Los Angeles, April 30 - Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey says he found it tough to diet for a leaner look for his new movie Dallas Buyers Club.
McConaughey play Aids victim Ron Woodroof in the film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallee.
It was tough going, I'm not going to lie. The dieting was pretty hardcore. I was losing 7 lbs - every week, femalefirst.co.uk quoted McConaughey as saying.
I'd have a diet coke, two egg whites in the morning, a piece of chicken, then another diet coke. That was rough, he said.
I got down to nine-and-a-half stone - and I was always hungry, and irritable. My body resembled a little baby bird with its mouth open, crying 'feed me, feed me' and you realise momma bird ain't going to feed you. It's hard, he said.
