Woody Harrelson is close to Matthew McConaughey’s family. The two actors, who starred together in “True Detective”, have known each other over the course of their lives and continue to make space for each other, evidenced by a photo shared by McConaughey’s wife, Camila Alves.
Alves shared an Instagram post celebrating her and McConaughey’s daughter’s birthday. Vida was celebrating her 13th birthday and hosted a birthday party to celebrate. Alves’ post showed Vida waiting to blow the candles off her birthday cake while Harrelson appeared in the background, making a thoughtful face. “Uncle Woody Harrelson is questioning if the cake is vegan or not!” wrote Alves. “How does this go people! Time flies… 13! You are my ray of sunshine Vida!!! Your name explains everything about you “life” (tb on celebrating her birthday on our family vacation trip January 3rd).” Vida was dressed up for the occasion, wearing a crown of flowers, a white top and some black pants. Harrelson hovered behind her and wore a green shirt with maroon pants.
McConaughey and Alves have been together for years, with the two first meeting in the year 2006, where they met at a club and set up a date to spend more time together. They had their first kid together, Levi, in the year 2008. “Camila and I were side-by-side the entire time. We are both tired and elated, and are so happy to have created the greatest miracle in the world — having a child and making a family. Now comes the greatest adventure — raising one, together,” said McConaughey of his son’s birth.
The couple married in 2012 and has three kids together: Vida, Levi and Livingston. “To my wife, Camila, and my kids Levi, Vida and Livingston: the courage and significance you give me every day when I go out the door is unparalleled,” said McCaughnahey after he won an Oscar for the film “Dallas Buyers Club”. “You are the four people in my life I want to make the most proud of me.”
Harrelson and McCoughnahey have been friends for years. While their biggest collaboration was HBO’s “True Detective,” the two know each other since the ‘90s, when they worked on the film “EDtv”. “One of the things where (Woody) and I are good at (in) comedy is where I start, and he ends, and he starts, and I end, and we really get on a similar frequency and roll with it,” said McConaughey in an interview with Insider.
