Matt Got Fat for We Are Marshall

The cast of We Are Marshall was all on hand for its West Virginia premiere in Huntington. This is the town where the film takes place. Matthew McConaughey has recently said that shooting the film was the best work experience of his life. I'm sure because the story is totally moving, but also he had to gain weight for the movie and was probably able to eat whatever he wanted. MM has been busy promoting the film which means he gets to answer lots of questions on his personal life including how he lost all of that weight. Obviously we knew the answer to that one since he was working out everyday with Lance and Jake this summer. Here's highlights:

(Also pictured: Anthony Mackie, Kate Mara, Matthew Fox)

  • On preparing for his We Are Marshall role:
    "When I did this movie, I was 16 lbs. heavier than I am now. I had a big caboose and a big belly."
  • How he lost the weight:
    "I got a new character that I'm playing now" – in the adventure-romance Fool's Gold, which he's been filming in Australia with Kate Hudson.
  • On ex-girlfriend Penelope:
    "I just saw (her new movie) Volver, in fact," he said. "She's going to get an Oscar nomination – or she should. She's incredibly excited about that film."
  • On his BFF Lance:
    "When people say to me, 'You're in great shape, you must keep up with Lance,' I start laughing. I see the back of his jersey for the first 200 yards of the ride and, after that, I don't see him again until the end."

Hopefully we'll see him and Lance back together real soon. In the meantime, we welcome pics of Matt with Matt.

I love Matthew McCounaghey. I loved that special that was on E! before Sahara came out where he drove that camper everywhere. He is great. I wish Kimberly Willams Paisley was there. West Virginia is her husband's home state.

His tan looks gross, if Lohan looked as orange as he does, everyone would be commenting on how she should lay off the fake tanner. _____________________________________________________ ~Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.~
