Hollywood hunk Matthew Mcconaughey is reportedly making plans to slow his acting career down so he can start a family with his girlfriend Penelope Cruz.

The Texan actor, who once dated Sandra Bullock, recently fired his agent, and sources say it's because he's wants to have more time to conceive children with his Spanish SAHARA co-star.

A pal says, "He's ready to have kids and spend more time in Austin."
