0

Matthew McConaughey was honored by his former movie co-stars Jennifer Garner and Kate Hudson, and the cast of Interstellar, as he picked up the American Cinematheque Award on Tuesday night.

The Oscar-winning actor received the coveted prize during a gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California and he was joined by former co-stars including Dallas Buyers Club‘s Garner, True Detective actress Michelle Monaghan, and How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days lead Hudson.

The blonde beauty, who also appeared with McConaughey in another rom-com, Fool’s Gold, took to the stage to pay tribute to her friend, saying, “He attacks everything with an intensity that is palpable. He’s truly a phenomenal actor, and a bright shining star.”

During the gala, McConaughey was also feted by his Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, who branded the actor “the emotional center” of the new sci-fi film, and director Christopher Nolan, who handed him the award.

Nolan told the audience, “I’m not a believer in the ‘McConaissance’. I think Matthew’s success of late is the rest of us catching up to what he’s been doing. I’m very proud to know him. I’ve never worked with an actor so relentless in his pursuit of truth in everything he does. This is a performer who can’t say ‘Pass the salt’ without it being truthful, without it meaning something.”

Other guests at the event, which was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, included McConaughey’s Mud co-star Reese Witherspoon and actress Jess Weixler.
