Matthew McConaughey tells Kyle and Jackie O why ALL his female co-stars think he smells good — and the secret behind his irresistible scent


Matthew McConaughey has been linked to dozens of female love interests during his long career in romantic comedy films.

And radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson told the handsome actor that “all the lead actresses always say how good you smell” during an interview with the 52-year-old on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday.

And the Ghosts of Girlfriends Past star admitted to crafting his own unique “brews” to create his signature scent.

What is his secret? Matthew McConaughey’s on-screen love interests “always say how great you smell,” according to Jackie O Henderson on Thursday. Matthew pictured here with Kate Hudson in the 2008 movie Fool’s Gold

“You knew I was a mixologist!” exclaimed the Oscar winner about his decision to avoid standard aftershaves and fragrances.

When he asked for his secret recipe, Matthew said he “didn’t dare say that out loud.”

When Jackie and co-host Kyle Sandilands pressed him for an answer, the interview was cut short by a publicist.

‘We were [about to get] the recipe of eleven herbs and spices!’ Kyle despaired, before letting the Hollywood star go.

The lighthearted interviews come after McConaughey revealed how an exchange trip in rural Australia in his late teens shaped him as a person and led to him winning an Oscar.

The American actor was stripped of all the “crutches” he had growing up in Texas after moving to Warnervale, a small town on the central coast of NSW, in 1988.

He explained in his new memoir, Greenlights, how he had no friends in Australia and found himself working six jobs.

Matthew described his gap year as ‘treading'[ing] water until I crossed the finish line’.

“I started to realize how valuable and enduring that year in Australia was to me, that I wouldn’t be the man I am today unless I took that year,” Matthew wrote.

“How I wouldn’t have learned the lessons if I’d gone home early.”

He contrasted his grueling experience in Australia with his charming life back home in Texas, where everything seemed so easy to him.

He was voted ‘prettiest’ at school, was a straight A student and even dated the ‘most beautiful girl in school’.

It comes after Matthew ended months of speculation by announcing: he was not running for Texas governor and insisted that his time and energy were better spent elsewhere.

The Oscar-winning actor posted a video to Twitter Sunday night in which he said he was honored to even be considered.

“As a humble kid, born in the town of Uvalde, Texas, it never occurred to me that I would ever qualify for political leadership,” he said.

Lessons Learned: “I started to realize how valuable and enduring that year in Australia was to me, that I wouldn’t be the man I am today unless I took that year,” said Matthew.

“It’s a humble and inspiring path to ponder. It’s also a path I’m choosing not to take right now.’

McConaughey never said whether he would run as a Democrat, Republican or Independent, instead describing his politics as “aggressively centrist.”

Nor had he outlined any policy priorities, although he is known for his environmental and youth activism.
