McConaughey's Lost Weekend

7/7/2006 2:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew McConaughey celebrated his independence from former girlfriend Penelope Cruz with a three-day bender in Costa Rica over the Fourth of July weekend.


Taking a cue from the movie that launched his career, the "Sexiest Man Alive" left much to be desired partying on the beach looking 'dazed and confused.'

Check out pics of Matthew's weekend beach blast.

A barefoot, shirtless, and sweaty Matthew got his groove on by drinking, dancing, writhing on the floor and even shushing one of his fellow vacationers.



Apparently McConaughey recuperated in no time, because just a couple of days later the confirmed bachelor was spotted hanging out with his bike riding buddies Jake Gyllenhaal and Lance Armstrong in Malibu.

I've been wondering about Matthew's thirst for the drink...since he was on a few talk shows and insisted the host join him in a shot of Tequila.

Yeah he drinks a LOT. Could explain his Merry Go Round lovelife. Cleaning up after a drunk isn't so fun.

"Former girlfriend Penelope Cruz"?

She was an obvious beard orthe making of Sahara, as she was for Cruise. (Remember Matthew's discovery, arrest, small dog named Miss Scarlett and cycling exploits with Jake).

Surely, Harvey knows better.

And if he wants us to take TMZ seriously, he shouldn't treat us like we're morons.

Wow, I haven't seen a train wreck this bad since Tara Reid disintegrated into a drunken mess on the E channel. He looks even worse than that mug shot of Nick Nolte after Nolte's DWI. I hope the Betty Ford clinic has a vacancy for this lost soul.
