Is Jason Jones really making an AIDS joke?

Somebody needs to grab Matthew McConaughey by the scruff of his neck and tell him to JUST STOP IT. Right now. This isn’t healthy. No Academy Award is worth the damage he is doing to his liver with this extreme weight loss. Has he never heard the story of Dustin Hoffman on the set of Marathon Man? How he decided to stay up for three nights so he could look appropriately ravaged for a scene? When he came to the set, his co-star Laurence Olivier asked him why he looked so tired?. Dustin told him he’d stayed up for three days and nights. Olivier paused for a moment, then said ”Dear boy, it’s called ACTING.” Matthew McConaughey could stand to learn that lesson. This isn’t a snuff film. You don’t REALLY HAVE TO DIE for your art. Try ACTING instead. Anyway, here he is looking creepy on the set of the upcoming movie, Dallas Buyers Club. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Still shooting scenes in New Orleans for The Dallas Buyers Club, bone-thin Matthew McConaughey’s character spent the day smoking and coughing up blood into a handkerchief. The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodroof, an electrician diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. We hope McConaughey survives the filming.
Matthew McConaughey, caught with a jumbo coffee on the New Orleans set of The Dallas Buyers Club, is fast approaching his birth weight. As you may have heard, in the film set in 1986 he plays a man stricken with AIDS who smuggles untested anti-viral meds from around the world. Does not sound like a feel-good date movie.

Now a frail-looking whisper of himself, Matthew McConaughey heads toward his hotel in New York City. The actor is in the process of losing weight for his starring role in The Dallas Buying Club, playing Ron Woodruff, the Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and was given only six months to live. Story goes that the frustrating lack of medical options back in the day prompted Woodruff to create a smuggling operation to get alternative drugs into the bodies of AIDS patients. He died in 1992. The movie co-stars Ryan Gosling. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
