Halloween is coming up, and while most celebrities are pretty tight-lipped about what their costume is gonna be,Matthew McConaughey seems to be leaving us some pretty clear hints as to what he’s planning. Based on his weight loss, I’m thinking he’s either losing weight for a role as an AIDS-sufferer in his new movie The Dallas Buyers Club, or else he’s getting into character for an even more important role — a skeleton costume for Halloween. I’m thinking the second one is more likely, because no one takes All Hallow’s Eve more seriously than Hollywood actors. After all, what other chance to they get to dress up as someone else in a costume and make-up and everything?
Matthew’s costume seems like it’s gonna be super realistic, although he’s gonna have to increase his weight loss pace a little bit if he wants to be ready for October 31st. He’s lost about 30 pounds so far, which means he has to lose about…170 more if he wants to be down to just bones by the end of the month. It’s a lot, but he gets a vote of confidence from his wife, Camila Alves, who says:
“I’m very supportive. I’m usually the one right there saying, ‘You can’t eat this, you can’t eat that,’ but he’s very disciplined. He’s really great at it.”
She knows that even though Matthew’s body in People has put together a little gallery where you can scroll through his 30-pound weight loss in just five clicks. If you have a minute, I highly recommend it as a way to procrastinate for at least ten while you plan your own costume. I’m thinking I’ll go as the Goodyear Blimp. Can someone pass me a pie?
