Matthew McConaughey on Being Faithful to Camila Alves

Matthew McConaughey on Wife Camila Alves: "I Like Being Under Her Spell"

We bet Camila Alves just read husband Matthew McConaughey's interview in Playboy magazine and loudly went: "Awww!" The actor opened up about his relationship with the Brazilian lifestyle expert and co-founder of Yummy Spoonfuls, describing the moment he first saw her at a bar and immediately knew she was like no one he had ever dated before.

Matthew, who now has three kids with Camila and recently revealed to Esquire that she didn't say yes to his marriage proposal right away, said: "I have been very faithful with my wife, very selfishly. I like being under her spell. I don't want to break that spell." Scroll ahead for his full account of their relationship.

"I had a time in my life when I was fine going from here to there, bam-bam-bam — healthy, fluent, single years. I had a pretty good spidey sense and got out of it without sleeping with any witches who, if I got up to take a shower, I'd be concerned they'd look through my phone or wallet — women who weren't good enough to get away with their moves because I'd be catching them out of the corner of my eye. When I saw the woman who is now my wife, I was at a club making margaritas at my table with friends. When she walked in wearing this aqua dress, I went, 'Whoa, what is that?' I didn't say, 'Who is that?' Grace, identity, constitution, beauty — where's that from? What is that? As soon as she caught my eye, a little voice goes in my head: 'This is not the kind of woman you call across the room. Boy, get your ass out of that chair.' That was a big moment. The second big moment was the morning after that night. I got her to stay in the guest bedroom of my house. She kicked me out twice when I snuck down there. I came down the stairs about 10:15 a.m., and there she was in that aqua dress, holding court, laughing and talking with my hungover, shirtless guy friends we were out with the night before, while our housekeeper dished out pancakes and eggs. From there, I drove her an hour and 10 minutes to pick up her car and never once did I feel the need to inject conversation. You can't dial up that kind of woman. I have been very faithful with my wife, very selfishly. I like being under her spell. I don't want to break that spell."
