Matthew McConaughey's wife Camila Alves reveals the secret to a perfect marriage!
Camila Alves has been married to Matthew McConaughey for almost a decade and they share three kids together
Brazilian-American model Camila Alves has spoken about her secret to the successful marriage to Matthew McConaughey. Alves and McConaughey have been married for almost a decade and share three children together. The 39-year-old told HollywoodLife that she “chose love” in marriage.
Alves said: “I wish I had a simple, short answer! Relationships are work, but I choose love. I was actually thinking about it this morning, because you can go through a lot of things in a relationship, you can go through a lot of ups and downs, no relationship is perfect. It’s work.”
She added, “But when you’re doing the work, what do you choose? That’s the question that it’s really important for people to ask when you’re working in your relationship, what do you choose? And for me, I choose love and I choose growth.” However, Alves’ positive outlook is not only for marriage, but also for body image.
The model shared a throwback bikini photo of her on her Instagram account, where she insisted on “LOVE YOURSELF”. Alves, who is the founder of Women of Today — an online community — wrote: “Hun…. Tricked You! Just a early #tbt hope you are having a beautiful summer and NO my body doesn’t look like this now. just a friendly reminder to LOVE YOURSELF in any stage you are in not easy when you are not at your ideal place but remember loving yourself it is the MOST important thing and that will ignite any changes you may be looking for!”
She continued to tell her 847K followers: “And trust me even if you are at your ideal place it is always changes for better health and spiritually. The journey never ends! We are all in it so BE KIND and DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS we are all unique creatures!”
This comes months after Alves’ actor husband fuelled speculations that he’s trying to run for Texas governor. In a video message posted on Twitter on 4th of July, the 51-year-old ‘Interstellar’ star said, “Happy Birthday, America. Yes, indeed. As we celebrate our independence today, as we celebrate our birth as a nation, the day that kick-started a revolution to gain our sovereignty, let’s admit that this last year, this trip around the sun, was also another head-scratcher.”

He went on to say, “We’re constantly in motion, we’re on the way, trying to get wiser, trying to get braver, trying to dream more, trying to do more, trying to be more fair, take the right kind of responsibilities, to gain the right kind of freedoms, and we gotta keep realizing that we’re a place where our individual pursuits and desires need to be appreciative and supportive of our collective responsibilities as Americans,” before adding, “hence, the United States of America. Sure, we’re each unique. We’re each independent. We each have innate abilities that others don’t have, as people and as states. But at the same time, we are all in this together, and if you don’t purchase that, move on. Go somewhere else.”
