Even when Matthew McConaughey starts his night alone, don’t expect him to end it solo.
The Sexiest Man Alive recently hit a bash at Malibu’s Polaroid Beach House in typical laid-back style – in cargo shorts and flip-flops, with his trademark bandanna tied around his head – and quickly made some female friends, who seemed to be drawn to his “hysterical” choreography as he furiously grooved to the house band.
At one point, McConaughey – who was never without a drink in his hand – flirted with a tall, svelte woman wearing a teal tank top cut down to her belly button. Then he chatted up a woman in a leopard-print dress.
And McConaughey wasn’t the only eligible bachelor on the scene: Johnathon Schaech (Christina Applegate’s ex) and Matthew Perry also hung out at the pre-event for the Style by the Shore fund-raiser. Meanwhile, Cisco Adler – whose girlfriend Mischa Barton has been in London – joined the band for a cover of a Van Morrison song.
