Bang a drum: Matthew McConaughey is 40 years old.

"The 30's were good to me and I'm really looking forward to my 40's, 'cause I'm a late bloomer," the actor writes on his Celebrity MySpace page. "Got everything I need for a perfect 40th ... a happy and healthy lady, son, and another baby on the way."

McConaughey celebrated the milestone Tuesday night at a big birthday party featuring country musician Jamey Johnson. The bash went on until 4:30 a.m. "There were some epic stories told, lot of laughs and definitely some roasting," he writes. "Somehow, no blood or glass broken.

As for the first day of his fifth decade, McConaughey says he plans to "spend some more time with my family and friends today, grillin' steaks and sippin' beers, celebratin' more to live for."
