The 49-year-old Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey appeared on Monday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and while there he dished on K-Pop, (literally) wrestling his kids and the pros and cons of friendship with Anne Hathaway.
"Levi wanted to go see BTS for his birthday, his favorite band, BTS,” McConaughey said. “They’re South Korean, and my son is walking around the house months before he wants to go to this concert and he knows all the songs. He was rapping Korean.”
For Levi’s 10th birthday, he and his wife Camila, relented … and emerged as fans themselves.
“We took a couple of his friends, Camila and I went, and we had a blast. We got out of our seats, we got right down in the pit and we broke a sweat dancing,” he said of the concert.
He described his son Livingston, 6, as more of a “handful” than a pop aficionado.
The father of three said: "He’s a literal handful, meaning he’s the comedian as well as he’s the bruiser. He sometimes doesn’t like to use his words enough to get his point across. He gets a little of that from me, sometimes maybe. I like to wrestle. We have a wrestling mat. When you come in the door that’s what we have out there, so if someone’s got really something that they want to contest and they don’t want to talk about it, let’s go up on the wrestling mat, gang.”
He also dished on his co-star Hathaway, who has no problem being fashionably late.
"My birthday’s on the fourth of November, so we had the party that night. And I didn’t notice, but the Hathaways didn’t show up,” he said. "The next day, wake up, I was still in my robe around 5 p.m., the time that we had started the party the day before, and the doorbell rings. Balloons, I open up, ‘Happy Birthday!’ It’s Anne, and they’re got a bottle of wine, they’ve got balloons, a gift, and I’m like, ‘Great! Come on in.’ She tells me, she says, ‘You were so nice, you didn’t say anything at the gate. You brought us in, open the bottle of wine, poured everyone a glass, and said, ‘You do know my birthday was yesterday.’ Anyway we did party into 2 a.m. that night.”
