Road King McConaughey Missing
Matthew McConaughey was a one-man promotional road
show this weekend, as the "Sahara" star wheeled
into Beverly Hills in style.
Mathew and his buddy had a wild idea to promote the
action adventure flick: spend 31 days and 6,000 miles
in the star's personalized Air Stream trailer, complete
with an American flag and Texas plates.
"I was going to take a trip anyway and [my friend]
was like, 'What if you make a 'Sahara' campaign out
of it,' and I was like, 'That is a genius idea.'"
And while Matthew's girlfriend and "Sahara"
co-star, PenČlope Cruz wasn't along on this ride, she
was definitely on his mind. "I think she likes
the trailer, man, but she was busy. I haven't seen her
in a while; I'm looking forward to seeing her today."
It didn't take long for the love birds to re-unite.
"Extra" got pictures of their reunion that
began with a Texas-style barbeque outside the trailer.
Meanwhile, Matthew shared with us some of his interesting
road stories. "We pulled the Air Stream through
Times Square," McConaughey recalled. "That
was a nice buzz. And we gave a ride to a guy for about
100 miles who was hitchhiking. He was cool."
Matthew may like limos and five-star hotels, but what
really makes the simple star happy is when he's on the
road. "I prefer to drive," he said.
McConaughey and his ladylove hit theaters in "Sahara"
on April 8th.
