Forget Jessica Simpson and Weight Watchers, the real weight loss story in Hollywood is the guy with the Texas drawl.
Matthew McConaughey has recently stepped out, revealing his new and painfully skinny look. The actor has been busy drastically slimming down for a role as an AIDS victim in the film The Dallas Buyer’s .
And, while whatever intensive weight loss regiment McConaughey is employing seems to working, the results seem to push the limits of what seems like a healthy career choice.
Photos taken of the actor on an off day from shooting in Austin, Texas, highlight the scary situation and the remains of the actor’s healthy Magic Mike body that once was.
He was snapped leaving a Sunday church service with his arm around his mother, Mary, who literally seemed to be supporting Matthew from toppling over from weakness.
In the shots, skin hangs from Matthew’s face. His eyes are sunken and his signature cheekbones and Adam’s apple are more pronounced than usual with no meat to fill the space between his outer layer and skeleton.
In his right hand is a couple of tea, which he previously admitted to incorporating in his quick slim program.
But, despite the shocking appearance, we were warned going into the endeavor that Matthew was commited to the role, which required him to drop 30 pounds.
As Hollyscoop previously reported, the actor spoke about the his upcoming slim down during an interview with Larry King.
“I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on my way, and it's what I need to do for the job,” he said, adding “I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing this.”
Mission accomplished, Matthew... Unfortunately. At the time of the interview, the actor had already lost 15 pounds.
Meanwhile, as Matthew continues to wither away to dust, his wife Camila’s baby bump is growing every day. The couple announced the pregnancy earlier this summer. It will be their third child together.
The Dallas Buyer’s is expected to arrive in theaters in 2013.
