Actor Matthew McConaughey has been asked to lose weight to play a gaunt HIV victim in the film, The Dallas Buyers Club.

He will portray real-life American cowboy Ron Woodruff, who smuggles life-saving drugs across the Mexican border after contracting the disease in the 1980s. The actor, who recently beefed up to play a fit male stripper in Magic Mike, now has to slim down before shooting begins in September. “I’ve lost about 15 pounds, I’ve gotta lose about 15 more,” he was quoted as saying.
