club." His most memorable movie moment is from "Dazed and Confused," where he says "Alright, alright, alright." But not a lot of people know that he is currently working as a professor at the University of Texas at Austin.

As a young man, Matthew McConaughey attended the University of Texas at Austin and joined the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He graduated in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in Radio, Television and Film. He originally wanted to attend Southern Methodist University but his family's finances could not afford it. Eventually it worked out because he returns to his alma mater every year to teach his craft and share his knowledge from the film and entertainment industry.
