The Lincoln Lawyer and Magic Mike actor married Brazilian model Camilla Alves, with whom he has three young children, last year.

He said: "I have the great privilege of having a wife who agreed, in fact suggested, that when I go to work, we all go together."

In the last 12 months, Matthew's appeared as a menacing cop in the dark drama Killer Joe; made the docudrama Bernie, and appeared as a sado-masochistic reporter in The Paperboy.

He is about to star in independent movie Mud after moving away from romantic comedies.

The 43-year-old said: "I didn't actually go out and grab all those things - some of them came to me - but I did put the brakes on some other things I was doing for about a year and a half and decided I was going to wait," he said.

"I said to myself, 'I don't know exactly what it is I want to do but I want to wait until something comes in that really intrigues me.' I wanted to look forward to that journey."

:: Mud is in cinemas now.
