There’s always been something about Matthew McConaughey, with his blond hair, blue eyes and ripped physique. He dated a number of famous women including Sandra Bullock and Penelope Cruz, but it took meeting model Camila Alves, the love of his life, for him to finally settle down for good. Now he’s the perfect family man, which makes him even sexier. He’s been with Alves for more than a decade now, which is why we have 8 things you didn’t know about the gorgeous couple:
They met at Hyde Lounge club on Sunset Boulevard back in 2006. He was there with Lance Armstrong and he was making margaritas at their table when he saw her from across the room. “Out of the corner of my eye, this sort of aqua-green figure went floating across the frame about 20 feet in front of me,” he said. “My eye went up and I remember what came out of my mouth. I didn’t say ‘Who is that?’ I went, ‘What is that?’ As l was trying to get that’s attention across the room, I went in my head, ‘This is not the kind of woman you call over across the room, McConaughey. Get your ass out of your chair and go get her.’ Which I did.” According to her, she didn’t recognize McConaughey. It was only when she saw Armstrong that she realized who he was. They went on their first date three days later.
