Matthew McConaughey beams with pride as his daughter Vida, 10, joins him during video interview and helps him answer a question
Matthew McConaughey’s daughter Vida is keeping her dad in check.
The 10-year-old daughter of McConaughey and wife Camila Alves joined her father for an interview on the Why Not Now? podcast with Amy Jo Martin, in which she was asked to help her dad out with a little lesson.
When Martin asked the Dazed And Confused actor, ‘What’s one lesson you find yourself learning over and over?’, he enlisted the help of Vida who said his biggest learning lesson had to do with trust.

He initially responds to the questions, ‘We learn lessons – we know they’re right, we know they’re true, [but] activating them and having them instinctively become a habit is a different thing.’
McConaughey then directs his attention off camera while thinking to himself and asks, ‘What’s one lesson I have to keep on learning over and over?’ while motioning for Vida to come into frame.
Further breaking down the question he asks her, ‘What do I keep repeatedly having [to be] like, “Ah, I have to learn that one again?” ‘ he asked, which prompted an adorably honest answer from his only daughter.

Trust issues: ‘A lot of times you’ll correct us and then you’ll come back and you explain why you corrected us…But usually, we’re just like…we got it the first time,’ she says
Quick to respond she said: ‘Trusting – I guess, when you correct us. A lot of times you’ll correct us and then you’ll come back and you explain why you corrected us…,’ as she refers to brothers Levi, 12, and Livingston, eight.
She continues, ‘…But usually, we’re just like…we got it the first time,’ which prompted an outburst of laughter from McConaughey as he marveled at his daughter’s innate intuition.
He totally agrees with her response as he looks at the camera and says ‘Yeah,’ seeming to be very humbled by the answer.
In wonder: The Dazed And Confused actor marveled at Vida’s very in-tune answer after asking her to help him with one of his flaws which prompted an outburst of laughter on his end
This is not the first time Matthew has enlisted Vida’s help for something.
Last week wife Camila shared a photo of she and brother Levi playing the part of personal photographer, as they helped him snap a portrait for a magazine cover due to quarantine restrictions.
Additionally she has joined Alves on camera and flexed her Spanish skills as they read a book together for PBS.
With her parent’s good looks and a clear comfort in front of the camera, Vida may be one to watch.
