With is laid-back attitude and easy-going demeanor - as well as his affinity for going shirtless - Matthew McConaughey is one of Hollywood's sexiest and in-demand actors. Born on November 4, 1969 in the small town of Uvalde, Texas, Matthew began his acting career in 1991, appearing on local commercials and in student films. He got his big break as high-school girl loving 'David Wooderson' in Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused in 1993. He went on to roles in Boys on the Side and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation with Renee Zellweger before winning a starring role in the 1996 film of the John Grisham novel A Time to Kill. After his breakthrough role, Matthew kept busy throughout the late 1990s in films such as Contact, Amistad and U-571. Matthew's easy-going ways got the better of him in October of 1999, when he was arrested after being found in his Austin, Texas home naked and playing the bongo drums. He was found guilty of violating the city's noise ordinance and paid a $50 fine and was the subject of jokes for years to come. Matthew found his niche as a romantic leading man with The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days with Kate Hudson. He has also played a gambling protege of Al Pacino's in Two for the Money and a serial killer in Frailty. Matthew, dubbed 'Sexiest Man Alive' in 2006 by People magazine, is soon to be the 'Sexiest Dad Alive', expecting a baby in June of 2008 with girlfriend Camila Alves. With a baby on the way, and a variety of film projects on the horizon, we keep getting older, but Matthew stays just as talented.
