Ever since the release of 2003’s How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, I’ve been a fan of Matthew McConaughey (I’m a sucker for a rom-com!). Following the hit film, the talented actor went on to claim a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and won an Oscar, but his life behind the camera is worthy of its own screenplay. From his tumultuous family life to his rather comedic arrest for playing the bongos nude, McConaughey’s journey has been nothing short of riveting.“It’s life,” he tells me during our no-holds-barred Zoom chat about his memoir, Greenlights.“It’s a rodeo!” Candidly chatting to WHO from his Austin, Texas, home, McConaughey’s true passion shines through: being a dad to three kids with the support of his gorgeous wife, Camila Alves.

love is in the air

VANESSA & TOM A RIGHT ROYAL ROMANCE Tom Cruise is a self-confessed workaholic, so it makes sense that any love that comes into his life would come via a film set! Sparks are reportedly flying for the 58-year-old and his Mission: Impossible co-star, Vanessa Kirby, 32, who are filming the seventh instalment in London. “She’s gorgeous, and they have a tonne in common. He’s fallen hard,” a source told In Touch of the pair. “If you’re in the room with them, you can spot the connection.” Kirby – who played Princess Margaret in two seasons of The Crown – and Cruise first connected in 2017 when they were spotted locking lips in Paris. And while it turned out to be for a steamy scene in 2018’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout, it’s said…

katie holmes ready to elope?

Katie Holmes sure hasn’t wasted any time getting to know her new partner, Emilio Vitolo Jnr. Since the actress, 41, and the chef, 33, first stepped out together in September, the pair have barely left each other’s sides. PDA-ing their way through New York City, Holmes and Vitolo have been snapped holding hands, riding the subway together, wearing matching ensembles – and they haven’t been shy of a curbside kiss or two! And according to a source, their loved-up displays aren’t just for show. “Katie thinks she’s in love,” an insider told Star magazine of the normally private mum-of-one. “It’s no exaggeration to say she’s obsessed with this guy.” It’s a very different relationship to the one Holmes had with ex Jamie Foxx, 52. Shrouded in secrecy, the pair had a five-year…

matthew mcconaughey ‘life’s a rodeo’

His Southern drawl is unmistakeable. “I feel quite free,” Matthew McConaughey tells WHO during a wide-ranging Zoom chat from his home in Austin, Texas. Adding to his ever-growing résumé, McConaughey is now a first-time author, after penning his memoir, Greenlights. Referring to it as a playbook based on his adventures, there’s no topic too taboo or life experience too harsh or embarrassing that he hasn’t revisited. Having journalled since he was a teen, McConaughey finally worked up the courage to sit down with those diaries – and bought a one-way ticket to the desert to read through them in self-imposed solitary confinement for 52 days.“I thought I’d be ashamed about what I saw and what I read,” he reveals.“And the stuff I thought I’d be embarrassed about, I was still embarrassed…
