Knocking out his green screen scenes, Matthew McConaughey was on the set of "Dallas Buyers Club" in New Orleans on Tuesday (December 11).
The "Lincoln Lawyer" star looked very skinny in a variety of costume changes, including a business suit and cowboy hat, a pilot uniform, and even clergy garb.
Recently, the 43-year-old actor spoke to the Huffington Post about his successful 2012.
When asked whether he considered himself underrated and taken for granted, he replied, "I never felt like something was being taken for granted. I mean, I don't dabble and spend much mind or time dealing with, I don't know, people's perceptions of me. I truly don't. I figure there are ways to be very deliberate about how you are perceived. I'm not foolish. I'm not an open book by any means. I'm smart enough not to be foolish like that. At the same time, I lead my real life. I engage in my real life. Because I choose to do that -- my choice with me where I go. Whether I'm running on the beach without my shirt or whether I'm going out with my kids or going to church or going out to dinner -- I don't choose to insulate myself in engaging in real life. Hence, the public kind of almost knows me as much through my real life that they see through the rag mags. You know what I mean?"
The laid-back Texan continued, "You know, some could argue that it's counter-intuitive to how you're perceived as a 'serious actor,' or what have you. But I chose to just go, 'I'm just going to keep doing the work.' I'm not questioning my own acting. Just keep doing the work and I'm going to keep living my life, which is kind of the mantra I'm working off of, 'just keep livin'.' I do know actors who deliberately insulate themselves from any kind of public life or being seen because they believe it's good for business. And, you know what? In a lot of ways, many of them are right."
