Listen to the story of how Matthew McConaughey wooed his wife and it could be straight out of one of his rom-coms.
On Tuesday, the Gold actor told Howard Stern how he wooed Camila Alves, his wife of four years, joking, “I kidnapped her for our first date.”
“So I’m healthily single at a club on Sunset,” he recalled. “I’m not even a club guy, but this night I was a club guy. And I’m making margaritas at the end of the table, and this figure moves across the room, and I remember to myself I go, ‘What is that?’ I didn’t say, ‘Who is that?’ I said ‘What is that?’”
“Like an extra terrestrial,” Stern said.
“Yeah! She sits down and I can’t get my eyes off her and I’m waving trying to get [her attention], ‘Hey, over there!’ Finally catch her eye, and as soon as she looks at me the Jiminy Cricket in me says, ‘Boy, get off your a**, this is not the type of woman you call across the room,’” McConaughey said. “I go over and introduce myself, I do do the smart thing of inviting her and her friends over.”
But the Brazilian model left her group to join Matthew McConaughey’s table alone. Here’s the story.
