LOS ANGELES – Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey capped off a blockbuster year Monday as he received a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.
â€œItâ€™s a special day, great moment in my career and for my family,â€ McConaughey, dressed in a light-colored suit with an open collar, said, as some of Tinseltownâ€™s biggest names looked on.
Hundreds of fans also turned out and McConaughey was accompanied by his Brazilian wife Camila Alves and their three children, Levi, Vida, and Livingston.
The 45-year-old actor was also joined by producer Don Phillips and Christopher Nolan, who directed McConaugheyâ€™s latest smash film â€œInterstellar.â€

â€œInterstellarâ€ co-stars, the Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, added their star quality to the glittering red-carpet event.
