Matthew McConaughey: Super Skinny LAX Departure!

Matthew McConaughey is shockingly thin while walking through security at LAX Airport on Friday (November 9) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old actor caught a flight to New Orleans to start work on his new film The Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986 was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live.

Matthew stars alongside Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto in the flick which follows his character smuggling medications into the U.S. and creating clubs to distribute them to patients.

  • Mia

    jesus christ !!! i can’t believe my eyes o_O

    he deserves a posthumous Oscar !

    sorry bale …

  • Farenough

    How far is he plainning on going? No role seems worth putting your life at risk! Being that thin/malnurished is a major starin on your organs. He faces kidney failure, dehydration, heart failure…on and on. :(

  • Gg

    Woooww i never thought mathew could look ugly guess i was wrong lol

  • Leenah

    He really want the Oscar…but Ben Affleck could take it this year..

  • an opinion

    How scary this must be for his kids. Don’t know if this is worth it. He is really trying to raise his acting career from the bad rom com death spiral.

  • deat

    He’s an idiot for doing this to himself.

  • an opinion

    @Leenah: This is it Lincoln year with Spielberg directing.. Anyway MM movie will not come out until next year. But I agree with you about him going for an Oscar.

  • Lola

    Yikes. that can’t be healthy..

  • Mandy

    I’ve just completely changed my opinion about Matthew…no person with a head on their shoulders would do this for a crappy statuette or for fame or whatever…that is just so wrong…

  • Grace

    Wow, hurts my eyes to look at these pictures…

  • Sarah.

    Well props to his dedication, I guess. But he really looks way too thin!! Good for him to keep challenging himself but don’t go too far. He looks unhealthy. Keep doing the rom coms, I like his rom coms!! I don’t think I even want to see this movie, he is scary looking thin! I can’t even look at the pictures for a second time… >.<

  • Steph

    OMG

  • JC

    Reminds me of Christian Bale in ‘The Machinist’. He was disturbingly thin. I’m sure they have nutritionists around to make sure things don’t get to a point where they are at serious risk. You have to admire the dedication to the role he’s preparing for.

  • pinkydoo

    oh no. just no

  • wywh

    Omg what kind of commitment to your career? But why couldn’t they just digitally alter his body in the film instead of doing this?

  • noprobBOB

    WOW in that 1st picture he has the look of his character down to the letter!! If this doesn’t get him an OSCAR nothing will but this shows serious commitment to his craft!

  • kelly

    Is that a “star” or a deranged serial killer.

  • jard

    it’s like a cry for help lol… Give the guy a nomination fo Magic Mike ! (Best supporting actor)

  • kelly

    He could be that tall singer from the Mamas and the Papas too.

  • Coco

    I hope this will worth to be that skinny for the role. At least he will have an Oscar nomination. Or this looks very sick and scary.

  • jennifer

    @Leenah:
    His movie will be released the next year, so Matt has chances. And Ben will be probably nominated at Best Director not Best Actor (LOL).
    However, let’s not forget Christian Bale in The Machinist where he also lost a lot of pounds, but he didn’t get anything (like not even an MTV movie award).

  • Mari

    I am not so sure if giving him an Oscar for this particular role would be a good idea. If his acting is that good in that movie…maybe. But I think it would sent out the wrong message. I also wonder if the reactions were the same if that was a woman losing so much weight. I have seen pictures of celebrity women on the net, who obviously had already been or at least on the way to becoming anorexic and people still comenting with something like “fat pig” or at least “she looks normal to me”.

  • katie

    @Mandy:

    I’m tired of these actors striving for Oscars by losing a lot of weight to prove their “dedication”. That’s how Natalie Portman got hers (along with her supposed dancing), this year it’s Anne Hathaway for her weight and hair loss in Les Mis, next year I guess it’s gonna be Matthew McConaughey. Just impress us with your ACTING, people! I’d respect it if they campaigned for their Oscars with their actual acting instead of the physical sacrifices they went through.

  • C

    I don’t think he did this just to win an Oscars, he is just doing what he needs to do as an actor & brings a true movie character & story on screen which requires him to lose tons of weight.

  • AK

    @Mia:

    NO ONE CAN BE LIKE CHRISTIAN BALE

    SORRY YOU

    AND SORRY MATT

  • Rose

    This is scary and unbelievably unhealthy. I for one hope that they don’t reward this kind of craziness with an Oscar.

  • Mariyah

    JESUS WHAT HAPPENDED TO HIM?!

  • siennagold

    Can’t wait to see the hunky Matthew back!!

  • mecM

    O____O just… give him the Oscar already. WOW

    Matthew looks pittiful and I’m sure what he’s done is bad for his health. I liked the look of him in the Dolce and Gabbana commercials. This is like watching the results of a famine.
