Last year, McConaughey, 42, said while there were no immediate plans to get married, that did not make them any less committed.

"Maybe one day ... maybe something down the line at the right time," he told CNN's Piers Morgan.

"To do that, you have to really feel it. You have to really want to move forward to those things. Right now we are wonderfully happy, healthy. I get no pressure."

McConaughey and Alves, 30, got engaged in December.

McConaughey has appeared in several movies, including "The Wedding Planner" and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."
