Mar InStyle notes, quoting information from McConaughey’s biography – Matthew McConaughey: Biography – an Dallas Buyers Club a star knew he had to talk to Alves as soon as he saw her.

McConaughey first saw Alves at the Hyde Lounge in West Hollywood. And, after meeting her, he didn’t date anyone else. Some rumors suggest that McConaughey was still with Penelope Cruz when he first met Alves.

After a couple of previous relationships with actors and other celebrities, McConaughey knew that Alves was the one (almost immediately).

McConaughey said a few words to himself before walking over to Alves, in immediate response to his attraction and surprise:

My eye went up and I remember what came out of my mouth. I didn’t say ‘Who’s that?’ I went, ‘What’s that?

InStyle notes that it is important to take McConaughey ‘s statement with a grain of salt, as evidence suggests that their romance began later or surpassed his ongoing relationship with Cruz. Although he says he was “happily single” at the time, it’s hard for both to be true. Did the relationship form a little after that, or was it still with Cruz (somehow)?
