Matthew McConaughey Keeps Family Close While Prepping For a Big Role
Matthew McConaughey joined his mother, Kay, his pregnant wife, Camila Alves, and their kids, Levi and Vida, for church services in Austin yesterday. Matthew wore a heavy ensemble that covered up his shrinking frame. He's in the midst of losing 30 pounds for his upcoming role in The Dallas Buyer's Club, a film about an AIDS patient who smuggles alternative drugs into the country to help himself and others suffering from the disease. Matthew will be joined on the big screen by a just-added Gael Garcia Bernal.
Matthew recently told us that his first postshoot meal will be a cheeseburger, and he luckily won't have to wait much longer. Filming is set to begin in New Orleans next month with a likely wrap by the end of the year. He's been focused on spending time with his family and losing weight over the past month. He was absent from a full press push for his latest, The Paperboy, which still managed a strong showing at the box office in limited release over the weekend.
