Matthew McConaughey will be feted by his “Interstellar” director Christopher Nolan and costar Anne Hathaway, along with rom-com pal Kate Hudson, at the October 21 gala at LA’s Beverly Hilton. Nolan will present the American Cinematheque Award to McConaughey following a black-tie evening of live tributes.
Nolan, Hathaway and Hudson join a prestigious list of previously announced presenters: McConaughey, capping a great year with his Oscar win for “Dallas Buyers Club” and the Emmy-nominated HBO southern gothic “True Detective,” will also be toasted by Jennifer Garner, Cole Hauser, Reese Witherspoon, Lili Fini Zanuck and “Interstellar” (out November 7) costar Jessica Chastain with in-person tributes. Jimmy Kimmel will emcee the evening.
Event co-chairs include such Hollywood who’s-who as Chastain, Brad Grey, Woody Harrelson, Anne Hathaway, Alan Horn, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Donna Langley, Christopher Nolan, Amy Pascal and “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto, among many more.
McConaughey was unanimously tapped for the honor by the Cinematheque Board of Directors, who’ve feted Jerry Bruckheimer, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon in recent years. More info on this starry night here.
