Matthew McConaughey lost 40 pounds to ...

Matthew McConaughey lost 40 pounds to play AIDS victim, entrepreneur, and ad-hoc activist Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club.

...
Woodruff was a real person, an electrician from Dallas who was diagnosed with HIV in 1985 - he'd contracted the virus from a forgotten heterosexual encounter - and given 30 days to live. Dallas Buyers Club, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, shows how Woodruff fought the illness: Unable to partake in a clinical trial of the then-experimental AZT, he began obtaining the drug through back channels. Eventually, he began importing other drugs from Mexico and elsewhere, selling them at a profit to those in need, and also using them to keep himself alive. Previously, Woodruff had seen AIDS as "the gay disease.
...
Woodruff, a man with a job to do, enlists help from a number of acquaintances, usually by first taking advantage of them. They include his physician, Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner), who's dismayed when she learns Woodruff is breaking the rules but who later shifts to his side, and a fellow AIDS patient named Rayon (Jared Leto), a transsexual who, in a marvelous scene, manages to both charm and challenge the (at first) aggressively homophobic Woodruff. She beats the crap out of him in a card game played on his hospital bed; he refers to her as "Miss Man," an endearment wrapped around a jibe.
...
Sometimes the picture works as a procedural: It's fun, in a vicarious way, to watch Woodruff outwit the authorities, at one point disguised as a comically convincing priest. Woodruff's methodology is heavily dependent on his scrawny-cowboy swagger, his manner of dealing both with the people who stand in his way and with those he counts among his friends.
...
Woodruff is a great foil for her, and though the two do more fighting than platonic cooing, the bond between them is clear. Woodruff, in the days before he got sick, was a hard-drinking, girl-chasing bull rider. But with Rayon, he's always a gent - his consideration for her is almost courtly.
...
We can see McConaughey concentrating on this task as intently as Woodruff would have: Who could risk a broken bone, or even a bruise?
...
But Woodruff manages to stay on the back of that crazy-mad, snorting bull. To this mighty horned beast, he's probably as light as a gnat, and just as annoying.
