Whoa Skinny! Matthew McConaughey Getting Into New Movie & Losing Lots of Weight (Photos)


What a dramatic change!

Matthew McConaughey was spotted out in New York today, but even I had to take a double look at these pictures because he is so skinny!

We are used to seeing Matthew fit and buff so this is quite a change. Especially since his last role in Magic Mike he was a picture-perfect image of fitness and muscles.

So, what’s with the change? Don’t worry ladies, he’s not sick but he is drastically losing weight — on purpose for an upcoming movie role. Matthew will be playing the lead part in the movie The Dallas Buyer’s Club. This film is based on the life of Ron Woodroof, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS 1986.
