Matthew McConaughey won an Oscar for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, which pushed the boundaries of dramatic film storylines. Ahead of this, he had mainly been known for cheesy rom-coms, where he would spent most of the film without a shirt on. He went through the McConaissance and became the actor we know and love today – but what films was he in with Kate Hudson?
Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson have been in a number of movies together.
Their on-screen chemistry has lit up the screen and impressed both fans and movie executives, who have put them together more than once.
The first film which starred them both was How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, released in 2003.
In the movie, Kate plays a journalist writing a story on how to make a man break up with you, while Matthew is a fellow journalist who friends bet him he cannot make a woman fall in love with him.
While he is willing to put up with her shenanigans, and she is desperate to rid herself of him, they soon fall for each other.
After this, they starred together in Fool’s Gold in 2008, an adventure rom-com about buried treasure.
In the film, Matthew’s character is a treasure hunter while his wife, played by Kate, is sick of his antics and trying to raise enough money to divorce him.
However, a major treasure hunt leads them to fall back in love and face adversaries together.
Speaking of their time working together, Kate has revealed one of the issues she found working with Matthew: his ‘snotty’ kisses.
She told Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop podcast: “Every time I kiss McConaughey, I mean, it’s like there’s just something happening and there’s like snot or wind.
“When we were kissing, in the end of Fool’s Gold, we’re in the ocean, we had the plane crash, he just had snot all over his face.”
Matthew has come back and defended himself about this point, telling Yahoo Entertainment: “In Fool’s Gold, here’s the scene: You’re in the middle of the ocean. You go under the water and then come up out of the water like you’re gasping for air.
“You’re glad to be alive! Then you look at each other and you swim to each other and go into an embrace.”
“There’s a lot of salt water and snot and all kinds of stuff that are in between all those, and so you’re doing that and you’re like, ‘OK, I think that worked, but did that look any good?’
“They’re like, ‘No, we better do another take.’”
As far as Matthew sees it, he and Kate are due another reunion to get a “romantic” kiss, given they have either been interrupted by waves or trying to repel one another in their movies so far.
He added: “We never got to have our nice romantic kiss yet.
“There’s still time. So many of Kate and I’s kisses have been awkward.
“We’re still like, ‘Hey, can we ever get a kiss where it’s just like the temperature’s right, and nobody’s interrupting, and the ocean’s not wiping us away, nobody’s dropping stuff on us above our head?’”
Early adopters of McConaughey will likely be hoping this reunion comes, though after his incredible rise in the dramatic world, it may be this will be just a dream.
