Matthew McConnaughey says that his attempts to maintain his privacy are ruined by his mother's loose lips.

In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph the Magic Mike actor revealed that a friend told him to turn on TV programme Hard Copy as his mother was showing a reporter around their home, showing them ''where Matthew slept with his first girlfriend'' and more.

His brother told him many times: "Buddy, you put up a valiant effort trying to curb our mother. I've been around a lot longer than you, and I tried, and I saw Dad try and you ain't changing her..."

''So now I've said, 'You know what Mom? Free rein. Go for it. ''
