Unbeknownst to him, McConaughey’s character bet on his coworkers that he could make him fall in love with him.
McConaughey, 50, shared a video with fans on Monday, looking back at the film and revealing it made him more “box money” – an industry term for residues – than any other film.
“The film, so far, has given me the most mailboxes of any film I have ever done,” he said.
McConaughey, who starred in a series of rom-coms in the early 2000s, said chemistry between the two leads was very important in the genre.
He said: “In a romantic comedy the script must be good but the main thing is that men and women, or two leads, must have chemistry. If not, it doesn’t matter how good the script is.
“Because there is a lot of improvisation, there is a lot of banter, it’s about time, it’s about comedy time.”
McConaughey, the best Oscar-winning actor for the 2013 Dallas Buyers Club, said it’s important not to be “full of anger” in rom-com, warning “you will sink the ship” if you do.
“You have to bounce from cloud to cloud,” he said. “Dancing in the raindrops I always say. Kate and I have great chemistry about that.
“Obviously we worked after that in other films but we have very good encouragement and pull.”
McConaughey said that he and Hudson “added a lot of rock‘ n ‘roll “and” the way we fended off each other really worked in the film “.
