Matthew McConaughey was among the stars who had to evacuate their homes as a result of the Malibu fires at the weekend.

A representative for the actor insisted: "Everything is fine," but confirmed McConaughey had left his new home as a matter of precaution.

The actor and girlfriend Camila Alves went shopping in Beverly Hills while firefighters battled to keep the home they share out of harm's way.

McConaughey has since returned to his $10m (€6.7m) Malibu, California estate.
