Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey says he won’t raise his children in Hollywood because he prefers to be close to his extended family in Texas.
The 44-year-old ‘Interstellar’ actor has always planned to bring his wife Camila Alves and children Levi, six, Vida, four, and 22-month-old Livingston up in his home state of Texas, where they can be closer to their extended family, reported Contactmusic.
“I never had anything against the idea of bringing my kids up in Hollywood. But on the other hand, I did and do want to base them in Texas.
“My mother lives about 25 minutes away so I get to see her, and the grandkids get to see her, every weekend instead of twice a year. I also have two brothers who live there, so we see family much more often than we used to and that’s important to me, especially as everyone is getting older. My mother is 82,” McConaughey said.
