Matthew McConaughey on drastic weight loss: I can’t wait to eat

By Mallory Hatten,

Matthew McConaughey has been depriving himself of food for months in order to create the look of a dying man for his role in the upcoming film The Dallas Buyer’s Club. But the actor can’t wait for the day when he bites into a big juicy bigger again.

In Touch reports that McConaughey has dropped a staggering 40 pounds since his time on set.

And what does the actor crave more than anything?

“I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese,” he reveals. “I’m going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled. I’m going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. I want kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices.”

According to ABC News, the star portrays an AIDS patient in the upcoming film and was required to drop one-fourth of his body weight.

His frail frame is a stark contrast from his otherwise toned and buff exterior, and McConaughey admits he just “can’t wait to eat!”
