Matthew McConaughey stepped out on the red carpet looking mighty spiffy.

McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves attended the Sunday premiere of his new film Sing 2. The event took place in Los Angeles, California at the Greek Theatre. McConaughey had a tan suit with a black shirt and slicked back hair. Meanwhile, Alves stunned in a beige gown with numerous tiers.

The couple has been married for over nine years. The pair share three children together: son Levi, 13, daughter Vida, 11, and son Livingston, eight.

Matthew McConaughey‘s latest role is off-screen as the voice of the animated character Buster. The second film in the franchise follows Buster after he helped the New Moon Theater become a local sensation. Now that he has that on his resume, he plans on debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in the glamorous Redshore City.

The star-studded cast also includes Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll, Bobby Cannavale, Halsey, Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric André, Chelsea Peretti, and Bono.

How Matthew McConaughey Helped Get Bono

In the new movie, Bono portrays the character of the reclusive rock star Clay Calloway. It might come as a shock to some that he would agree to star in an animated film and compose a song, but it was all part of the plan.

“We pulled a legend in the music rock and roll world to come with us and play on our team on this film. It was a coup to get him,” Matthew McConaughey told Variety per the Independent.

“Getting him for the movie was very much like getting Clay Calloway, the character he plays in the movie; it’s a coup to get him as if they show is to succeed, we need him on stage,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bono appeared at the premiere alongside fellow U2 member Edge. The pair co-wrote the song “Your Song Saved My Life” specifically for the film. Cast member Nick Kroll said that it was awesome to work alongside such a rock legend. But for Kroll it was “terrible” to sing Bono and Edge’s song in the film. Kroll hated that the duo “has to hear me destroy it.”

Bono said that director Garth Jennings was brilliant for coming up with the concept of the family movie. It was a no brainer that he would join the cast of a musical movie that was fit for all ages.

“He’s kind of like a fictional character himself. He’s got a very brilliant brain; wrote the film, directed it, and can do all the voices. But he stays kind of like a child and I think that is key to his creativity,” Bono said.

Sing 2 premieres in theaters on December 22.
