Academy Award winning actor Matthew McConaughey took to Twitter on Monday sharing his issue with the word “unbelievable” and that we should all stop using it.
“‘Unbelievable’ is my least favorite word. I think we should wipe it out of the dictionary,” said McConaughey on Twitter. “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 unbelievable. Believe it.”
To many the video may appear random, but this isn’t the first time McConaughey has shared his dislike for the word. In 2015, during his commencement speech at the University of Houston, he shared similar comments about the word.
“What’s so unbelievable about tragedy, about triumph, about people that raise us up or let us down. It happens every single day.”
So, what words does McConaughey suggest we use instead? “‘Awesome,’ ‘horrible,’ ‘incredible’ – I believe those. That’s a good way to explains things. But unbelievable…nah, it just happened. Believe it.”
