The movie “Dallas Buyer’s Club” is getting a fair amount of critical acclaim already. People have said that Matthew McConaughy may have delivered one if not the best performance of his career. For those who don’t know the movie is about the story of Texas electrician Ron Woodroof and his battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies after being diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986, and his search for alternative treatments that helped established a way in which fellow HIV-positive people could join for access to his supplies.
The movie stars McConaughy as Woodroof and Jared Leto as transgender character Rayon. In the video above you’ll hear excerpts from cast members (including Leto and McConaughy) talking about the weight transformation that both Leto and McConaughy went through for this film.
Jared Leto warns viewers to never try to wax their bodies at home while looking into the camera. It was a funny moment but goes to show how far these guys went to get their roles down correctly. Enjoy the clip!
