Matthew McConaughey misses True Detective

Los Angeles - Matthew McConaughey is "in talks" to return to True Detective.

The 46-year-old actor has revealed he has spoken to series creator Nic Pizzolatto about reprising his role as Rustin Cohle in the television drama.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, he said: "I would return. It'd have to be in the right context and the right way. It'd need that spark like when I first read the scripts.

"When I read it, I knew after 20 minutes that I could play this guy and that I'm in ... I miss Cohle, and I miss watching him on Sunday nights. I was a happy man when we made that show, because for six months I was on my own island."

And the father-of-three - who has Levi, seven, Vida, six, and Livingston, three, with his wife Camila Alves - insists he doesn't choose what roles to take on based on how he thinks they'll be received as he believes people have a "right to boo" his films. 

When asked about the critical reception towards his film The Sea of Trees, he said: "All right, all right, all right. Anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate."

Meanwhile, when it comes to his personal life, Matthew couldn't be more content, recently gushing about how it was love at first sight with the 34-year-old model.

Recalling the first time he laid eyes on the brunette beauty, he said: "I was very happily single and healthily single. I was not looking. I was sleeping well, I was spiritually sound, I was good hanging with me.

"Out of the corner of my eye, this sort of aqua-green figure went floating across the frame about 20 feet in front of me. My eye went up and I remember what came out of my mouth. I didn't say 'Who is that?' I went, 'What is that?' As l was trying to get that's attention across the room, I went in my head, 'This is not the kind of woman you call over across the room, McConaughey. Get your ass out of your chair and go get her.' Which I did.

"We went on our first date three nights later and I knew then ... I've been wanting to go on a date with her for the last nine years and not with anybody else."
