Matthew Mcconaughey's hat from 'Dallas Buyer's Club' has fetched $13,000 at auction.
The white cowboy hat worn by the hunky star for his Oscar winning performance as AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in the drama movie reached three times its starting bid price of $3,000 when it was sold by auction house Nate D. Sanders in Los Angeles.
The hat is a size 7 and 3/8 with a 4-inch brim and made in Texas. The headwear was also sold with a certificate of authenticity from Universal Pictures.
The hat is signed under the brim, where Matthew wrote in black marker pen: ''Just Keep Living, Matthew McConaughey.''
Matthew's words are a reference to lines said by his character David Wooderson in 1993's 'Dazed and Confused', his first role, where he said: ''Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N'.''
Matthew and his wife, Camila, have also established a foundation called J.K. Livin, which is set up to benefit high school students.
Collecting his Oscar for 'Dallas Buyer's Club', Matthew thanked his family, including his mother, Mary, his late father, James, his wife, and their three children, Levi, five, Vida, four and Livingston, 14 months.
He also said: ''I want to thank God, because he's the one I look up to, he's graced my life with opportunities which I know are not of my hand or any other human hand.
''He has shown me that it's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late [British actor] Charlie Laughton, who said, 'When you got God you got a friend and that friend is you.' ''
