Sports buff Matthew McConaugheylooked almost unrecognisable as he showed off his shrinking frame while out and about in New York, after signing up to lose 30lbs for his role as AIDS victim Ron Woodroof in The Dallas Buyer’s Club.
The actor,who is expecting his third child with wife Camila Alves, was in New York filming his latest flick,The Wolf of Wall Street, alongsideLeonardo DiCaprio, but McConaughey’s dramatic weight loss is for another movie, which starts filming in mid-September,The Dallas Buyer’s Club, based on a true story.
The new flick sees the actor take on the role of homophobic, heterosexual electricianRon Woodroof, who contracted AIDS through drug use and became an illegal trafficker of AIDS drugs.
McConaughey’s gaunt appearance is the result of an extreme diet the actor is undergoing, and he ultimately plans to lose 30lbs to completely transform himself into his character.
Of his punishing regime, he said: ‘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 my way, and it’s what I need to do for the job.’
According to reports, McConaughey’s dramatic weight loss is the result of a mainlyliquid diet.
