Matthew McConaughey Gains 47 Pounds and Turns Into “Captain Fun”

For his role in Gold, Matthew McConaughey had to gain incredible 47 lbs! This is not the first time the actor had to change his physical appearance completely for the role. His transformation for Dallas Byers Club was amazing – he lost 38 pounds back then!

With the kind of experience he has, we don’t doubt he will have the discipline to shed all those extra pounds after they serve him the purpose.
