Naked Matthew McConaughey chased a ghost around his Hollywood home. The hunky actor, who is rumoured to be romancing his 'Sahara' co-star Penelope Cruz, freaked out when he saw what he thought was the spirit of a woman in his new Hollywood Hills home. Matthew, who chased the ghost with a baseball bat, claims he has now made friends with the phantom, who he has named Madame Blue. He explained: "She's a cool ghost. Maybe being nude all the time is why we get along."

Matthew is renowned for his love of stripping off - in 1999, police raided the actor's home after noise complaints from neighbours and discovered him playing bongos in the nude.
