We know this is for a movie role, but everyone is starting to get a little concerned now.

Matthew McConaughey is playing the role of a man suffering with AIDS in the upcoming flick The Dallas Buyers Club. He's already dropped 30 pounds for the movie, but it seems like he's lost even more weight and now looks unrecognizable. He arrived at LAX airport over the weekend looking downright sick and even caused airport passengers to stop and stare without having any idea of who he was.

We're sure that no one is noticing the weight loss more than Matthew himself, but he doesn't seem to be too worried, according to the New York Daily News. He recently said the weight loss is a mental exercise more than anything else. "It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse," he said. "(I'm) drinking a lot of tea. I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on the way, and it's what I need to do for the job."

The bigger question though: how long will it take for him to get back to his fighting (i.e. Magic Mike) weight?
