Hollywood actor Matthew Mcconaughey is treating his girlfriend PENELOPE CRUZ to a well-earned holiday - a road trip in his mobile home.

McConaughey, who recently starred alongside Cruz in SAHARA, has decided to ditch glitz and glamour in favour of taking his beau out for an old-fashioned driving holiday.

But the 35-year-old has no plans to propose to his Spanish lover in the wilderness.

He says, "Marriage? I don't know about that. Let's see how this vacation works out.

"I love my mobile home, I can feel my independence.

"It's great having my own four walls instead of staying in hotels all the time. Instead, I have a satellite so I can connect my mobile office at any time.

"I have my own bed, a little kitchen, a grill and water. It's not like a five star hotel but I like it better."
