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

People strugglig with eating disorders do not need this shoved in their face. Too much of our society is focused on weight. people are dying. Consider me an EX fan Matthew.

Uh oh i am screwed    

I think it is disgusting. No movie role is worth what this is doing to his body. It is not healthy and there will be long term ramifications from this.

You have to be seriously mentally f'd up in the head to do something like this for a movie or for any reason.

I used to love him and Anne Hathaway but since they have done this I have lost all respect for them. No movie role is worth starving yourself and its sends the wrong message.
