Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves’ Years-Long Romantic Relationship Started with One-Sided Love

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves make a beautiful couple, and fans cannot stop drooling over these two. They are one of Hollywood’s happiest couples, and their love story is no less than a fairytale.

It is known to all his fans that Matthew McConaughey was not looking for love and was happily single until he met his now-wife, Camila Alves, some 14 years ago.

It all started with Mathew crushing over Camila, while she didn’t even recognize him at that time. The Brazilian model didn’t know he was a movie star while he was all smitten with her, and he had to make genuine efforts in order to gain her attention and eventually prove his worth.

It all started in 2006 when they first met in LA. He went out to a club with his friend in Los Angeles. While he was making margaritas at the table when suddenly he caught sight of Camila, who was 24 at that time and came to the US from Brazil. He said he was instantly intrigued.

While talking to Oprah Winfrey in one of his interviews, he described his first impression of her in a very cinematic way:

“Out of the corner of my eye, this aqua-green figure went sort of floating across the frame about 20 feet in front of me. I didn’t say, ‘Who is that.’ I said, ‘What is that?”

Alves, on the other hand, doesn’t remember it as love at first sight. While speaking with Access Hollywood in 2012, the actress said that she did not know who he was at that time. “He had a really long beard, and he had this rasta hat. He was all covered up, and initially, I didn’t realize who he really was.”

She said she eventually did recognize him, but she was clearly not star-struck by him. So, she decided to keep it cool and conversed in her native language, Portuguese. “I thought I’ve had put him to test,” she said, ‘’But he didn’t chafe and responded in both Portuguese and Spanish”

While talking to People Entertainment, Mathew said, “We had a great connection. I spoke better Spanish and Portuguese that night than I have since we started going out (you know what I mean?),” he joked. Three days after our first encounter, I invited her to my Malibu house and cooked her dinner, which we ate on the porch.” 

Mathew said that the next time after that, he wanted to go on “another date” with her. “And another, and another…. and I’ve been wanting to go on a date with her for the last nine years.”

Recalling what made him feel so certain about her, he said that it was the self-respect she had for herself that he admired, her relationship with her family. Also, the way she respected him. He said, “She never took anything for granted.”

They bonded well with each other, and with time their attraction grew even stronger, and it eventually gave way to a lifelong connection. The couple got married in 2012 and has three children together, two boys and one girl. Together they make one big happy family, and their fans can see them posing together at splashy Hollywood events like Oscars, SAG awards, and movie premiers.

Their love story proves that time indeed plays a very crucial role in one’s relationship and that one should not be hasty in finding a love match in life. And when you find that certain someone you feel so sure about, be true to yourself.
