Penelope Cruz is so charmed by the unique way her boyfriend MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY speaks Spanish, she never corrects him when he makes a mistake.

The Latin actress, who fell for McConaughey after filming SAHARA together, is yet to teach the hunky actor how to speak in her native language, but he seems to be developing his own style.

Cruz says, "Matthew speaks a lot of Spanish. He speaks his own way that is very funny.

"I don't even want to correct him because he communicates what he wants to say.

"But I have never heard anybody speak in the way he does."
