Matthew McConaughey is basically a pro at transforming his body for movie roles!

In 2013, The Sea of Trees star lost 40 pounds to play a character with AIDS in The Dallas Buyers Club — and won an Oscar for his troubles!

Sporting a freshly bald head and dad bod physique, McConaughey looked unrecognizable playing businessman Kenny Wells, who teams up with a geologist to find gold deep in the Indonesian jungle!
