The depth of their friendship came to light Wednesday as Fieri finally and rightfully received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. McConaughey gave an endearing speech during the ceremony, referencing their 15-year friendship, per HuffPost. That friendship began many moons ago when McConaughey called Fieri to ask for restaurant recommendations for an upcoming road trip. Is this how Hollywood works? What a world. The two later met up, and Fieri asked McConaughey for advice on handling his newfound fame.
McConaughey clapped it up for Fieri, who he says is authentic, not a food snob, and “could out-hustle a lot of people with equal talent.”
