Cape Town – Matthew McConaughey thought Busy Philipps’ name was Whimsy when he first met her and honestly we wouldn’t mind it.
Philipps filled in for Kelly Rippa in Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. McConaughey appeared on the show to promote his latest movie The Dark Tower.
As soon as the show finished, Busy took to Instagram to share a story about when she first met the 47-year-old that she didn’t get to share on the show.
The story goes like this:
“Years ago, at a pre-Oscar party when Heath and Michelle were both nominated for Brokeback, Matthew McConaughey came up to congratulate them and we were introduced.
“He talked with us for about 10 minutes and when he left he said, ‘Heath, Michelle, congratulations and best of luck to you this weekend. Marc, it was nice to meet you. WHIMSY, it was a pleasure!’”
Naturally, neither Busy nor Heath or Michelle corrected him because well, it’s Matthew McConaughey.
And quite honestly he could call us any damn thing he wants to!
