I've lost about 16 pounds. I need to lose about another 15. Matthew McConaughey shows off his 16-pound weight loss and said he's not done dropping the pounds. Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. The reason behind his dramatic slim down is in today's PopSugar Rush. It's Matthew McConaughey in the Big Apple looking much smaller than his usual muscular self. The Killer Joe star's suited up for this second night in the road to promote the film, PopSugar editor Brittney Stephens is here to fill us in on Matthew's shrinking frame. Hey Brit! Hey. So what is the deal with Matthew's weight loss? Well, it's for his upcoming role in the film, The Dallas Buyer's Club. He's playing a man named, Ron Woodroof who can track HIV. So he said that he's not supposed to look healthy. He certainly looks different. He's in Jon Stewart and with Matthew appeared on The Daily Show on Tuesday. So, let's watch that. Are you wearing a big suit? What is going on? Yeah. Check here. If that is a hold up. Oh my god. He 's not the first actor to lose a lot of weight for a role, but how is Matthew going about it? Well he said that he really dared himself to do this, and he's kind of treating it as a spiritual and mental plan and he's been drinking a lot of tea. He said that the first 10 days were definitely the toughest and that he hasn't been this thin since he was in high school. Well, Matthew is obviously sporting a much slimmer figure, while his wife Camila Alves has been accentuating her more fuller pregnant frame. We even saw her in a really hot dress recently. Yeah, she looks great. She hits the red carpet with Matthew for a screening of Killer Joe on Monday. Their whole family is in town, and they're really excited for this third baby on the way. And Matthew said that there was a lot of singing and dancing by his son, Levi and his daughter, Vida when they announced the news. Looks cute. Thank you for this detail. Thanks.
