Matthew McConaughey believes his house is haunted.

The star of How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days – who was once arrested for smoking marijuana naked while playing bongo drums – says he discovered a ghost in his new Hollywood home when he staged “initiation rituals” in the bedroom.

“When I first moved in there I had a tent and I put it up on the floor of the upstairs bedroom with my sleeping bag and my dog,” he tells the internet site teenhollywood.com.

“That’s when I first saw Madame Blue. The first night I’m hearing noises, I’m hearing bass sounds, wood moving and coyotes, but then I heard this sound like a dime dropping from ten feet off the ground onto a glass table. I popped out of bed and went, ‘That’s too much trouble, man, that’s man-made, and that was not the house."

He went to investigate. “I’m running around buck naked... I go downstairs and there’s nothing there, but I have seen her since. She has no problems with me - we get along just fine. She’s a cool ghost. Maybe me being nude all the time is why we get along.”
