Hey Tripican fam!
There aren’t a lot of actors willing to change drastically for a movie role. We have seen Curtis Jackson (50 Cents), Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Anne Hathawey, Halle Berry and a lot more do it, but this time we are talking about Matthew McConaughey in the real life drama, “Dalla Buyers Club“.
Matthew had to loose a whopping 3.5 Stones to play Ron Woodroof – the Texas cowboy whose life was changed in 1985 when he was diagnosed as being HIV positive and given 30 days to live. The tale follows Ron as he is rejected by family and friends and incapable of getting medical care.So, to find a way to healthier living, he seeks alternative means of medication – both legally and illegally. With this journey he then starts the Buyers Club.
Matthew McConaughey stars in Dallas Buyers Club as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts – who he once would have shunned – and established a hugely successful “buyers’ club.” Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience.
