Despite their busy family life, Matthew says Camilla is always encouraging him to do his best when it comes to work.

He told Details magazine: 'I've got a wife who challenges me. There were two movies I wanted to do last year, but they were back-to-back with no separation. 

'She was like, "You want to do it - buck up, grab your nuts, and make it happen. We'll be there with you." Papa goes to work, the circus goes with him...'

On an episode of Apple TV+'s The Oprah Conversation last year, the actor recalled 'immediately' wanting to take the Brazilian-American model out on a date.  

As the star promoted his new memoir, Greenlights, he fondly admitted to being mesmerized by the beauty, who he met in 2006 when she was 24 and he was 37.

'I didn't say, 'Who is that.' I said, 'What is that,' McConaughey confessed to the talk show host.
