The “Dallas Buyers Club” actor Matthew McConaughey has shared how he lost 50 pounds for the role.
His unusual approach involved eating nothing but fish, egg whites, tapioca pudding — and “as much wine as I wanted to drink.”
“I did not torture myself. I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice,” McConaughey said on an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which aired on October 22.
McConaughey played Ron Woodroof, a man who was diagnosed with stage 4 HIV/AIDS in the mid-1980s.
