Matthew McConaughey Looks Gorgeous For Variety, Almost Wasn’t Considered For ‘Dallas Buyers Club’
After consecutive years of success, he took a self-imposed hiatus. The actor shared his experience refusing great jobs. “I would get sent things and the paychecks were great, and I would say no. Then, they quit sending them altogether.”
His message finally got through. Countless refusals may have helped him, but how?
While speaking to Variety, he opened up about how new people began taking interest in them. He explained, “all of a sudden, I became a good idea for people like William Friedkin and Steven Soderbergh — people who hadn’t called before, who maybe wouldn’t have seen me as a good idea three years before.”
With the two previously mentioned men, he acted in Killer Joe and Magic Mike. The latter film is getting a sequel. Who’s willing to see Dallas back in this lighthearted film?
Now, of course, we know McConaughey was the right actor for the role.
The diet he chose to lose forty pounds isn’t as nearly as scary as it seems. “I ate well. Just very small amounts. Five ounces of fish, twice a day. Cup of vegetables, twice a day. The secret is, I gave myself four months,” the actor shared. See? Not too bad.
