There was once a time when Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey was the go to man for any rom-com role that was going, as he continued to churn our rom-com after rom-com for quite a few years. Matthew was not really considered a great Hollywood actor at that time, as he just seemed to continue taking the same role time and time again.
Now though, things have become very different for Matthew McConaughey, who has completely transformed his career, being regarded as one of the best and most talented actors in Hollywood. The transformation of Matthew McConaughey's career has seen him nominated for the Best Actor award at the 2014 Oscars and winning that would complete a career turn around.
Matthew McConaughey was recently chatting to Alex Zane, when he spoke to him about moving away from the rom-com roles and taking on the more serious characters. Matthew says that he got to a stage in his career where he was reading rom-com scripts and felt that he could do them next week, where he instead wanted to start taking risks and accepting roles where he did not know what he would do with the character but would love the journey of discovering it.
That decision has clearly paid of for him, as Matthew McConaughey is the favourite to land the Best Actor Oscar at the 86th Academy Awards. Matthew faces stiff competition from Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Bruce Dern. The stars are beginning to walk the red carpet, as the 2014 Oscars gets ever closer to beginning.
Who do you think will win big at the Oscars?
