Los Angeles - Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey capped off a blockbuster year on Monday as he received a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"It's a special day, great moment in my career and for my family," McConaughey, dressed in a light-coloured suit with an open collar, said, as some of Tinseltown's biggest names looked on.

Hundreds of fans also turned out and McConaughey was accompanied by his Brazilian wife Camila Alves and their three children, Levi, Vida, and Livingston.

The 45-year-old actor was also joined by producer Don Phillips and Christopher Nolan, who directed McConaughey's latest smash film Interstellar.

"McConaughey works harder than anybody else. He deserves this," said Nolan, who also directed the most recent Batman trilogy.

Interstellar co-stars, the Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, added their star quality to the glittering red-carpet event.

Receiving the star caps off a particularly memorable year for McConaughey that saw him win his Oscar for best actor for his portrayal of an Aids patient in Dallas Buyers Club.

McConaughey also caught the eye for his roles in The Wolf of Wall Street, The Wedding Planner and the recent hit television series True Detective.

His breakout role came in the 1993 film Dazed and Confused.
