Actor Matthew McConaughey lost out on a $35,000 lawsuit after he was named the most handsome guy in high school.

The “Magic Mike” star suffered from oily skin as a teenager and turned to mink oil to help treat the problem.

He tells late night host Jimmy Fallon, “Three years before I got this award for Most Handsome, I’m a teenager, I’m 15-years-old. Oily skin, you got a few pimples and stuff. Well, my mom is peddling this stuff, the oil of mink…”

After using the mink oil for a few weeks, McConaughey developed acne and had to be placed on medication, prompting his parents to file a lawsuit for emotional distress, alleging he had a hard time dating because of his awful skin.

During the deposition years later, the lawyer pulled out a picture of the actor when he won the award.

He continues, “I knew right then we lost.”

The case was subsequently dismissed.
