Matthew McConaughey Gushes About His Wife in Interview

Swoon! What a sweetie!

In a recent interview with People magazine True Detective star, Matthew McConaughey opened up about his relationship with his wife Camila Alves and the night he fell in love with her.

Matthew candidly gushed about when he first laid eyes on the Brazilian-American beauty back in 2006.

“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. 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?' Then that went and sat down and I tried to get that's attention, and as I tried 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 arse out of your chair and go get her.' Which I did."

The actor went on to describe their first exchange, which was, in fact, in Portuguese, and how he knew she was the one.

“The self-respect she had for herself, her relationship with her family, the way she respected me, but never took anything for granted… there were no errors," he said.

Matthew explained that he wasn't looking for love back in 2006 and that he was very happily single - until he met Camila. Proving to be equally romantic as some of his on-screen characters, the cuteness continued…

“We went on our first date three nights later. I knew then; the next night after that I wanted to go on another date. The next night after that I wanted to go on another date. And I’ve been wanting to go on a date with her for the past nine years and not with anybody else.”

*Smiles and clutches heart*

The pair, who were married in Texas in 2012, have three children: Levi, 7, Vida, 6, and Livingston, 3.
