WATCH: Here's Why Matthew McConaughey Just Lost 16 Pounds For An Upcoming Role

McConaughey’s dramatic weightloss is for an upcoming role in “The Dallas Buyer’s Club,” in which the actor will play electrician Ron Woodroof, who contracts AIDS in 1986 and subsequently delves into the world of unapproved HIV drugs.
