The couple first met in 2006 and became engaged in 2011 before tying the year afterwards in McConaughey’s hometown of Austin, Texas, where the two still reside.

McConaughey began his career acting in small parts in television and film before landing his breakout role in the 1993 coming-of-age comedy Dazed And Confused, where he portrayed a suave young man who still hangs out with teenagers.

He then went on to take on roles in various film projects spanning multiple genres, including the 1997 sci-fi drama Contact and the 1999 satirical comedy EDtv.

Beginning in the early 2000’s, the actor began to take on roles in predominantly romantic comedies, including The Wedding Planner and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, before changing up his image in an effort to curb his typecasting.
