Perhaps it is time to stop asking celebrities about their hygiene routines. The latest to reveal their cleanliness was Matthew McConaughey. With a little digging back to 2008 and a little interview in Playboy, a dirty little secret has resurfaced. While filming Fool’s Gold, the Oscar winner apparently had a bit of a scent his co-star didn’t appreciate.

Kate Hudson starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in Fool’s Gold. During that interview with Playboy, the actor said, “She [Hudson] always brings a salt rock, which is some natural deodorant, and says, ‘Would you please put this on?’ I just never wore it. No cologne, no deodorant.” In fact, he insists this is what his mother and other women prefer.

“The women in my life, including my mother, have all said, ‘Hey, your natural smell smells, one, like a man, and, two, smells like you,” McConaughey explained in the interview. Apparently, Kate Hudson wasn’t appreciating the natural odor. However, it isn’t all bad news for McConaughey lovers.

During the Playboy interview, Matthew McConaughey insisted that he takes his cleanliness seriously. Although he doesn’t use deodorant, he says he takes multiple showers and brushes his teeth up to five times a day. He may have a real argument though, at least if you ask Yvette Nicole Brown.

After starring in Tropic Thunder together, she got close to him to see if he really didn’t have an odor. In a SiriusXM interview recently Brown said, “He does not have an odor. He smells like granola and good living. He has a sweet, sweet scent.” Perhaps it’s working for McConaughey after all.

Matthew McConaughey The Texas Man

Those that follow Matthew McConaughey know he is a Texas man through and through. He has given speeches in the locker room and at practice to the Longhorns football team and always reps Texas any chance he can get. Recently he had cause for celebration in regards to his Texas fandom. With various athletes from the state and university competing in the Tokyo Olympics, the actor made sure to give thanks and credit to their accomplishments.

Then there is the Texas move to the Southeastern Conference. While the news shook many fans from the already existing conference as well as Longhorns fans. For McConaughey, it was nothing but good news. He Tweeted how ‘excited he was to see his beloved school join the new conference.

There is no doubt that his love for Texas runs deep as fans will often see him on the sidelines at football games and other events. However, fans won’t smell him at games. Matthew McConaughey would be someone who just exudes comforting scents. As long as he keeps hitting those showers and brushing his teeth, we can let this one slide. Now, please stop asking celebrities what their routines are, can the world really take any more unfortunate admissions?
