At last night’s star-studded American Cinematheque tribute to McConaughey, Hathaway said she became friends with Matthew McConaughey while filming the upcoming Interstellar. McConaughey invited Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman to his house for a party…
“I have a story and it’s kind of embarrassing. My husband and I drive up. It’s a Sunday. It’s a beautiful day. There are no cars around and we thought, ‘OK, we’re on time. We’re on time for once.’ And you greet us at the door with a big smile on your face – ‘Matthew goes, Yeah, you gotta come in.’ Matthew turns around, again [with] a smile and goes, ‘The party was last night!'” (But McConaughey told the couple to stay and have a glass of wine.) “That glass of wine lead to the first bottle. I stopped counting after four and then I went with you (referring toMcConaughey) to someone’s surprise birthday party that night… you were so good to me and Adam.”
Bad enough showing up to someone’s house you don’t know, add the movie star factor for extra embarrassment. The photo above and below is from my former Us Weekly colleague, E!’s Marc Malkin who related the story. The tribute brought out more McConaughey lovers. See below. Hollywood LOVES to love itself.
