Alright, alright, alright.

Matthew McConaughey was stunned by his “beautiful” new Madame Tussauds wax figure Tuesday when he laid eyes on it for the first time alongside the ladies of “The View.”

The set of the daytime talk show briefly transformed into the famed wax museum as the 53-year-old “Dallas Buyers Club” star — and co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, and Alyssa Farah Griffin anticipated the statue’s reveal.

“Can we get a drumroll,” Haines asked as the curtain raised, revealing McConaughey’s scary-accurate figure, which is now on display at Madame Tussauds in New York City.

“Wow,” McConaughey said as he approached the figure, “I feel like AI’s alive and well.”

“I don’t remember when, but I did wear this suit,” McConaughey said of the stunning green look he wore on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” back in December 2021.

“And I remember those shoes,” he said of the black and white loafers.

One of the co-hosts also marveled at the figure’s wedding band that is very similar to McConaughey’s real one. Both are engraved with “6.22” on them.

The numbers reportedly refer to his favorite Bible passage, Matthew 6:22, which was read at his wedding to his wife Camila Alves in 2012.

Goldberg then jokingly asked “if the figure is as good at giving foot rubs” as McConaughey famously rubbed Behar’s feet on the show in 2006.

“He does this — he does the foot rub from here,” McConaughey shot back, wiggling his hands out in front of the figure while standing behind it.

“That is wild… it feels like it’s alive,” “Bravo!” he said, inspecting the figure up and down. “Bravo! From a distance of five feet I’m like blown, OK. Wow, I’m looking in the mirror!, I thought that as I got closer it was going to become less realistic, but it doesn’t. It become more realistic!

Oscar-winning McConaughey stopped by “The View” to promote his new book, “Just Because” — but also treated Behar to another foot massage.

The fiery, red-headed host admitted that the first rub 17 years ago was a precious “highlight” of her life.
