Beach Babe Matthew McConaughey Opens Up About Life, Love – and How He Maintains that Smokin' Bod
1 HOT GUY ANSWERS 5 BURNING QUESTIONS
At 37, Matthew McConaughey says he only needs "friends and family" to keep him happy and that he avoids "false drama" at all costs. Now the actor opens up about his bachelor pad on wheels and the qualities he looks for in a woman.
1 Why don't you ever wear a shirt?
"I love warm weather and summertime. What better way to enjoy it than at the beach, where few people wear shirts?"
2 Do you really live in that RV?
"Yes, the Airstream is my home and I have two more being designed."
3 What does it take to be your girlfriend?
"What I look for in a woman is what I love to call the 'two Hs'—hotness and humor. But to be honest, a woman with a good sense of humor is always hot."
4 How do you maintain that bod?
"I don't really have a workout regimen I follow. I just live my life. My goal is to break a sweat each day."
5 Is there anything that will get you off the beach?

WHAT KIND OF GUY IS MATTHEW?
"He's comfortable to be with. He's got this kind of expression on his face like he's got a secret and he just dangles it in front of you for eternity until he tells you, so that's sexy. He's a family person. He's down-to-earth."
WAS HE A LADIES' MAN IN HIGH SCHOOL?
"He just did his thing, played tennis and golf, hung out with the guys a lot. I can't imagine him playing up to the girls, but I'm telling you, those girls liked his butt."
WHAT ABOUT HIS FITNESS OBSESSION?
"He likes the way exercising feels. To feel good about your body and mind, it's just a way of life for him. A lot of good things happen to him because he's in shape."
IS MARRIAGE IN HIS FUTURE?
"I hope he'll settle down, but I don't hold my breath. His life is so full now that when that happens, I think he wants to do it right."
WHAT KIND OF DAD WILL HE BE?
"I think he'd be strict but very fair. He would be hands-on; I don't care whether it's a boy or girl. Strict, no foolishness: 'I'm only going to tell you once!'"
AND HIS GREATEST ASSET?
"His integrity. You just feel like he really cares. When he gives you his time, he gives it to you. And he's honest. What you see is what you get, trust me. Besides that, he's good-looking. He's got a great smile, doesn't he? And he's never had braces! Isn't that a heck of a deal?"
