Matthew McConaughey stepped out for a rare red carpet appearance with his oldest son, Levi, and everyone is saying the same thing.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll get something of a kick out of seeing celebrities wheeling out their offspring to the public.

Call it strange, but I genuinely enjoy watching the sons and daughters of my favorite A-listers grow up. When you’ve followed someone’s career since the beginning, and thereby watched most of their lives unfold before your eyes, it’s easy to think of them as a friend – yes, even if they don’t even know you exist.

I guess that’s the fun part of being someone’s ‘fan’. A by-product of this is that when said celebrity has children, you’re delighted for them. It’s almost like a long-distance friend has welcomed a child, and you’re rooting for the kids to do well in life, just as you root for their mother or father.

Now, while some celebrities take no issue with their brood being exposed to the limelight from an early age, there are others who want their children to live as close to normal lives as possible. This often means that they do their utmost to keep their babies sheltered from the flashing lights of cameras and the ever-voracious paparazzi press.

You could say Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves have taken that approach. The couple have three children, Levi, Vida, and Livingston, but the trio have remained relatively anonymous to the public throughout their young lives.

Perhaps that’s why Levi – Matthew and Camila’s eldest – caused such a stir when he stepped onto the red carpet alongside his famous parents recently to attend the annual Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala.

As per US Weekly, Matthew, Camila, and Levi turned out for the event last Thursday in Austin, Texas. Camila donned a stunning dress of yellow and green – surely a nod to her Brazilian roots – while Matthew and Levi opted for a more smart casual approach.

While there’s absolutely nothing strange with Matthew and Camila opting to bring their son with them for the event, Levi’s presence was enough to have a lot of people talking. The family are known for preferring to keep a low profile despite their obvious fame – McConaughey almost never posts about his children on his social media channels, and event appearances with them in tow are equally as rare.

With Levi now 14 years old, however, it appears as though his parents are loosening their stance a little.

Earlier this year, Levi was in attendance for the fall/winter 2023/24 presentation by Stella McCartney, and fans of Matthew McConaughey took to the internet in droves to remark on just how much he resembled his award-winning actor father.

Unsurprisingly, the same sentiment appeared to be echoed this time around, following Levi’s appearance on the red carpet at Thursday’s event in Texas.

Indeed, fans expressed their thoughts on Twitter, commenting on just how much Levi is starting to look like Matthew.

“Sorta looks like Matthew McConaughey,” one person commented.

“Matthew McConaughey’s son Levi, 14, bears a striking resemblance to his famous father,” another said.

“Former world’s sexiest man Matthew McConaughey has passed on his good looks to his teenage son, Levi,” You Magazine said earlier this year.

Yahoo Life, meanwhile, wrote: “Between his curly blonde hair and his confidence at #ParisFashionWeek, Levi McConaughey could pass as his dad’s twin!“

Who knows when we’ll next see Levi, or how much we might see of him moving forward. Not much is know about the teenager’s plans for the future and if he’s considering making a move into the acting world. If you’re anything like me, though, you’ll be watching his progress with a deal of anticipation.

What do you think? Is Levi a carbon copy of his dad? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
