After watching Matthew McConaughey lose all that weight, now we know why! The trailer for the Dallas Buyers Club is out, and it’s amazing!
After fearing his wasting frame was getting out of hand, we can now appreciate its’ purpose. . . But eat something for Pete’s sake!
In the new trailer for the Dallas Buyers Club, we can finally catch a glimpse of Matthew McConaughey’s incredible tour-de-force playing a man diagnosed with HIV.
Indeed, McConaughey shed nearly 40 pounds to portray Ron Woodroof, a man diagnosed with HIV in 1985, who began smuggling alternative treatment medicine from Mexico with the help of an HIV-positive transgender woman, Rayon (played by Jared Leto). Leto himself lost nearly 30 pounds for the role!
McConaughey has previously stated that losing the weight was difficult, and he hit many plateaus during the process, but overall he was feeling good but with “35 percent less energy.”
Dallas Buyers Club also stars Jennifer Garner as Dr. Eve Saks and was directed by Canadian Jean-Marc Vallée, who’s also directed C.R.A.Z.Y. and The Young Victoria. The film is scheduled to hit theatres on Nov. 1.
Check out the trailer and let us know what you think. Will you be watching this potential Oscar contender?
