Matthew McConaughey reportedly requested a free pair of sunglasses for his dog BJ at the South by Southwest festival
Matthew McConaughey asked for free sunglasses - for his dog.
The 'Surfer Dude' actor requested another set of protective eyewear after taking matching pairs for himself and partner Camila Alves, telling staff at the Careera Cafe at Texas' South by Southwest festival they were for his pet.
According to the New York Daily News newspaper, Matthew asked: "Do you have any sunglasses for my dog BJ?"
It is unclear whether organisers were able to grant Matthew's request.
The actor - who has an eight-month-old son Levi with Camila - is regularly seen jogging with his pet, who also often accompanies him on trips to the beach to practise yoga.
An onlooker said recently: "It was the funniest thing because he looks so serious while he's doing the yoga. He's every bit as funny as some of his films. He just doesn't know it.
"BJ didn't seem too interested though - he was just digging holes in the sand while Matthew stretched."
