Matthew McConaughey’s wife sneaked onto Magic Mike set

Matthew Mcconaughey had a surprise visitor while shooting Magic Mike – his wife Camila Alves sneaked onto the set to watch his stripping scenes.

Brazilian beauty Alves, who McConaughey married last month (Jun12), was secretly looking on as the Texan hunk peeled off his clothes and paraded around onstage in skimpy underwear to play strip club owner Dallas in the hit movie.

McConaughey admits it was for the best he was unaware of Alves’ presence as he was terrified about performing his raunchy dance routine.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, “I didn’t know she was there. She had sneaked in at the back and I’m glad I didn’t know because I would have been even more nervous than I was. But I got it done and she enjoyed it. She gave me the thumbs-up.

“It was nerve-racking to dance in front of everyone live. Then having to strip down was even more nerve-racking. The biggest challenge wasn’t the dancing, it was the tiny thong. It’s a huge leap of faith to trust a thong and it’s your only protection up on stage. When I first tried it on, I was trying to get myself into every position possible to see if enough of me was covered.”
