Mcconaughey Loses Bet With Johnson
MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY owes country singer JAMEY JOHNSON $500 (£312) after losing a football bet with his pal.
The Hollywood actor put money down on his beloved college team Texas Longhorns winning a game against Alabama in January (10), with both stars promising to donate their winnings to the loser's chosen charity.
MCConaughey lost the bet after his team was defeated, but he's having trouble keeping his side of the bargain after Johnson asked him give the money to Gamblers Anonymous.
He tells Life & Style magazine, "We made a $500 bet on the Texas-Alabama national championship game, with the money going to the winner's chosen charity. Jamey wanted to donate the $500 to Gamblers Anonymous, but they wouldn't take it. So I'm writing this cheque to him so he can finally go out a winner and get out of the gambling game."
