Poor Matthew McConaughey looked horrendous in a new photograph he shared on social media after losing a fight with…a bee.

Things were not ‘alright alright alright’ for Matthew, 54, as he shared a photograph of his swollen face on social media.

The actor grinned in the photograph showing his eye had completely swollen shut and looked incredibly puffy in comparison to the other side of his face.

The Dallas Buyers Club star captioned the photo with a little joke that read: ‘bee swell.’

This message highlighted that the injury was an allergic reaction to a bee sting rather than anything more major.

Although bee stings can be dangerous, the grin on the handsome actor’s face showed that he was perfectly fine.

Fans flocked with their concern for the star’s minor injury, with footballer David Beckham leading the comment section with a message that read: ‘Ouch @officiallymcconaughey.’

Bear Grylls joked: ‘Oh yeah brother! I’ve been there… 😂😉’ referencing the time he was also stung by a bee and his entire face was unrecognisable because it was so swollen.

Cindy Crawford commented on the post: ‘Ouch!’

Twilight star Peter Facinelli commented with a winking joke: ‘😉 back at ya.’

This look for Matthew was very far removed from his usual Hollywood heartthrob look.

The star is known and loved as a noughties rom-com lead. He memorably worked on How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Wedding Planner, and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past early in his career.

He also set pulses racing as a stripper named Dallas in Magic Mike in 2012 – another iconic role for the Oscar-winning actor.

Before sharing this bee sting update on social media, Matthew shared a post celebrating his son Levi’s 16th birthday.

The Interstellar actor shares three kids with his wife, Camila Alves – Levi, Vida and Livingston.

The couple has been together since 2006 and tied the knot in 2012. In his social media, Camila is a constant presence and has been snapped supporting her husband at various red-carpet events.
