McConaughey delighted with wedding

Matthew McConaughey has said his three-day wedding extravaganza was his wife's idea.

The Magic Mike star tied the knot with Brazilian model Camila Alves last month at their home in Texas.

He told ITV1's Lorraine: "We had 117 people that were good friends and family. It was Camilla's idea, she said 'Look, I really want to get everyone here and build a village, and have everyone here for 72 hours, three full days, where they never leave.'

"So Friday night they have their own stories that they've come together, Saturday night's about us and the ceremony, and Sunday night was about celebrating the ritual that we just all witnessed, and it couldn't have gone better."

Matthew also told the show he couldn't have been more embarrassed when his wife, who is expecting the couple's third child, made her way onto the set without telling him to see him film his stripper role in Magic Mike.

"She snuck on set, I'm glad I didn't know she was going to be there," said the star.

"Then I saw her afterwards and my face went pretty red and I said, 'Well, what did you think?' She gave me the thumbs up."

He said of his stripper's outfit: "To put on a thong is uncomfortable, and then you have to go out there on stage and act like you've been doing it all your life."
