Matthew McConaughey Camped Out While Filming ‘Mud’

matthew-mcconaughey-mud-shirtless_0 Matthew McConaughey’s love for nature is well-known so it’s no surprise that he decided to put up a tent near the filming location and live there while shooting his new movie Mud. He loved it so much and said:  ”I loved being out there in nature like that. The stage was the Mississippi river. To live there while a while, to camp out there, you quickly get the rhythm and the sense of smell and taste and humidity and weight, and how time trickles along like that river. It’s four miles per hour. It just slowly moves and it’s an unstoppable force. Arkansas is called the Natural State and you see why. It’s a really gorgeous place. The thing about where we shot this is that Mother Nature rules down there.”M

The movie Mud is out next month. It tells the story of an island dweller (McConaughey) who is waiting for his love (Reese Witherspoon) to return. Matthew spoke about the character he plays, describing him as a dreamer and said: ”He has this unconditional love for this woman. He’s had it for 35 years and he’ll probably have it a million lifetimes after. It’s boundless, it’s endless.”
