Matthew McConaughey Is Skin And Bones!
Hollywood has had a long history of smoke and mirrors, make up and special effects to bring a character to life. But not all actors want to use these tricks of the trade; some go the extra mile with extreme weight loss and gain. We call these actors true performers because they become the character they are portraying. TMZ has a picture of Matthew McConaughey looking as if he were on deaths door, and apparently so week that he needed the help of his Mother while leaving a church in Austin this weekend.
The normally buff 42 year old is wasting away and almost totally unrecognizable in his preparation to play Ron Woodruff in “The Dallas Buyer’s Club”. Per TMZ, “The movie is about Woodruff who contracted HIV through drug use in the ’80s and has to smuggle life-saving medications from Mexico. In this upcoming movie McConaughey plays a character that couldn’t be farther from his most recent role in Magic Mike.
Not all actors play havoc with their health to get a role or get into a character, some just get buff. Like Ryan Reynolds did for “Blade Trinity” and “Green Lantern”. Reynolds’ trainer, Bobby Storm, told WebMD the star worked out 90-minutes every day for six-to-seven months to bulk up to 200 pounds. Now that is commitment, I can’t even stay on the workout routine I set for myself and trust it’s not 90-minutes every day.
