Matthew McConaughey Reveals Extremely Gaunt Look for New Movie Role


Matthew McConaughey


The 'Magic Mike' actor is spotted looking very skinny and pale as part of his drastic transformation to play an AIDS-infected man in true-story drama 'The Dallas Buyer's Club'.

After baring his killer guns and abs in "Magic Mike", Matthew McConaughey will show a very drastic physical transformation for his upcoming film. The actor, who's been busy filming Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street", has undergone an extreme diet to portray an HIV/AIDS-infected man in true-story drama "The Dallas Buyer's Club".

McConaughey's latest transformation is revealed in a photo that has made its round online recently. In the picture taken on Tuesday, August 28, the "Killer Joe" actor looks very gaunt while stepping out solo in New York City, donning a plain white tee, flip flops and sunglasses.

In "Dallas Buyer's Club", the "Fool's Gold" star plays Ron Woodroof, a real life figure who was also a heterosexual man diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. Given only a few months to live, Woodroof began to smuggle alternative and illegal treatments into the U.S. and into the hands of other AIDS patients.

Of his role in the upcoming film, McConaughey recently said, "I'm playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn't." He told Us Weekly, "For me, it's more of a mental thing than physical thing. I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on my way, and it's what I need to do for the job."

He once also revealed about his plan to lose a total of 30 pounds for the role. "I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing this," he said in an interview with Larry King. "It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse."

Also starring Hilary Swank, "Dallas Buyer's Club" still hasn't got a U.S. release date. The film is directed by Jean Marc Vallee with Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack penning the script.
