Matthew & Penelope Say Adios

It's adios for Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz.

According to a statement they released to, the couple "decided to take time off as a couple. Due to busy work schedules and so much time apart, they mutually decided four weeks ago that separating was the best thing to do at this time."

Last month, Matthew flew to Spain to visit Penelope while she's filming Manolete, a movie about a Spanish bullfighter. Then he returned to Atlanta, where he's getting ready to wrap We Are… Marshall, a film about the 1970 plane crash that killed most of Marshall University's football team.

Matthew and Penelope had been dating for over a year – they met on the set of Sahara.

Who should Matthew hook up with next? His past girlfriends include Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd to get a sense of his "type." Play matchmaker for the Sexiest Man Alive below.
