On Thursday, Feb. 20, Matthew McConaughey made an appearance on Inside the Actors Studio where there was a deep discussion of McConaughey’s life as an actor as well as a husband.
Brazilian model Camila Alves, McConaughey’s wife, was sitting in the audience during his appearance. According to Us Weekly, after some talk about her husband’s roles in romantic comedies, the host of the show James Lipton switched the attention on Alves and asked the two how they met.
“We met at a bar on Sunset Boulevard,” Alves told Lipton.
When Lipton asked if she experienced love at first sight, she smiled and replied, “Um…”
McConaughey interrupted her pause saying that he experienced love at first sight, however his wife did not. When he said it, Alves appeared to be shocked. She stated that her husband had never admitted that he experienced love at first sight before.
Lipton then asked Alves if McConaughey was anything like the romantic comedy roles that he often plays, using The Wedding Planner as an example.
“It’s very funny because people see him onscreen or out there in public in a certain way, and they have this vision of him being this romantic and so passionate. Just very romantic and grabs you and kisses you,” Alves answered. “And sometimes I’m like, ‘Who is this guy? Can you be a little bit of that?”
She said she’s sometimes tempted to ask if the character on the screen can come home for a while.
Lipton asked McConaughey to confirm what his wife was saying and he replied, “Absolutely.”
