Tom Hanks helped Matthew McConaughey lose weight

Oct 16 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Tom Hanks helped Matthew McConaughey lose 50 pounds.

The 'Dallas Buyers Club' star revealed he called the two-time Oscar winner for advice before slimming down to play real-life AIDS victim Ron Woodroof in the new film.

He told People.com: "I actually called Tom and had a great conversation with him about what he learned about losing weight for 'Philadelphia' and 'Cast Away.' And I consulted a nutritionist about the best way to do this."

The 43-year-old actor was 185 lbs. before the drama and was determined to shock people with his transformation.

He said: "I was going around and people were going, 'Hey, are you feeling all right?' But then I hit 135 lbs. I ran in to somebody and they didn't just ask if I was all right, they said, 'My God, we need to get you some help.' And I thought, 'There we go. That's the perfect spot.' "

Matthew, who has two sons, Levi, five, and Livingston, eight months, and daughter Vida, three, with his wife Camila, isn't worried that the weight loss will affect his health in the long run.

He said: "I fed myself good food, just not much of it. I found through this journey that the human body is much more resilient than we give it credit for.

"Somebody told me they heard a story about how I didn't have any energy on set, but I was kind of uncontainable with energy. All the acuity, energy and power I lost from the neck down transferred to the neck up."

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015 Official Coverage - Day 3
It was only a few months ago that analysts had, foolishly it would seem, branded Disney's live-action adventure 'Maleficent' as a flop, and that was even before it had been released in cinemas. However, after a strong opening and consistent debut week and beyond, the stattos were left scratching their heads at the impressive $697 million it has made to date, from a $180 million budget. But what's more impressive is that 'Malefi ...

Floyd Mayweather Has a Love Misunderstood

Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Marcos Maidana - Press Tour
Floyd Mayweather said he is actually friends with Justin Bieber and not just pretending to like Justin Bieber like the rest of the people who like Justin Bieber. Mayweather was offended when it was suggested otherwise, as if him and Biebs used to hustle in the same crew back in the D in the late 80′s: “To me, that’s kind of racial profiling” Clearly Mayweather does not understand what that term means. ...

Reese Witherspoon in the first trailer for “Wild”: awesome or disappointing?

Q Live In Portland Show
Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail was one of my favorite reads last year. I loved the unassuming way that Strayed told the story of how she hiked 1,000 miles following her divorce and the loss of her mother. Strayed never seemed like she was bragging or exaggerating, just like she was explaining how she overcame a very difficult transitional period by challenging herself. I came away admiring Strayed and feeling like I understood what ...
