Olympics: Matthew McConaughey, Leslie Jones are superfans
Alright, alright, alright! Looks like Leslie Jones has some company at the Rio Olympics.
The Saturday Night Live comedian — who was recruited by NBC to put her live-tweeting prowess to work at the Olympic Games — tweeted a video of herself and The Dark Tower actor Matthew McConaughey poolside in Rio, along with the caption, “Best Olympics fans!!”
“Real American fans right here for the Olympics,” Jones says in the video, posted shortly after U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps won the men’s 200-meter individual medley, earning his 22nd gold medal. “Team USA, slay all day! That’s what we do, and we don’t play.”
McConaughey chimes in: “And it’s happening.”
McConaughey has been spotted attending rugby and swimming events, and earlier Thursday, Jones live-tweeted the women’s gymnastics competition, posing with medalists Simone Biles and Aly Raisman.
