Mcconaughey Takes Over Rat Pack Pad For Photo Shoot
MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY lived out one of his dreams during a recent Men's Health magazine photo shoot, posing for shots at FRANK SINATRA's former desert retreat. The Sahara star donned 'Rat Pack'-style casualwear and suits for the spread at the iconic crooner's Palm Springs, California party palace. MCConaughey admits he has always been a fan of Sinatra's Rat Pack style and their ideology. He says, "They were a small fraternity of the hippest, coolest cats out there, man. They were talented, paid hard, played classy, and always looked sharp. And they never wasted their time. "They are what I like best about the limelight lifestyle. Those guys weren't going to the show unless they were the show." As well as serving as the Men's Health March (08) cover model, MCConaughey offers laid-back lifestyle tips for those seeking a relief from stress. In an agony uncle-style column, the chilled-out actor admits exercise is often the best way to combat stress - and he always makes time for fitness breaks. He explains, "I'll drop and give myself 20 push-ups at intervals throughout the day - 9am, bang out 20. Sitting in a boring meeting at 10.30, bang out 20. I do that 10 times throughout the day."
