Matthew McConaughey

Reduced to Skin & Bones

10/8/2012 4:17 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

Matthew McConaughey looks skinny after weight loss.Looking even more emaciated and gaunt than before, a frail Matthew McConaughey was barely recognizable as he -- with the help of his mother Kay -- left a church in Austin this weekend.

As TMZ previously reported, the normally buff and shirtless 42-year-old is wasting away 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.

It doesn't look like just weight loss to me. He has so much money he doesn't need rolls like this.

He looks like an English Lord who's favorite yacht has just been impounded.

No amount of money you could give to do this much damage to my body. This could have irrepairable damage to his body that may not show up right now....

How irresponsible of him! He has young children! This is not healthy physically and it's an absolutely terrible example he's setting for his children...This is sick...

Sorry not impressed. Just stupid. Tom Hanks did that 20 years ago. Is he looking for an Oscar? Hope your organs apprieciate the possible Oscar nod.


It's an old story. The Ryan White Story was a real story. Hanks played a gay guy who got fired because of aides hes's going to play a drug user getting aides. Ryan White got aides from a blood transfusion.

Americans are sofa king stupid. It is insane to emaciate your body for a film role, just to entertain a mindless public. Paying money to see it is a stupid society.

There is not a movie part in the world to risk my total health for. He is flat out stupid. He has a beautiful wife and new family. They are more important than ANY movie role.

This role is going to kill him. Remember Heath Ledger anyone? He needs to stop...now. And BTW, I won't see this movie even if he does survive to make it.
