Matthew McConaughey told GQ's Brett Martin that his marriage to wife Camila came about because "I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn't want it to be a destination; the fun is that we're on the adventure together."
But it was her way with words that sealed the deal. McConaughey continued, "And look, some of it had to do with her putting it on me. It took her going, 'C'mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We'll-Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either shit or get off the pot.'" No doubt that wife Camila Alves' actual words have been put through the McConaughey-English-language-translator for better or
for worse for the best.
