Los Angeles, April 14 (IANS) Actor Matthew Mcconaughey, who stars in the forthcoming romantic drama “Mud”, has fallen in love with nature after shooting for the movie in real locations like Mississippi river.
“I loved being out there in nature like that. The stage was the Mississippi river. To live there for 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,” contactmusic.com quoted McConaughey as saying.
“It’s four miles per hour. It just slowly moves and it is an unstoppable force. Arkansas is called the natural state and you see why. It is a really gorgeous place. The thing about where we shot this is that mother nature rules down there,” he added.
“Mud”, which also stars Reese Witherspoon, is about two teenage boys who discover a dirty looking island dweller waiting for his first love (Witherspoon) to return.
Describing his character as a dreamer, McConaughey said: “He has this unconditional love for this woman. He is had it for 35 years and he will probably have it a million lifetimes after. It is boundless, it is endless.”
