Matthew McConaughey is unrecognizable and looking shockingly skinny! The days of watching Matthew pumping iron and running with his shirt off on the beach looking sexy are over! RumorFix can show you from these photos how severely emaciated he looks.
The 42-year-old frail actor was spotted Sunday with several family members including his Brazilian model wife Camila Alves who is currently expecting their third child in Austin, Texas.
McConaughey has been losing weight over the last few months to play real-life AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in a upcoming movie, The Dallas Buyer’s Club.
The Dallas Buyer’s Club tells the story of Woodroof, a homophobic heterosexual electrician who died in 1992 after illegally smuggling HIV drugs not approved in the states.
Matthew has been losing so much weight for the role — he actually looks weak and unhealthy. A far fry from his usually super-fit shirtless six pack.
It didn’t matter that Matthew was covered up wearing baggy jeans, a loose-fitting navy cardigan and a red scarf, you could still notice how gaunt his face looks. He even appeared to be struggling walking while he put his arm around his mother Mary.
The Magic Mike star spoke on Larry King’s Ora TV web series, where he admitted the strict diet has already taken a toll on his health: “I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing (filming) this.
“It’s a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. [I’m] drinking a lot of tea. It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you’re not going to give it something else from the outside.”
