Matthew McConaughey

Wasting Away ...

For New Movie Role

Matthew McConaughey is usually known for flaunting his buff and topless torso, but it was his startling gaunt new look in NYC on Thursday that had everyone's jaws dropping.

The 42-year-old is drastically losing the pounds to play Ron Woodruff in the movie "The Dallas Buyer's Club," the true story of a man who contracted HIV through drug use in the '80s and has to smuggle life-saving medications from Mexico.

From dropping trou in "Magic Mike" to now dropping pounds ... it's no question Matt is racking up an impressive body of work.

God I hope he doesn't die of a heart attack from the strain on his heart. It's not good to lose weight so fast.

HIV is a myth, does not exist. What is called HIV are cellular stress products. AIDS is easily curable. it is caused by malnutrition, drug use or by taking HIV ****tails. it is a horror and scam. I will be posting more about the technical details of this bad science and bad humanity. http://barryb911.blogspot.ca/2012/07/hiv-horror-scam-and-murder.html

I also list and "HIV" and AIDS cure: http://barryb911.blogspot.ca/2012/08/an-aids-cure.html

I hope the movie is in the can soon and he can start getting proper nutrition. He must feel like hell. I'm sure he is because of insurance but I hope he's being well monitored. That's scary. I hope there are lots of sandwiches in your future Matthew.

Shouldn't risk your life for a movie or money. It will be hard to gain it all back afterwards and health problems can exist because of it.
