McConaughey, who was born in Texas, says he chose to live there because "my mother is there, the rest of my family is there, part of the reason for going back there was having kids."
The "Dallas Buyers Club" star, 47, and his wife Camila Alves are parents to three children -- sons Levi and Livingston, and daughter Vida.
"That's important to the kids, important to Camila and I, important to my mom," he said.
He also gets to see the rest of his family, including his brothers.
"I just feel at home there," he added. "A mile feels like a mile, 60 minutes feels like an hour and a day feels like 24 hours. A relationship with time is important to me."
