Matthew McConaughey wants award to inspire kids

Mar 3 2014, 11:26am CST | by

Matthew McConaughey hopes his Oscar win will inspire his children.

The 44-year-old actor - who has children Levi, five, Vida, three, and Livingston, 14 months, with wife Camila Alves - picked up the Best Actor prize for 'Dallas Buyers Club' last night (03.02.14) and wants it to teach his kids they can achieve their dreams if they work hard.

He said: "The lesson that they'll hopefully kind of get is that whatever you're going to do, if you put your head down and do it as well as you can right now, sometimes a little reward comes your way later in life."

Matthew revealed his kids would have seen his win as they were tuning in at home.

He said: "My family is very obviously important to me as anybody's family is. My kids are at home, they're watching Pappy and we told them, 'What is tonight about?' They said, 'Pappy is up for an award with four other men that they're deeming excellent work in what I do'.

"I think they understand that Dad did good tonight."

Though the 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor was thrilled by his win and is thankful for his achievements, both personally and professionally, he insists he has more to do.

He told 'Access Hollywood': "I've got so much in my life to be thankful for and there's still so much more to do. There's so much to be thankful for and I find the more that I can be thankful for the things that I do have, the more I nurture those things, the better they grow."

You can't say Watch What Happens Live! doesn't deliver! We were expecting Andy Cohen's American Horror Story episode to be a must-watch, but it was so much better than that.

Anne Hathaway in Wes Gordon at the UK ‘Interstellar’ premiere: matronly or lovely?

Oct 30 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos from last night’s Insterstellar premiere in London. It just occurred to me yesterday, as I was covering Anne Hathaway’s Telegraph interview, that some of these actors might be aiming for Oscar nominations. Annie clearly is. Jessica Chastain probably wouldn’t mind, but she’s not going to go all Hathaway for a nomination. And Matthew McConaughey? Alright alright alright. As for the fashion, I ...

Usher on Justin Bieber: I'll Punch Him in the F--king Chest!

Oct 29 2014 12:31pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

If you already have a role model -  like say, Gandhi or Abraham Lincoln - you may want to set them aside in favor of Usher, because dude just set the world on fire with truth and awesomeness. Usher gave an interview to Billboard magazine recently, and because he's something of a mentor to Justin Bieber, the topic of Bieber being a complete douche came up.  Rather than just avoiding the topic and pre ...

Jim Carrey has amazing stories about how much Tommy Lee Jones hated him

Oct 29 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I never saw Batman Forever, the one with Val Kilmer as the Batman and Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones as the bad guys (the Riddler and Two-Face). That one and the George Clooney Bat-nippled one just kind of escaped me. But I remember hearing stuff about the Batman Forever production and how tortuous the whole thing was everyone involved. Tommy Lee Jones was fresh off his Oscar win for The Fugitive and he clearly just signed on to the Batman movi ...

Anne Hathaway refused to shake hands with a Brazilian journo because of ‘Ebola’

Oct 28 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m not OCD, nor am I clean freak. I like to work in a controlled mess – things may seem disorganized around me, but I have my own system. But as I get older, I do get more germ-phobic. I’m really good about washing my hands as soon as I come back from any excursion and I often shower twice a day. As I get older, the less I like casual physical contact too. Unless I’m formally meeting someone for the first time, I don’t like to shake hands and I’m not a big hugger either. So… I’m ...

Anne Hathaway Refuses To Shake Argentinian Journalist’s Hand Because She Was ‘Afraid Of Ebola’

Oct 27 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: RadarOnline

Anne Hathaway just gave more fuel to the Hatha-haters. An Argentinian journalist flew to Los Angeles to attend a screening of the star’s new movie, Interstellar, and was snubbed because the actress was afraid she would catch Ebola. Each one of the film’s stars shook Alexis Puig’s hand after he interviewed them – everyone except Hathaway, that is. The offended journalist took to Twitter to air his grievances ...

Jim Carrey does Matthew McConaughey on SNL

Oct 27 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Lainey Gossip

I thought it was a pretty strong Saturday Night Live this weekend hosted by Jim Carrey. The sketches were weird if they weren’t funny, with a kind of random silliness that I found really…appealing. And his Matthew McConaughey accent is RIGHT ON. The fact ...

Anne Hathaway in Richard Nicholl at the ‘Interstellar’ premiere: pretty or dated?

Oct 27 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of Interstellar. It had the feel of a big red carpet but there really weren’t many fashion-y people there beyond the principal actors. So I’m just focusing on the stars. Let’s start with Anne Hathaway, whose hair is really starting to look worlds better, right? She did the pixie-ish cut for too long after Les Mis. I’m really happy with her hair now – so much softer ...
