"In The Dallas Buyer's Club the 43-year-old plays a "women loving, drug taking, homophobic man" named Ron Woodruff who in 1986 develops full blown AIDS and is told he has 30 days to live." To prepare, McConaughey had to lose 30 pounds and stay out of the sun, which I imagine must've been difficult for him. If there is one thing Matthew McConaughey loves, it's getting hella high, not wearing clothes, and playing bongos in the hot Texas sun.
