Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey has finally received his high school diploma, more than 30 years after graduating.

McConaughey was given his original diploma on Friday when he returned to his Texas alma mater to address the class of 2019.

Longview High School said graduates normally receive diploma holders during commencement ceremonies and that the actual diplomas must be picked up later.

McConaughey apparently never picked his up 31 years ago.

McConaughey (49) graduated from Longview in 1988. He responded to receiving his diploma with one word: "Proof".
