OMG! Matthew McConaughey Is Almost Unrecognizable

Believe it or not — you are looking at “The Sexiest Man Alive for 2005.”

Matthew McConaughey is taking his new role seriously — so much so that he’s lost all his muscle and looks emaciated.

The 43-year-old actor is playing AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in an upcoming movie, The Dallas Buyer’s Club.

The Dallas Buyer’s Club tells the story of Woodroof, a homophobic heterosexual electrician who died in 1992 after illegally smuggling HIV drugs not approved in the states.

The movie star was photographed while leaving LAX on Friday — look how different he looks from just four months ago.
