"In a business where you can be anyone you want to be, you've been you the whole time," McConaughey told Fieri. "That ain't easy. Congratulations."

The celebrity chef said he never planned to be a TV star.

"I couldn't have dreamed this big," he said. "This is out of the stratosphere of dreaming."

In addition to hosting a number of Food Network shows such as Guy's Grocery Games and Ultimate Recipe Showdown, he's written several books, including Guy Fieri Family Food: Kitchen Tested, Home Approved and Guy on Fire: 130 Recipes for Adventures in Outdoor Cooking. He rose to fame in 2006 after winning Food Network's second season of The Next Food Network Star.
