Matthew McConaughey’s Dramatic Weight Loss
There are some Hollywood stars who really get into their roles. Daniel-Day Lewis reportedly became Abraham Lincoln during the filming of the new movie “Lincoln” and Matthew McConaughey lost a whopping 38 pounds in order to play AIDS patient, Ron Woodroof, in The Dallas Buyers Club. The actor admits it was no easy task.
”Getting past 170 was really hard, but then once you get into the 167, the next 7 come off easy. Getting past 160, really hard. But then you fly down to 150. Getting past 150 was really hard. And then, bam, got down to 143 and that’s where I want to be. Once you get past the plateau, the body seems to understand, ‘OK this is where we’re living now, this is where we are,’ so the energy rises.”
But don’t worry, the hunky star says that once the filming is done he plans to resume his normal eating habits although he admits it won’t be easy.
The organs shrink, so my stomach has shrunk as well. So as much as I can’t wait to have that cheeseburger, on the day, it’ll be damn hard to eat the whole thing.”
