The 38-year-old actor annoyed his co-star Kate Hudson by refusing to wear deodorant while filming new movie Fool’s Gold in Australia and the Bahamas.

He said: “Kate always bought a salt rock, which is a natural deodorant, and said, ‘Would you please put this on?’ ”

Matthew declined Kate’s gifts because he has been brought up to embrace a more natural existence. He said: “I grew up in the country and didn’t wear shirts or shoes. My mother didn’t even put a bathing suit on us in the country club until we were nine.”

Matthew recently revealed he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Camila Alves. The Sahara star announced the happy news on his website last week, saying he is “excited” about experiencing parenthood for the first time.

He wrote: “My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together. We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child.”
