Matthew McConaughey praises wife

Matthew McConaughey credits his wife for his recent big screen success

Matthew McConaughey has credited his wife with helping him succeed on the big screen.

The Lincoln Lawyer and Magic Mike actor married Brazilian model Camilla Alves, with whom he has three young children, last year.

He said: "I have the great privilege of having a wife who agreed, in fact suggested, that when I go to work, we all go together."

In the last 12 months, Matthew's appeared as a menacing cop in the dark drama Killer Joe; made the docudrama Bernie, and appeared as a sado-masochistic reporter in The Paperboy.

He is about to star in independent movie Mud after moving away from romantic comedies.

The 43-year-old said: "I didn't actually go out and grab all those things - some of them came to me - but I did put the brakes on some other things I was doing for about a year and a half and decided I was going to wait," he said.

"I said to myself, 'I don't know exactly what it is I want to do but I want to wait until something comes in that really intrigues me.' I wanted to look forward to that journey."

:: Mud is in cinemas now.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
