Matthew McConaughey Risks Health For Role

It was one thing for us to lose the Matthew McConaughey gave us goosebumps in the future Oscar-winning Magic Mike!

But could we lose Magic Matthew altogether???

The Sahara just continues to shed the weight for his role as an HIV patient in The Dallas Buyers Club.

He was spotted at the LSU Rodeo in Baton Rouge this weekend wearing baggy clothes and looking as skinny as we've seen him.

We really hope they are keeping a close eye on him on set. He says he's still healthy, but he looks anything but!

Maybe he just really is that good an actor?

    Funny how it is such a big deal when men loose weight for a role, yet women have to maintain an unnatural thinness at all times to get any roles at all. This is pretty extreme though.

    extremely committed actor. I am impressed. I've dumped 50 lbs in about 2 years. his loss has been in a few months. very little food and lots of vitamins im sure. PERVez your drama is just horse shit.

    This is so irresponsible of him. He has 2 children he needs to be there for. It's just a fucking movie. I refuse to see it just because he is going to such extremes. Absurd!!!!!

    He looks frightening. I hope he's able to reclaim his former vigor after all this, assuming he makes it through. @v@!

    Getting too too thin can cause heart trouble. Karen Carpenter, for example.

    LOL he's desperate to get awards. But would the awards be for acting or for weight loss? I mean if you have to actually make yourself look ill to play somebody who's ill then you cant be a great actor. Good make up and acting ability wouldve sufficed.

    Re: @v@ – but he's hoping to die clutching an Oscar!

    What a DUMBO….Losing weight just to appear right for a movie role. He wants to be taken seriously as an actor? Then don't appear in CRAP like Magic Mike, ya Twit ! How stupid is he ?

    This is red dedication to his craft. Most of you have probably never seen a real person suffering from AIDS and knew what it was. This man looks like a real patient who is in the end stages. His look alone will surely afford him any awards he may be up for from this role.
