Busy Philipps Says Matthew McConaughey Thought Her Name Was 'Whimsy' Years Ago!

Busy Philipps Says Matthew McConaughey Thought Her Name Was 'Whimsy' Years Ago!

Busy Philipps was the guest host on Live! with Kelly and Ryan on Monday (July 31) and she got to interview Matthew McConaughey… but the best story was told on social media after the show.

The 38-year-old actress met Matthew for the first time in 2006 while attending a party with her friend Michelle Williams and her late love Heath Ledger, who was Oscar-nominated at the time for Brokeback Mountain.

Busy‘s husband Marc Silverstein was also with them at the time.

“Wait. I didn’t get to tell this story cause when you’re hosting, you know, ITS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU,” Busy wrote on Instagram. “But years ago, at a pre-oscar party when Heath and Michelle were both nominated for Brokeback, Matthew McConaughey came up to congratulate them and we were introduced.”

“He talked with us for about 10 mins and when he left he said, ‘Heath, Michelle, congratulations and best of luck to you this weekend. Marc, it was nice to meet you. WHIMSY, it was a pleasure!’” Busy added. “We obviously didn’t correct him cause who cares?!- he’s Matthew McConaughey! He can call me whatever he wants! But we all just about died. And Michelle to this DAY sometimes calls me Whimsy. And it always makes us laugh. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Also. He’s so hot.”

Such a funny story!
