Method actors—thespians who physically, mentally or emotionally dive into a particular role—are nothing new to Hollywood. However, is Matthew McConaughey’s drastic new weight loss for his upcoming role in The Dallas Buyer’s Club a little too extreme?

McConaughey dropped over 30 pounds from his usual chiseled physique in preparation to play an AIDS patient with only 30 days to live. Here’s a picture of him at LAX the other day below:

According to sources, doctors are beginning to worry, even warning him that he has to slowly add the weight back on or risk suffering serious health conditions.

We understand going all out for a role, but we hope homeboy isn’t risking his well-being for a script.
