Matthew McConaughey reportedly dropping pounds to play character with HIV
HollywoodNews.com: Matthew McConaughey reportedly has some major work ahead of himself as it is rumored that he is going to be dropping major weight for his next movie role.
It is reported that he is going to lose about 30 pounds to play a character suffering from HIV in the film ‘The Dallas Buyers Club,’ states ICYDK. He will allegedly be playing real-life Ron Woodruff who smuggled life-saving drugs across the Mexican border after contracting HIV.
The movie is reportedly set to start filming in September.
He did previously speak with Larry King about the role: “I’ve lost about 15 pounds, I’ve gotta lose about 15 more. I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing (filming) this.”
