Matthew McConaughey is dreaming of a greasy cheeseburger after shedding 40 pounds to play an AIDS victim in his latest movie "The Dallas Buyer's Club."
The usually buff actor has committed to a starvation diet to lose the weight for the film role and fans have been stunned by his emaciated frame.

McConaughey admits he faces a struggle getting back to his ideal weight once filming wraps, but he's going to celebrate with a burger.

He tells HitFix.com, "I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half-pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese. I'll prepare it all and I'll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare.
"I'm going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled. I'm going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann's real mayonnaise. I want kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices.
"Your organs shrink [and] my stomach has shrunk as well. So, as much as I can't wait to have that cheeseburger on the day [shooting ends], it'll probably be damn hard to eat the whole thing."
I don't understand someone starving themself so they can look as bad as he looks just for a role. He
has so much to offer just looking his regular self. Hope his health does not suffer for it.
