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."

Taylor Kitsch showed up at the GQ Gentleman's Ball last night as he was honored for his charity work with the African Children's Choir. He stopped to talk with Cosmopolitan Magazine about the potential of seeing him rocking a man bun on True Detective. He couldn't talk about his role on the show, yet, staying tight-lipped on the subject but would talk a little about his infamous Tim Riggins locks and its ...

Surprisingly, Bloom spoke about the Gomez dating rumors that have been swirling on and off for months while chatting with a photographer yesterday.

Flight Club: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain on ‘Interstellar’

Oct 22 2014 1:23pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

After he plumbed the direst depths of Gotham City in his “Dark Knight” trilogy and traversed multiple levels of consciousness in “Inception,” it seems the only place the filmmaker Christopher Nolan could go next was outer space. In his latest feature, “Interstellar,” an intrepid shuttle team slips the surly bonds of earth to search for wormholes, black holes and planets beyond our galaxy; at the same time, the film is closely concerned wi ...

What In The World Happened To Renee Zellweger’s Face? (PHOTOS)

Oct 22 2014 9:03am CDT | Source: TV Smack Talk

Renee Zellweger. That’s probably a name you haven’t seen in the headlines since the early 2000s. The 45-year-old actress hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2010. It has been a long time since she has walked down a red carpet. But that changed Monday night when she attended the 21st annual Elle Women in Hollywood Awards. Several photos were snapped of the actress, and she looks completely different! Typically, when ...

Jennifer Garner on sexism in Hollywood: ‘Isn’t it time to change that conversation?’

Oct 22 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Jennifer Garner was one of the honorees at the Elle Women in Hollywood event. She wore this very young purple sparkly dress which looked cheap and was tailored poorly, in my opinion. She also had on some nude lipstick that washed out her face. (Garner’s showing at Matthew McConaughey’s GQ event last night was much better. Kaiser covered that here.) During her speech at the event, Garner mentioned that Hollywood is run by men and that it can seem very sexist ...

Who was the best dressed lady at Matthew McConaughey’s tribute?

Oct 22 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I actually liked Matthew McConaughey’s GQ interview (go here to read), especially when he talked about his rom-com past and how that made him the man he is today. He’s not ashamed that he made those films, which is nice. And as a reward, so many of Matthew’s leading ladies came out to support him last night as he received the American Cinematheque Award. Seriously, almost all of Matthew’s former costars are women. It’s kind of nice. For the event, Matthew a ...

Matthew Says Keep “The Redskins”

Oct 22 2014 5:50am CDT | Source: Mix 96-5

Matthew McConaughey wants you to know how he feels about the possible name change of the Washington Redskins. Apparently he’s been a Redskins fan since he was 4 and in a GQ interview, he says, “We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, ‘No, gotta change it’? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I know a lot of Native Americans don’t have a problem with it, bu ...
