Matthew McConaughey Recounts Terrifying Moment His & Wife Camila Alves’ Plane Made Emergency Landing

Matthew McConaughey is opening up about the terrifying moment a recent flight he was on was forced to make an emergency landing. The “True Detective” star joined Kelly Ripa’s “Let’s Talk Off Camera” podcast on Wednesday, and recounted the alarming incident that happened when he and his wife, Camila Alves’ were aboard a Lufthansa Plane in March. “The captain said it dropped 4,000 feet…It’s suspended disbelief. I mean, it’s zero gravity. Your red wine and the glass and the plates that your food was on are all suspended, floating, still just in the air…it was a hell of a scare,” he explained. According to NBC News, the aircraft was scheduled to fly from Texas to Germany but encountered heavy turbulence and made an emergency landing near Washington D.C. Matthew went on to detail the complete loss of control he felt, revealing that he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and, in the moment, reached over to make sure his wife was. “It was the hairiest flight I have had by far,” he said.
