Matthew McConaughey: Gaining weight was hard
By Tribute News on January 8, 2014 | 1 Comment
Matthew McConaughey found it harder re-gaining the weight he lost for Dallas Buyers Club than he did losing it. The 44-year-old actor underwent a crazy transformation for the physically demanding role as aids sufferer Ron Woodroof, shrinking from his ripped beach physique to a gaunt frail frame by losing around 50 pounds. Surprisingly, the Failure to Launch star admitted that he found returning to his original weight more difficult than dropping it. He told Hollyscoop: ''I gained 45 [pounds] of them back. The gaining was trickier than the losing. It's more fun, but it's also trickier. The first big meal that you eat, your body remembers that it lived at 182 pounds and it wants to sprint back and you have to pull the reins and go, 'Woah! We gotta take it easy.' It's a marathon.''
