McConaughey’s 10-day fast post Gold shoot

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood star Matthew McConaughey (right) said he went on a 10-day fast af­ter film­ing Gold.

The 47-year-old ac­tor was able to re­lax his work­out regime and piled on nearly 50 pounds to play prospec­tor Kenny Wells in the new movie and while he had fun gain­ing weight, he found slim­ming down af­ter­wards much harder and had to take dras­tic mea­sures to shock his body.

“Putting it on was eas­ier and fun — cheese­burg­ers, beer, what­ever I wanted. Tak­ing it off, I did a 10-day fast just to kick-start my body into say­ing, ‘Oh we’re go­ing without!’”

McConaughey, who lost al­most 40 pounds for his Os­car-win­ning per­for­mance in Dal­las Buy­ers Club, said Kenny is his favourite char­ac­ter he’s ever played, but his mother didn’t share his en­thu­si­asm.
