Anne Hathaway Recalls The Embarrassing Way She And Matthew McConaughey Became Friends

Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey are friends now thanks to an embarrassing case of bad timing.

At a recent tribute to McConaughey, Hathaway recalled the start of their friendship together. She and husband Adam Shulman came to his house for a party, where Matthew greeted them with a smile and some bad news.

“Matthew goes, ‘Yeah, you gotta come in,'” Hathaway recalled. “Matthew turns around, again (with) a smile and goes, ‘The party was last night.'”

But the famously laid-back McConaughey wouldn’t be bothered by the case of mistaken timing, and invited Anne Hathaway and her husband inside for a drink.

“That glass of wine lead to the first bottle. I stopped counting after four and then I went with you to someone’s surprise birthday party that night… You were so good to me and Adam,” Hathaway said.

Hathaway and McConaughey would go on to work together on the movie Interstellar, where she said his personality — and his acting prowess — shined through.

“I don’t know what to expect, but I meet you and you are present,” Hathaway said. “You seem so cool and you seem so sincere and I walk away and I think, Wow, that guy’s just amazing.”

Some of McConaughey’s laid back attitude may have rubbed off on Anne Hathaway. The actress, once viewed as a bit high strung, has now decided to pose topless in the November 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

In an interview in the magazine, Hathaway said she is learning to let negative feelings go.

“For a long time I was afraid of the harsh things people would say about me, but I might as well be happy,” she said.

Anne Hathaway had more good things to say about Matthew McConaughey in the interview, saying he is “the most daring man” she knows primarily because “he never judged himself along the way and it’s all come together for him.”
