Actor Matthew Mcconaughey hid his knowledge of Spanish from girlfriend Penelope Cruz while they filmed their latest movie Sahara.

The Madrid-born actress regularly swore on set in Morocco as she roughed it alongside McConaughey, as they were subject to blinding sandstorms, spiders, and snakes.

McConaughey says, "I understand more (Spanish) than she knows! I just haven't told her yet. I just pretended not to know what kind of cuss words she was using!"
