What a beautiful love story these two share.
Hollywood is the place where dreams are made, and being part of it truly is a dream come true. A huge number of people yearn for a place under its sky, but not everyone is lucky enough to make it big in the industry.
Matthew McConaughey is one of those people who were fortunate enough to make a name for themselves in the showbiz. Over the years, he became a much loved face and gathered millions of fans. McConaughey has landed a number of iconic roles, but that in Dazed and Confused is considered by many to be his breakthrough role.
This American sweetheart is not only a famous actor, but a loving husband and a proud father of three. His love story with wife Camila Alves resembles that of a fairy-tale, and if you believed he executes roles of a romantic guy perfectly, wait until you see how charming he is around his lady.
The couple first laid eyes on one another in 2006 and tied the knot in 2012.
McConaughey never misses a chance to speak of his affection for his wife. Even years after they first met, he’s still smitten with her and he’s not afraid to confess that.
When it comes to showing his love, he doesn’t do it by buying expensive gifts, but maintains his romance in a different way.
“I don’t have a certain thing I buy her. An earnest handwritten note, that she knows I sat down and took some time and has some poetry to it, that’s worth more than whatever retail I paid for something,” McConaughey told TODAY.
He says Camila posses qualities he admires and describes her as graceful, beautiful, and having strong sense of identity. When it comes to loyalty, he says that he’s faithful to her to a point that is selfish, as reported by Playboy Magazine. He, however, adds that he loves that and wants that to stay that way.
Speaking to People, Camila said she wasn’t a typical girl, the one who dreams of getting married, but meeting McConaughey changed all that.
Besides having tight work schedules, they both make sure they spend much time with their children, and that includes movie night, trips, and a lot more. Fridays are always pretty special in their home because on those days, the kids are allowed to have pizza and everything else they please. They are even allowed to sleep in their parents’ bedroom after the festivities which often turn into dance nights.
When it comes to their parenting, the actor says he and his wife blend different styles of parenting, he’s more laid-back, but they both share similar moral values. At the end of the day, the moral traits of each person are inherited and their sense of morality would always be in their core, as per McConaughey.
