Matthew recently spoke to Us Weekly about his weight loss for his upcoming film The Dallas Buyer’s Club.

“I’m playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn’t. For me, it’s more of a mental thing than a physical thing,” Matthew shared. “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.”

just as Charles answered I’m dazzled that anyone can get paid $7385 in a few weeks on the computer. did you look at this webpage (Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/8Uxod

He’s going for the Oscar with this movie

# 8

He’s almost not recognizable.
Gosh.
I hope this doesn’t ruin his health.

# 9

And this is called ACTING and devotion to perform. Compare his movie creations and all these Disney actors wannabe.

So stupid.

His movie career had become a joke with all those lousy rom coms. Now he is striving for legitimacy.

an opinion @ 10/13/2012 at 9:28 am

Or should I say starving for legitimacy.

he is so stupid for doing this. Is a movie worth getting organ failure for?

An Oscar is not worth this kind of starvation.
He looks like he’s trying to kill himself.
Ego.

@ThankU: @Jim: you don’t win Oscar for losing weight:it’s an urban legend!

I can’t believe that he was ”Sexiest Man Alive” in 2005. He looks so old and absolutely not handsome anymore.

wait…what?he is not done losing weight?seriously dangerous and not worth anything…much less a stupid oscar.

Uhm..he looks really bad,I remember Jared Leto puttin on 60 pounds for a movie that nobody watched,I hope this isn’t the case with Matthew,it would be a shame.

@Leenah:

Well, I did watch Chapter 27 so nope, not “nobody” ;) but I agree, those extremes are crazy !! Jared finished the movie in a wheelchair because of it.. I just hope for Matthew that’s not gonna happen to him..

I am an Italian fan of Matthew, but I am really shocked seeing him so thin.
I understand that he has lost so much weight because of a charachter in a movie, but I think of him in the past I can’t almost recognize him.
It ‘s not only a question of physical weight loss but if you look at his eyes are completely different from the Matthew we all know.

He was so sexy and beautiful before, hope he will be back the same very soon, because I do not like him now.

He already looks like he’s dying. I saw Tom Hanks in Philadelphia and he didn’t look this bad and he had on makeup too.

If you want to see thin check out Christian Bale in The Machinest. Scary skinny.
I’m surprised he’s still wearing his wedding ring. It must be so loose. When I lose or gain weight I can feel it in my fingers.

There’s a difference in losing weight and being a healthy weight. When trying to lose weight you must be careful to lose fat and not muscle. That means a combination of exercise to build muscle, and eating the right foods to lose fat.
