Matthew McConaughey: Bloody Mustache on Set

Matthew McConaughey sports a bloody lip and full mustache on the set of his new film The Dallas Buyer’s Club on Monday (November 12) in New Orleans, La.

The 42-year-old actor kept his super skinny frame covered up in a loose shirt and later with a jacket covering himself up.

In case you missed them, check out pictures of Matthew going through airport security and looking shockingly thin.

In the film, Matthew is playing a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986 was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live.

    OH SHIT.

  • Yaddle

    Is he playing the lead in “The Keira Knightley Story?”

  • Ellgy

    Geez, he looks as bad as Christian Bale did in ‘The Machinist’. This can be very distracting when you are watching the movie. You can be so shocked by the actor’s appearance, it’s all you focus on.

  • Yaddle


    A lot of these “actors” think that doing such drastic things for a role will guarantee an Oscar. It’s not even really acting, they just altered their bodies. This movie will probably flop; sounds incredibly boring. Poor Matt, he did all this for nothing.

  • miss infamous

    why would he risk his health when he has 2 kids and one on the way?!

  • Yaddle

    @miss infamous:

    Because actors self-centered. Matty is probably thinking of the Oscar that he thinks he will get but won’t. No one will see this boring movie.

  • lucy

    some one take that man to a hospital today

  • Kara

    Why is he trying so hard to be taken seriously as an actor? Everyone knows what kind of actor he is and always will be.

  • Bitter Old Queen


    He doesn’t realize his an average actor at best. He thinks he is Laurence Olivier. After this film bombs, he”l go back to spending all day at the beach and playing the bongos nude.

    @Yaddle: it’s an urban legend

    Sally Field lost and gained 25 pounds and no one write that she did it for an Oscar

    McConaughey lost weight because his character is sick

  • Yaddle


    If I want clarification from you, I will let you know. In the meantime, up yours, toots.

  • amanda

    @carrie: Sally is a talented/beatiful MOVIE STAR. Mathew is known for his looks not acting. His movies are usually the Sunday afternoon types of movies.

  • Bitter Old Queen


    Finally, an intelligent comment from someone. Well said, Amanda.

  • carrie

    @amanda: see BERNIE,MUD,PAPERBOY or KILLER JOE (his last movies in clear)
    you ‘ll see that he’s a better actor since he read the script before the paycheck

  • Carolyn

    He has gone far beyond the call of duty to look like this for a movie role. Not healthy.

  • amanda

    @carrie: You actually proved my point, thank you. The movies you listed are 4 movies that obviously didn’t do well. I don’t even remember hearing about them.

  • Carolyn

    HE did well in those movies and gained respect as a serious actor. Box
    Office isn’t the barometer to use when you judge acting.

  • KissThis

    I seriously cannot f * c k i n g wait for this movie!!!! Too excited!! And with Jared Leto in it?!?!? Hot d4mn! I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

  • Black-Dahlia

    @amanda: Maybe that’s because you’re not an Alpha nor Omega.

  • wanda

    There is a time in an actor’s career where he decides he should stop making dumb romantic comedies with Kate Hudson and focus on real movies.
    Unfortunately, this won’t do for an Oscar.

  • Woody

    Matthew is a very basic actor at best and ruining his health for a role won’t make him any better.

  • fitforfun

    WOW! Now he`s really hottttt!!!!I don`t prefere all these muscules !Look at him now-sooooo hot!!!!WOW
