Everything really is bigger in Texas -- including grand gestures.

Matthew McConaughey wanted to celebrate fellow Texan Nick Foles after his Feb. 4 Super Bowl victory, so the Oscar winner decided to do it in style. He took out a full-page ad honoring Foles in his hometown newspaper, the Austin American-Statesman. McConaughey wrote:

From one local to another,

Congratulations, Nick Foles.

just keep livin,

Mathew McConaughey

The ad came after an exciting Super Bowl that pitted backup quarterback Foles against seasoned vet Tom Brady, a man whose spot in the Hall of Fame is basically pending his retirement. Foles had stepped in to replace the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, after he suffered a season-ending injury in Week 14. In Wentz's absence, Foles led the team to Super Bowl LII, where he threw for 373 years, including three touchdowns. He even recorded a touchdown reception.

The newest Super Bowl MVP was happy to receive McConaughey's congratulations. Foles replied to a tweet with a photo of the ad on Feb. 12, writing, "This is awesome. Appreciate the support, @McConaughey!"

What a gesture. To quote "Friday Night Lights," Texas forever.
