Matthew McConaughey jetted off to Rome last Friday to shoot a commercial, and while he was there, he met up with his mom Mary Kathlene McCabe, who was already in Europe. Talk about good timing!

Before the two flew back on Tuesday, Matty and his ma dined at Antica Pesa on Monday, and they stayed until 1am! “They looked adorable. His love for his mom was evident, and he treated her like a queen,” a source told Page Six. “You can tell he is such a southern gentleman, and they looked happy to be spending time together.”

Awww! Not only do we love the roles the Oscar winner has chosen lately, but his devotion to his family makes him one of our fav celebs in Hollywood.

Matthew McConaughey Takes His Oscar-Winning Smile To The Dentist

Celebs are just like the rest of us!

Except Matthew McConaughey's dentist is in a ritzy part of Beverly Hills and we're going to go ahead and guess that 80% of the stars in Hollywood have veneers. Anyway...

Matty went to get some dental work done on Wednesday, and he spent a whopping three hours at his appointment. While that doesn't sound like fun, we're guessing the 44-year-old actor is still on cloud nine after winning the Oscar for Best Actor on Sunday. Though there were reports that Matty told The Sun he wouldn't spend much time at the after parties because he wanted to "go home and make another baby" with wife Camila Alves, his rep told E! News the actor never said those words. Still ... we can't help but wonder if that story has some element of truth to it...




Matthew McConaughey And Wife Camila Alves Wow At The 2014 Academy Awards

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves struck a pose on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards, and the 44-year-old actor looked dapper in a D&G suit while his gorgeous wife wowed in a pastel Gabriela Cadena gown.

As you know, Matthew is nominated for Best Actor for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, and he'll be competing against Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Bruce Dern and Chiwetel Ejiofor for the prize.

Last week Matty appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and he was very humble about his chances of winning. Jimmy joked, "We gotta prepare you to win an Academy Award because you know you're going to win, right?" Matty shook his head, and when Jimmy brought it up again, Matty noted that losing 40 pounds wasn't just to look like the character he was playing, but to understand him. "Doing that for five months put me in a place where I was able to study and surround myself with everything Ron Woodruff, everything about HIV and AIDs at that time -- it was perfect tool -- I didn't even know it would be until I was doing it," he said.

If he does beat Leo, we can't wait to hear his speech! The one he gave at the Golden Globes earlier this year was pretty epic...

Life couldn't be more perfect for him these days!

Matthew McConaughey relaxed on the beach with wife Camila and their children Levi, Vida, and Livingston in Malibu over the weekend, and the actor seemed laid back and carefree despite the biggest night of his career being just weeks away!

The Dallas Buyers Club star is nominated for Best Actor at this year's Academy Awards, which air March 2, and we have a feeling he might be taking home the award!

Not only is he garnering attention for his film roles, he's also taking the small screen by storm with his new show True Detective.

"They sent me all eight episodes a couple months ago and I started to watch them and I said, 'No, I want to do what everyone else does: I want to watch one a week and then sit on it a week. I go back and watch it two, three times and I'm seeing something different every time and I made it!" he recently confessed on the Queen Latifah Show.

This Texas hunk has a lot to smile about!




Matthew McConaughey Prepares His Oscar Speech On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Feb 20, 2014 08:40 AM


Considering all the crazy film and TV roles he's had over the past year, it is a bit of a surprise to see Matthew McConaughey (mostly) clean-shaven and wearing a suit!

On Wednesday the actor made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his latest projects (he blew us away in Dallas Buyers Club and he's continuing to do so in HBO's amazing series True Detective), and of course Jimmy brought up the Oscars, which are right around the corner.

Jimmy joked, "We gotta prepare you to win an Academy Award because you know you're going to win, right?" Matty shook his head, but after a brief discussion about True Detective, Jimmy went for it again. "I feel as though you deserve to win the Academy Award, not just because of your performance but also, you starved yourself almost to death ... I feel like just based on that alone you should get it."

The 44-year-old actor laughed and said no, and he added that losing 40 pounds wasn't just to look like the character he was playing, but to understand him. "Doing that for five months put me in a place where I was able to study and surround myself with everything Ron Woodruff, everything about HIV and AIDs at that time -- it was perfect tool -- I didn't even know it would be until I was doing it."

Still, Jimmy wasn't willing to give up about the star taking home the prize for Best Actor, and he asked how the father of three was planning on topping his Golden Globes acceptance speech. "I feel like you wasted your A material on the Golden Globes, and you should've saved it for the Oscars," Jimmy exclaimed. "You have a lot to live up to!" So what does Matty have in mind?

Celebs Celebrate At The Oscar Nominees Luncheon

Matthew McConaughey  Camila Alves Academy Awards luncheon Academy Awards luncheon Sandra Bullock

The 86th Academy Awards nominees luncheon was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday afternoon, and some of Hollywood's biggest names came out for the annual soiree.

Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock were among the famous ladies at the bash, and gents included Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke and Jonah Hill. Jennifer Lawrence was noticeably absent (as was Julia Roberts, though she likely cancelled her appearance due to the sudden death of her half-sister Nancy), and though Leonardo DiCaprio was there, he managed to sneak past our photogs but we did get a quick video of him. Typical ... but he really is making the rounds this season, so maybe this will finally be his year?

"Please, get to the stage quickly—really quickly," Oscars co-producer Craig Zadan instructed the nominees. Winners will be given 45 seconds to to speak, and Zadan suggested that stars skip reading "from a list written on a piece of paper" and instead give a speech that is "personal, funny and heartfelt." Easier said than done...

And we're not just saying this because we want him to win for Dallas Buyers Club, but Jared Leto (and his unbuttoned shirt) pretty much made our day:

Matthew McConaughey And Wife Camila Work The Red Carpet In Rome

A leading man and his lady!

Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves got all dolled up to walk the red carpet for the Dallas Buyers Club premiere in Rome yesterday, and the pair showcased why they are considered one of the hottest couples in Hollywood!

The A-list actor is nominated for an Oscar for his role in the film, and we have a feeling this might be his year to bring home a golden statue!

The hunky Texan recently revealed that his character's real-life journals helped him understand how to accurately portray the AIDS patient.

"They gave me what was my secret weapon, which was his diary. Which was the diary before he had HIV, and that's where I understood who the man was before this disease came on — which ironically gave him the first purpose and clear identity of something to fight for in his life. … He wanted to get out. I don't know where he wanted to go, but he was lost and wandering and was pretty lonely. And the ironic, sad thing is that this disease is actually what gave him something clear to fight and claw for 24-7," he explained.

We're rooting for him to win!

Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves jetted back in to Los Angeles on Tuesday night, and the duo looked ready to get back home to their three beautiful children -- and catch up on some sleep!

While Matty has had a very busy year (between filming and promoting The Wolf of Wall Street and Dallas Buyers Club, we don't know how he had the time to shoot HBO's True Detective!), he expressed how thankful he is for his family over the weekend at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala on Saturday when he accepted the 2014 Achievement Award for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

"I'd like to thank my own family, who was incredibly encouraging at 5 a.m. out the door in the morning in the dark," he said to the audience. "And you were incredibly encouraging coming home at 8 p.m. each night. I know I wasn't that easy to live with at that time. You never let me know that, I appreciate it."

Awww!
