HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Matthew McConaughey received the 2,534th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, the latest in a series of honors he has received this year, which also include an Oscar and Emmy nomination.

Christopher Nolan, who directed McConaughey’s latest film, “Interstellar,” and Don Phillips, who cast him in his first, “Dazed and Confused,” joined McConaughey at the ceremony in front of Madame Tussauds Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard. The ceremony came 12 days after the release of “Interstellar.”

“This industry has given me a lot,” McConaughey said. “It’s given me a chance to live out some dreams I didn’t even know I had, dreams I’m still finding along the way.”

Born Nov. 4, 1969 in Uvalde, Texas, McConaughey began his career thanks to a chance meeting in Austin with Phillips, which led to his being cast in the 1993 high school comedy “Dazed and Confused” as a man in his early 20s who still socializes with high school students.

McConaughey has appeared in more than 40 feature films, winning a best actor Oscar for his portrayal of AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in “Dallas Buyers Club.”

McConaughey’s other films include “Magic Mike,” “Bernie,” “The Paperboy,” “Killer Joe,” “Mud,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “Tropic Thunder,” “We Are Marshall,” “Thirteen Conversations About One Thing,” “Frailty,” “U-571,” “EDtv,” “The Newton Boys,”

“Amistad,” “Contact,” “A Time to Kill,” “Lone Star,” “The Wedding Planner,” “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” “Failure to Launch,” “Fool’s Gold” and “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.”

McConaughey received an outstanding lead actor in a drama series Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Louisiana State Police detective Rust Cohle in HBO’s “True Detective,” but lost to “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston.
