AUSTIN (KXAN) – Matthew McConaughey wants you to stop using a word.
The Texas star posted a video on twitter Monday to express his dislike of the word “incredible” and thinks it should be deleted from the dictionary.
“We shouldn’t think that the most beautiful sunset or the greatest play or the greatest love of our life or the greatest moment of euphoria is incredible. Believe it!” McConaughey said in the video.
He continues: “We should feel that the greatest tragedy or death or earthquake or natural disaster or loss is unbelievable. It’s part of life too. Believe it. We see it happening every day.
The definition of incredible is “too unlikely to be believed,” according to Merriam-Webster. The dictionary did not respond to McConaughey’s video.
This isn’t the first time the wordsmith has shared his thoughts on his least favorite word. McConaughey made the same point during a commencement address to the class of 2015 at the University of Houston.
McConaughey regularly shares video speeches on his account — ever since he opted out of giving speeches on Texas politics. After teasing a bid for Texas governor, McConaughey decided against it in November 2021.
