Matthew McConaughey tells Kyle and Jackie O why ALL his female co-stars think he smells nice – and the secret behind his irresistible scent


Matthew McConaughey has been paired with dozens of female love interests during his long career in romantic comedy movies.

And radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson told the hunky actor that ‘all the leading ladies always say how great you smell’ during an interview with the 52-year-old on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday.

And the Ghosts of Girlfriends Past star admitted he manufactured his own unique ‘concoctions’ to create his signature scent.

‘You knew I was a mixologist!’ exclaimed the Oscar winner of his decision to avoid off-the-shelf aftershaves and scents.

When pressed for his secret recipe, Matthew said he ‘couldn’t dare say that out loud’.

Then when Jackie and co-host Kyle Sandilands pushed him for an answer, the interview was abruptly cut short by a publicist.

‘We were [about to get] the eleven herbs and spices recipe!’ despaired Kyle, before letting the Hollywood star go.

The lighthearted interviews comes after McConaughey revealed how an exchange trip in rural Australia in his late teens shaped him as a person and led to him winning an Oscar.

The American actor was stripped of all the ‘crutches’ he had growing up in Texas after moving to Warnervale, a small town on the central coast of NSW, in 1988.

He explained in his new memoir, Greenlights, how he had no friends in Australia and found himself working six jobs.

Matthew described his gap year as ‘tread[ing] water until I crossed the finish line’.

‘I begun to realise how valuable and enduring that year in Australia was for me, how I wouldn’t be the man I am today, unless I had taken that year,’ Matthew wrote.

‘How I wouldn’t have learnt the lessons if I would’ve come home early.’

He contrasted his tough experience in Australia with his charmed life back home in Texas, where everything seemed to come so easily to him.

For example, he was voted ‘most handsome’ in school, was a straight-A student and even dated the ‘best-looking girl at school’.

It comes after Matthew ended months of speculation by announcing he was not running for governor of Texas, insisting his time and energy was better spent elsewhere.

The Oscar-winning actor posted a video to Twitter on Sunday evening saying he was honoured to be even considered.

‘As a simple kid born in the town of Uvalde, Texas, it never occurred to me that I would one day be considered for political leadership,’ he said.

Lessons learned: 'I begun to realise how valuable and enduring that year in Australia was for me, how I wouldn't be the man I am today, unless I had taken that year,' Matthew said

‘It’s a humbling and inspiring path to ponder. It is also a path that I am choosing not to take at this moment.’

McConaughey never stated whether he would run as a Democrat, Republican or independent, and instead described his politics as ‘aggressively centrist’.

Neither had he outlined any policy priorities, although he is know for his activism on the environment and young people.
