"Guys I'd Probably Like To Do If I Were Gay, Which I'm Not."

For the first installment of this cutting edge new feature, the man I'd like to highlight for my nomination of "Guys I'd Probably Like to Do, If I Were Gay, Which I'm Not" is:

Matthew McConaughey

And not just 'cuz he's the flava o' the minute for one Penelope Cruz.

Matt seems to me to be the kind of guy who probably always wonders what all the fuss is about?

Watching him in his various roles, I can't help but get the image of a pretty down to earth guy who is serious about his art. He loves the attention, but kind of laughs about it, and maybe figures, "Hey, they want to take my picture? Go for it. It's your film..."

You know, Matt and me, we'd be buds. It would probably help that I'm not ACTUALLY gay, and as such, wouldn't keep making leading suggestions about a quick dip in the hot tub and just one more glass of Pinot Noir.

Yeah, Matt and me, we'd hang. I'll bet he drinks domestic beer. Probably a Microbrew, though, cuz, well, he IS Matt McConaughey. Why Drink Schlitz when there's Hale's Moss Bay Extra?

And that accent, I'm telling ya, if I was gay (which I'm not) that rolling, laid-back drawl of his would get me all a twitter. In theory, of course.

I usually can figure a guy is good looking if I find myself thinking, "Damn. I'd give my left nut to wake up one morning and look like that guy."

So, I think I can safely say that Matthew McConaughey is one of those guys.

Hat's off to ya, Matt. You virile, manly stud you. Er, I mean, well, uh....
