- In high school, Matthew was voted most handsome pupil. We can totally see why.
- He has a degree in Radio, Television and Film from the University of Texas at Austin.
- After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Matthew busied himself rescuing various stranded animals.
- He was once found by the police out and about playing bongo drums whilst naked.
- Matthew likes showing the soles of his feet
Like many actors Matthew began his career in adverts, but by 2001 he had graduated into movies, and found his true calling in romantic comedies.
The Wedding Planner and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days were both successful at the box office, as was Failure to Launch, in which he starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker.
Going against the grain, Matthew has been moving away from his RomCom stereotype, and the 2011 film The Lincoln Lawyer in which he portrays, surprise surprise, a lawyer, received distinctly average reviews.
Happily for us, Matthew has most recently starred alongside the gorgeous Channing Tatum in the 2012 film Magic Mike, in which he is shirtless for the entire film. The rest of the plot was difficult to follow.
He has been married to his wife, Brazilian model Camilla Alves since June 2012. They have two children together; Levi, 4, and Vida, 2, and are expecting their third child next year.
