“Levi’s another name for Matthew in the bible. We had talked about possibly Matthew, Jr. if he was a boy. And my favorite [verse] in the bible is Matthew 6:22,” Matthew revealed to host Michael Strahan. “We find out he’s a boy when he’s born. You’re not thinking about the name, right? An hour later, the doctor comes up and he hands you that card to fill out: ‘Blank was born at 6:22 p.m.’ So we went, ‘It’s Levi.’”

    Cute story – if it’s true. But this man has a long, long track record of being totally self-absorbed. I admire confidence in a man – but McConaughey has a special talent for making EVERYTHING about himself.
