Matthew Mcconaughey has laughed off reports that he and Penelope Cruz are planning to wed.

The glamorous twosome have enjoyed an increasingly close relationship since working together on SAHARA, but although Hollywood is rife with rumours that the loved-up pair will marry, McConaughey insists there is no wedding on the horizon.

He says, "Right now I've got five free fingers and life is good and she and I are doing just fine.

"But no M-word has been talked yet, no."
