The thinnification of celebs in Hollywood is usually reserved for post break-up actresses or the occasional B-lister trying to get the big skinny-leading-lady roles. Think: Jennie Garth and Ashley Greene respectively.
But rarely do we see an male artist go this far for a role..barring Christian Bale who seems to reveal in it.
It was expected that Matthew McConaughey would lose some weight for his role as an AIDS patient in The Dallas Buyers Club. Maybe the visual of it is just shocking because he was pure boho muscle before and now he is an unhealthy twig about to snap in half.
In the flick, McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, an electrician who is diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 but ends up saving his own life with a series of alternative medicines that he imports into the U.S. from Mexico.
I think I like him better in crappy Kate Hudson rom-coms.
