We have gradually seen him remake his entire body for his latest role, and now the first pictures of Matthew McConaughey on the New Orleans set of “The Dallas Buyers Club” have been revealed.
On Sunday (November 11), the “Magic Mike” star showed off his frail figure in a t-shirt and jeans, after losing a whopping thirty pounds to play AIDS victim, Ron Woodroof.
In a previous interview with Larry King, Matthew spoke about the challenging preparation, saying, “For me, it's more of a mental thing than a physical thing … I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on the way, and it's what I need to do for the job."
The Jean-Marc Vallée-directed drama follows Woodruff’s real-life struggles to beat the life-threatening disease, as he uses alternative medicine that he imports from Mexico.
There is no specific release date just yet, but expect “The Dallas Buyers Club” to hit theaters sometime in 2013.
