All right, all right, all right. Matthew McConaughey has been in front of the camera for over 20 years, but the 45-year-old actor only now has received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The acting veteran was honored Monday at an event attended by his wife, Camila Alves, their three children and an array of celebrity friends.
From “Dazed and Confused” in 1993 through “The Wedding Planner” in 2001 and this year's “Interstellar,” McConaughey has proved to be a versatile actor, able to play Kate Hudson's love interest in a romantic comedy and an oddball drunk detective on “True Detective.” While there are endless jokes about his recreational use of marijuana and his habit of always ending up shirtless, McConaughey’s numerous award nominations speak volumes about his evolution from roles like Ben Barry in 2003’s rom-com “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” to his current major-event movies.
McConaughey won the Academy Award, the Golden Globe and the SAG Award for his portrayal of Ron Woodroof in 2013's “Dallas Buyers Club.” This year he took home the TCA Award and Critics’ Choice Television Award for his portrayal of Detective Rust Cohle in HBO’s “True Detective.” With his latest flick, “Interstellar,” reaching over $300 million at the global box office, and picking up buzz, the actor may have another set of nominations and awards under his belt when this year's awards season rolls around.
McConaughey's the 2,534th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
