Popular actor Matthew McConaughey and model Camila Alves recently celebrated another anniversary. For 10 years of marriage, they managed to do quite a lot. The spouses consider their beloved children to be their most important achievements, and the couple has three of them. And if a lot of facts are known about the life of an actor, then the public knows practically nothing about his beautiful wife Camila Alves. In the article you will get acquainted with the biography of the model, learn about her acquaintance with Matthew, as well as about her self-realization in the modeling business.


Camila was born in 1982 in Brazil. Her father was a farmer who loved to travel. This passion was subsequently passed on to his daughter. The girl's mother was a designer. Her love of fashion was also passed on to her daughter. In general, her family was quite prosperous and lived a calm, measured life. However, when Alves was 15 years old, the passion for long trips passed down from his father made itself felt. Camila decided to go to visit her own aunt, who lived in sunny LosAngeles. The young girl liked life in the United States of America so much that she decided to stay here. But isn't it madness to remain in a country without knowledge of the language and citizenship? Camila considered that these difficulties were temporary, and by overcoming them, she would be able to succeed.

Life in America

Staying in Los Angeles, the girl immediately realized that in order to live in abundance, you need to work hard and hard here. She did not shy away from dirty work, so she took on any paid occupation. She worked as a waitress in cheap eateries, and as a cleaner in disadvantaged and dangerous areas of the city. Despite the lack of knowledge of the English language, she decided to start learning it by all means. Working and learning the language, Camila managed to gradually escape from monstrous poverty and get closer to her main goal. And her goal was to live the "American way of life".
