Boy meets girl

Interestingly, he was not even looking for love and was quite satisfied with being single. In fact, the 48-year-old actor was hanging out with his dear friend Lance Armstrong in the L.A. club when Camila walked past their table.

His reaction was priceless and would make for a great movie some day!

Perfect timing

He told PEOPLE in a recent interview that he knew right there and then that he had to go talk to her and have her sit with them. And in addition to exclaiming, "What is that!" instead of  "Who is that!", he made his move.

The timing was perfect for the couple who hit it off right away. McConaughey already had his mind set on marrying at 40, but he did not want to make a hasty, anxious decision.

He's grateful for his family

His decision to play it cool worked out for him. Choosing Camila at the time, he did was the best decision he ever made, and their marriage is blessed with 3 lovely children Levi, 9, Vida, 8, and Livingston, 5. 


McConaughey has said over and over that he would not be the man he is today without the support of Camila and the children.
