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. 😂😂 Also. He’s so hot.”

Such a funny story!

Busy Philipps Saves Her Daughter From Potential Pool Disaster

Busy Philipps‘s daughter Cricket almost had a scary experience in the pool over the holiday weekend!

The 38-year-old actress and her four-year-old daughter were enjoying the Fourth of July at a friend’s house when Cricket got a little too close to the edge of the pool.

Busy took to her Instagram to recount the experience and explain how she went into total mom mode to save Cricket.

“Just had to jump into my friends pool with my clothes on cause Cricket was on a pool float that was about to go over the edge of the infinity pool and there was no one to help her in the pool and that’s just what you do, I guess,” Busy wrote.

She added, “She’s fine. So am I. But I’m pretty soaking wet. So there’s that. HAPPY 4TH.”

We’re so glad everyone was okay!

Busy Philipps Reveals She Made More Money Through Instagram Than Acting Last Year

Busy Philipps says her main source of income isn’t acting!

The 37-year-old actress revealed that last year, she made more money through brand partnerships on social media.

“I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year. I made more money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands,” Busy said in an Instagram story.

She added, “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels partnership, which, you know, is my favorite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”

Busy went on to explain that she wouldn’t promote a product that was “random and weird,” unless it paid “like a billion dollars.”
