Matt McConaughey's Weight

Hits Rock Bottom

11/12/2012 5:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A very skinny Matthew McConaughey
Matt McConaughey -- or what's left of him -- arrived at LAX this weekend looking skinnier than ever ... just as he planned.

As we previously reported, the usually buff and shirtless 42-year-old is wasting away to play Ron Woodruff in the movie "The Dallas Buyers 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.

Matthew is reportedly slated to begin production on the movie in New Orleans today ... and he's reportedly the lightest he's ever been ... down more than 30 pounds from his usual weight.

According to People.com, the actor plans to keep his current weight for another month ... and then the weight gain begins.

Starving himself to win Oscar? Nah, it's been done before. Shaving head and start in musical to get Oscar? It also has been done.

Not that gays "own" the HiV + disease, but, it seems like the nature of this movie has been spun so not to impose a sexual perversion on the sick victim...HIV+ though drug use? Let's not forget how many hundreds, and thousands of people gays and africans died from AIDS... It seems this film is out to put the disease in a more acceptable light...
It's like doing a movie about men who suffer from breast cancer...Right...There probably are a dozen or so...Maybe Matthew Mconnahay will do that for his next role...and we can all watch him grow man breasts...

So umm.. I wonder if Bodybuilder.com has a celebrity sponsorship for celebrities who will need to gain that is the opposite of the weight watchers sponsorship for celebs to lose? Seeing as though he would be dedicated without much effort if I were them I would give him a multi-million dollar deal.
