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.

Talk about dedication for a movie role. I'm sure he misses his gym set.

When Christian Bale did it, he was 30 years old. This seems dangerous to do when you're in your 40s. Not saying he's "too old" but just that it HAS to be harder on your body to put it through this drastic treatment .

What a fool to endanger his health for a movie. He doesn't need to make it. I've lost a lot of respect for his common sense.

What he is doing is dangerous to his own health!Money is not everything!

I'm sure he's being medically monitored, if for nothing else, for the insurance on his film, but he is so think it is frightening. If the film fails he can always be a male model because that's what most of them look like nowadays.

I find this kind of 'attitude' for a movie part sad, sick and stupid. There are many naturally thin actors, who could have used some makeup to complete the look or lost a mere 10 lbs. We see this over and over again, 'known actors' trying to get a 'good' part so they gain weight or loose it. What bothers me , well enough to write this, is the fact that many other actors could play 'those' parts without all the drama. No wonder no one takes this 'we do not care about weight' crap, because if they did they would look for actors who do not have to waste foolish time loosing or gaining weight, give the parts to actors more suited for the job.
