Matthew: I want to be with Penelope 24/7

Matthew McConaughey has spoken for the first time about his romance with PenÚlope Cruz.

The couple started dated after they met on the set of their new film Sahara.

He said: "I'm living and breathing this person. I know every moment would be better if I were with her 24/7.

You can't sleep because you can't wait to wake up in the morning to go and see them, or you can't sleep because they're in bed with you and you don't want to go to sleep."

Sahara will be released in the UK on April 8.
