Matthew McConaughey Reveals Proposal Details!
Thu 21-06-2012

Matthew McConaughey appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to promote his new film Magic Mike and discussed his recent wedding.

He explained: "At Christmas time, we go around our family and everyone takes turns opening presents."

"So I had wrapped the engagement ring in about 8 different boxes deep, so she would keep opening boxes to get with it."


"We finally got to her, and I’m calling my family over … She gets to it, she opens it up, her eyes go wide. I take a knee and I ask her, will you marry me and take my name?"


Matthew refused to tell the show’s host exactly what her reaction was in front of his loved ones, but admitted that it took some persuading before he could breathe a sigh of relief.


He confessed: "The first words out of her mouth were not yes. I’m not gonna say what it was. But I did say, “Look, I’m down on a knee. I’ll stay here a while. I will outlast you." And I did! She conceded.
