Matthew Mcconaughey was almost killed on the African set of his new movie SAHARA, and he fears no-one back home in America would have ever found out what happened to him.

The Texan actor enjoyed a scary encounter with a crocodile in a very remote part of Morocco.

He says, "You know what the funny thing is? If I had been eaten alive by a croc, the news would not have made it back home. It's a place where there isn't any telephone or electricity but I figured, if I'm going to go that way, then I've already been written off as part of the food chain."
