Matthew Mcconaughey - Matthew McConaughey credits wife for success

Matthew McConaughey puts his success down to his wife and children.

The Academy-Award winning actor describes his home life as ''enriching'' and claims the achievements in his career wouldn't have been possible without the support of his spouse Camila Alves and their children, Levi, five, Vida, four, and 15-month-old Livingston, following his win as Best Actor at the Oscars on Sunday.

Matthew told People.com: ''I try to give a lot to my life and the people in it, and I know they sure give back. I have a lot to be thankful for.

''My life outside my career is extremely enriching. So I am letting that feed my work, and letting my work feed my life.''

Richard Linklater - who gave Matthew his breakout role in 1993 film 'Dazed and Confused' - agrees that Camila's support has been a big factor in her husbands transitioning career in recent years.

He said: ''[In Hollywood] You'll have people around you who want other things [for you], but she will approach it as, 'What does Matthew want?' That's the direction she pushes him.''

Matthew and Camila have enjoyed a two-year marriage since tying the knot in 2012 after six years together.
