    Matthew McConaughey may beat/freak me out more than Christian Bale in The Machinist.

    By the time you get down to #10, he looks like a creeper you would want to avoid in a dark alley.

      I was thinking the same thing!

    • Meghan

      he looks like someone i would avoid at all costs, not just in a dark alley. lol
      very scary.
      i don't think any role is worth all of that, i hope he is still considered healthy.

    Holy cow! That's impressive. Can you imagine how hungry he must be?! I once had to go on a liquid diet for 5 days before surgery and I was CRANKY pants. Hats off to the dedication. But I hope shooting ends soon so he can go back to being yummy!

  • ale

    Wow… he really does look sick! The thing about trying something else in his career… :S

  • Bebe

    He looks like Chester the molester…

    I remember reading that when Matt Damon lost all that weight when he played the junkie soldier, he said that it caused him to have heart problems of some kind. I hope Matthew's weight loss is being monitored by a Dr.

  • Ash

    Good on him for his hard work and dedication, but I cannot wait for him to regain the weight! He looks so unhealthy :( but I guess that's part of the art. Can't say I'd be willing to do it! Hopefully he is being monitored.

    OMG that's crazy


    I dont understand why actors put themselves through this. Is it just greed for the money ??He looks really ill and no doubt has harmed his body by starving it so . Why don't producers just find a thin actor and cast them??? Its not like he is a brilliant actor or anything and they HAD to have him ????

    For a million(+) dollars, and a personal trainer, a dietist, who says NO to drop weight for a Guaranteed Role?
    It's like: work, or something? Not 'nice effort', 'not crazy': How to get a Milion Dollars.
    I have seen people working. (Not him, and YES there is an doctor involved! Also Free.)
