Matthew McConaughey wears a cowboy hat in an adorable throwback photo

Celebrities were children once, and it's always an adorable occasion when an A-lister shares a photo from the past.

Matthew McConaughey uploaded a sepia-toned childhood photograph to his WhoSay account on Thursday (Oct. 16), which shows the Dallas Buyers Club actor smiling, donning a straw cowboy hat and holding a sports trophy.

Josh Henderson has similarly displayed his Texan roots – as a baby, he was photographed in the buff sporting nothing but a Stetson hat.
