Transcript for Matthew McConaughey Attracts Attention to 'Sure Walk Program' at Alma Mater
"Pop news" time. Matthew mcconaughey raised eyes when he starred in that Lincoln commercial. Now he's trading it for safety. At his I will ma matter, the university of Texas, mcconaughey hitting the streets for a great cause. It's the program that gives students free rides or providing someone to walk home with them on campus any time needed between 7:00 P.M. And 2:00 A.M. To ensure a safe return to their dorm in case they're perhaps a little dazed and confused. It is not new but has become so important in the aftermath of that young female student killed on campus last year, so Matthew, we thank you for bringing that. George, I know it's a friend of yours. Paul begala, opportunity body president back when it started in the 1980s. It was a walk program for the longest time but after this killing he and his wife bought the golf cart and it's really making a difference out there. Yep. And thank you for bringing that to us. Also in "Pop news," this morning, happy to report wedding vows for a favorite "Dancing with the stars" pro. Mark Ballas tying the knot with his girlfriend. When did this happen? This past weekend. She wrote "If I was a boy" for Beyonce. But, boy, she looked anything but. Not a boy. Nope. Out there in the Santa Monica wedding. She wore -- George says that under his breath. So we hear it. Look at these pictures. Go ahead, just roll them slowly enjoy. She really is one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen. I don't know what those -- there's some of the guests. Incredible bejeweled headpiece and Ballas starring in Broadway "Jersey boys" on Broadway wore a custom three-piece suit and his best man Derek hough and his other, a 2-year-old rescue dog and Julianne and guess what they did at the reception. Dancing. Everybody catch mark in "Jersey boys." See more from the wedding on people's website. They're waiting until mark is done with Broadway and then they're going to go -- they are the cutest couple. So congrats. Finally, I'm happy to report this, the exercise industry can be quite a racket as we know but no game when it comes to determining what sport can increase your life expectancy, a new study by the British journal "Sports medicine" analyzed 0,000 adults for nearly a decade so this is LE yet and found one sport that was game, set and match above the rest. Oh. Your sport. Tennis, badminton or squash, 56% less likely people who play them a lot are 56% less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than those who swim or do aerob aerobics. George, not getting rid of me for a long time. Good thing. Kind of surprising, though. Yeah, agreed. Especially swimming and especially if you saw me on the tennis court you would think I could die at any moment. How often do you get a chance to play tennis. Not a lot because I'm still recovering. When I was playing, the reason I needed hip surgery is because I was playing a lot, three to four times a week. So hopefully many years to come. That's "Pop news," everybody. All right, Lara, coming up
