"I'm playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn't," McConaughey said, according to the Daily Mail. "For me, it's more of a mental thing than a physical thing. I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on my way, and it's what I need to do for the job."

"It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. I'm drinking a lot of tea. It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off itself, and that you're not going to give it something else from the outside. I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing this."
