Matthew McConaughey Loses Shocking Amount of Weight, Commits Mass Genocide on Lady Boners

If Matthew McConaughey's fantastically sleazy turn in Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike doesn't earn him an Oscar nomination (as we've predicted), then surely his next role will. McConaughey has lost over 30 pounds preparing for Jean-Marc Vallée Dallas Buyers' Club, in which he'll play an electrician, Ron Woodruff, who develops full blown AIDs and delves into the world of underground pharmacies that supply HIV drugs not approved for use in the U.S. in an attempt to prolong his life, and, ultimately, the lives of thousands of other people.

You cannot argue that Matthew McConaughey -- who has had a career resurgence since he decided to take on more serious roles -- is not committed to his craft.





And because I can't leave you with those images, here's a quick reminder of the Matthew McConaughey we know and love.

    i wish i knew the secret to losing weight so rapidly and losing just fat, not muscle

  • no one

    How can you lose weight and have your head and neck grow like that?

    {At MM, not DR, should that not be clear}

  • POINGjam

    Probably get more chicks if we lost 100 pounds.

  • JD

    OMG! Matthew's gotten himself a pair of Madonna Arms!!!

  • Natallica

    He should keep the five o' clock shadow while being so thin, he looks weirder shaved. That header picture could go directly to: http://menwholooklikeoldlesbia...

  • zeke_the_pig

    Yawn, I'm way past getting impressed when actors do this now. Smacks of desperation.

  • olaw55

    I read that script 8 years ago (seriously, same title and everything). It was pretty good then... I hope they haven't over-developed it.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Maybe the cadaver hair is getting to him.

    So is he going to play the Crypt Keeper?

  • Lindzgrl

    I'm confused about this movie's premise, considering the FDA-approved drugs to treat AIDS in America are pretty damn effective. Most people diagnosed with HIV can expect to live at least 20 to 30 years beyond the diagnosis today. Unless, of course, this has to do with cost, which is obviously a whole 'nother issue. But I would assume black market drugs are no cheaper than the pharma gouge.

  • pajiba

    Oh, sorry: The movie is set in 1986.

  • Lindzgrl

    Ohhh! Okay, that makes a lot more sense!

  • TheOriginalMRod

    What is the role? Is he going to play my dad?

  • Pookie

    Rowles, sometimes I think you write these type of articles just to find a reason to ban me. I’m not going to take the bait.

  • BWeaves

    So, is his character gay? I'm just curious.

  • Carlito

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    That's what I love about these ideal weights, man. I get thinner, they stay the same.

  • Idle Primate

    EE nomination
