Dear Matthew McConaughey, do us a favour and please have some all-you-can-eat buffet.
The 42-year-old actor, who is known for his active lifestyle and engraved physique, has looked gaunt and weak in recent photos due to the drastic weight loss, but that is all part of his plan. “I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing this”, he told Larry King’s Ora TV web series “Larry King Now” in July:

Nevertheless, the “Magic Mike” star continues to blow us with his diminishing weight. (Source)
He was spotted earlier this week going to church in Austin, Texas with his family. Wearing a blue cardigan, button-up shirt and a newsboy cap, his cheeks are sunken in, his muscular body is gone and he has a small mustache.
The hot actor has lost about 30 pounds to star in “The Dallas Buyer’s Club“, a real-life drama based on a Texas man (McConaughey) with AIDS in the 1980s who treated himself with alternative treatments he smuggled from Mexico into the United States.
A source tells that reports he achieved the startling transformation through an all-liquid diet are false. “There are liquids, but there are also vitamins and small portions of protein throughout the day”, the source said. (Source)
The shooting will begin next week in Shreveport, La. Scenes of McConaughey’s character dying will be shot first. The actor will slowly put back on the weight to shoot scenes that show in his character in better health when he was initially diagnosed with HIV and AIDS.
Of course, losing weight for movie roles is nothing new, and actors have gone far further than McConaughey’s 30lbs. For his role in ‘The Machinist’, Oscar winner Christian Bale lost 62lbs on a diet of one cup of black unsweetened coffee and an apple, a day.
He’s alright, peeps. Matthew is okay!
