Subscribe to Matthew Mcconaughey

Newlywed Matthew Mcconaughey is halfway through a drastic weightloss as he prepares to play a real-life, drug-smuggling Aids victim in his next movie.
The Magic Mike star has signed on to play Ron Woodruff, who turned to illegal drugs in a bid to combat the disease he contracted while living the high life.
MCConaughey explains, "I've lost about 16 pounds; I need to lose another 15. It's for work... I've got something coming up in the middle of September... I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing this."
Asked how he's keeping the pounds off during a recent online chat with former TV newsman Larry King, the actor reveals, "It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. Drinking a lot of tea. It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you're not going to give it something else from the outside."
And explaining more about the guy he's playing, MCConaughey adds, "In the late 80s in Dallas he was a heterosexual guy, an electrician, and he got Hiv through doing some... some time he spent with some ladies and doing some drugs."
