Matthew McConaughey: Sentimental? Nah

Matthew McConaughey's pretty busy with his film career - there's this weekend's "Mud," and the upcoming "Dallas Buyers Club" - but maybe he could moonlight as a relationship counselor.

The actor, who married Camila Alves last summer, told CNN that he's seen a lot of relationships fail for one specific reason.

"I think there's a way that you make [love] work, and I think a lot of people fail at it because they continually are expecting maybe something the other person can't even give you," McConaughey said. "It's too much to put that pressure on the other person. I think I've seen a lot of relationships fail because each person had the other on such a pedestal that the person couldn't live up to it, and that sort of detonated the relationship."

When it comes to the 43-year-old's own definition of love, though, it's less about sentimental gestures as much as it is embracing it head-on.

"I'm more of the let's charge on with it, let's go boldly into the unknown with it," he said. "I still like to leave as much wonder to it as possible, and let it be free and go where it goes. But at the same time, I'm a very practical guy. I know what works for me. I'm not a very sentimental person. I have a fair amount of compassion, but not sentimentality."

    Matt's suit makes the Kardashians clothing look tasteful and demure! Somewhere there's a pizza joint missing a tablecloth!

    I have to agree. That is a horrible picture of him. Must have been taken after he lost all that weight for that movie he did. Time to bulk back up, Matthew. It's not a good look for you.

    McConaughey will never top his iconic role in the film Dazed and Confused, IMHO.
