"There's nothing out there that I am chasing. I want my work to translate. Last year was an incredibly creative year of work for me... I'm looking for great experiences," quoted McConaughey as saying.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee "Dallas Buyers Club" required McConaughey to loose a lot of weight. The actor lost almost 21 kgs to fit into the perfect frame.
