The Universe in its unquestionable wisdom has seen fit to make Matthew McConaughey a star. Apparently the A-list actor sees the irony in this fact just like we do and has decided to give a little back to the cosmos. McConaughey is auctioning off his 1971 Corvette Stingray Convertible on eBay Motors with all proceeds earmarked for Oprah's Angel Network's Hurricanes Katrina and Rita recovery efforts. Currently the bidding is up to $40,040 with 25 bids.

McConaughey purchased the Stingray at a car show in 1998 and has driven it all over Texas with the top down. In his own words the car is being sold because "it will help so many with the necessities in life... [and] I can't pull my Airstream with it."
