Ever watch Wedding Planner or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and wish you were the girl destined to be with Matthew McConaughey?

Well, don't get too excited. According to his wife, Camila Alves, the actor isn't quite like his on-screen rom-com persona.

"It's very funny because people see him on screen or out there in public in a certain way, and they have this vision of him being this romantic and so passionate. Just very romantic and grabs you and kisses you," Alves told James Lipton, the host of Inside the Actors Studio, according to Us Weekly.

"And sometimes I'm like, 'Who is this guy? Can you be a little bit of that?'"

Lipton asked McConaughey to confirm whether or not what his model wife was saying was true.

His response? "Absolutely."

But despite not being quite the romantic perhaps Alves hoped for, when asked how they met, McConaughey did declare it was love at first sight for him.

So while our rom-com dreams of McConaughey may be shattered, we still think he's a total sweetheart!
