Matthew Mcconaughey is looking forward to his forties - insisting life gets better the older he gets.
The Sahara star turned the big 4-0 on Wednesday (04Nov09) and spent the day reminiscing with friends and family at a wild house party.
But the actor isn't concerned about approaching middle-age - branding himself a "late bloomer" who's got so much to look forward to.
On his MySpace.com blog, he writes, "The 30's were good to me and I'm really looking forward to my 40's, 'cause I'm a late bloomer.
"Got everything I need for a perfect 40th…a happy and healthy lady, son, and another baby on the way."
