A true detective is also a true gentleman.

On Nov. 28, some lucky students at The University of Texas at Austin got a ride home from one of its most famous alumni, Matthew McConaughey.

The Oscar-winning actor took part in the university’s Students United for Rape Elimination’s Walk program (SURE Walk), in which members of the college community volunteer to escort students home late at night to ensure their safety and peace of mind.

On Nov. 29, The University of Texas student government posted a picture to Facebook showing McConaughey driving a golf cart packed with three beaming students and a fourth in the back seat with her head down. 

Matthew McConaughey ensures students get home safe.

It is unknown why that one particular passenger was not sharing her peers’ enthusiasm at the moment the image was captured. Perhaps she was texting excitedly about her surprise chauffeur or just felt a little dazed and confused.

What is known, however, is that the “Interstellar” star has recently been active on the campus where he graduated back in 1993.

The actor has been seen cheering on the Longhorns from the stands, encouraging student players and had a stint as “Professor McConaughey,” in which he taught a filmmaking class.

Here’s hoping he finds time to teach a “Magic Mike”-esque seminar in the near future, too:
