Matthew McConaughey seems to be still be flying high. The Oscar-winning actor was the main attraction at the 28th American Cinematheque Award ceremony last night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. He was in attenance with his Brazilian wife Camila Alves. A long list of A-list stars showed up to honor the actor.

As per the award’s Wiki, “The American Cinematheque Award annually honors “an extraordinary artist in the entertainment industry who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion pictures”.”

Hey, the dude just bagged an Academy Award win for Best Actor, so we had to show Matthew McConaughey some love! Plus, if you haven’t seen him in working his mojo in the “Dallas Buyers Club,” the film is definitely worth checking out. You’ll be blown away.

He played it pretty cool rocking a newsboy hat, leather jacket and bright red Pumas as he parked his ride and walked into a Los Angeles medical building.

Also, when you want to waste time, we got your back! Make sure you check out other Parking Lot Catwalkers! OW!

With a total of six Academy Award nominations, ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ is pretty much guaranteed to have a big night. I have a feeling Matthew McConaughey will score the coveted Best Actor award, although ’12 Years a Slave’ actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is very deserving of the honor, as well.

With the help of all the award-season buzz, the cast including Matthew McConaughey (with wife Camila Alves) and co-star Jared Leto are getting to travel the world in order to do some promotional work ahead of premieres in different markets. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you check it out while it’s still in theaters! Chop, chop!

With just a week or so away from his anxiously awaited film ‘Dallas Buyers Club‘, I hope Camila Alves and hubby Matthew McConaughey are ready for a seemingly endless trips down the red carpet at upcoming premieres and award shows. On that note, rack one up for Matthew McConaughey because he already one in the Best Actor category at last night’s 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards for his portrayal of Ron Woodroof in the Jean-Marc Vallée-directed drama.

Aside from ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, which hits theaters on November 1, Matthew McConaughey other flick hitting theaters next month is none other than ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘, which is directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Needless to say, there are some real doozies set for release over the next couple months, let’s see which film will win the hearts of audiences & critics alike as we head into award season.

‘Dallas Buyers Club’ trailer:

Plot (Source: Wiki):

In 1986 Dallas, homophobic drug addict party boy Ron Woodroof is diagnosed with HIV and is given 30 days to live. He started taking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved AZT, the only legal drug available in the U.S, which brought him to the brink of death. To survive, he smuggled anti-viral medications from all over the world, but still illegal in the U.S. Other AIDS patients sought out his medications forgoing hospitals, doctors, and AZT. With the help of his doctor, Eve Saks (Garner) and a fellow patient, Rayon, Ron created the Dallas Buyers Club, one of the dozens which would form around the country, providing its paying members with these alternative treatments. The clubs, growing in numbers and clientele, were brought to the attention of the FDA and pharmaceutical companies, which waged an all out war on Ron.

Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves: ‘Mud’ Screening in NYC

Reese Witherspoon’s DUI kind of overshadowed the whole “Mud” premiere on Sunday evening in NYC, so we wanted to show some love to Matthew McConaughey, his sexy housekee—I mean–WIFE Camila Alves & Matthew McConaughey’s psychedelic suit! You have to be a total pimp in order to rock that thing in public & I think it’s safe to say that the former Stetson model-turned-future Oscar winner fits the bill.

Matthew McConaughey, who’s coincidentally also represented by Reese’s power-agent hubby Jim Toth, plays the lead role in “Mud.” As he walked the red carpet, he was asked about his thoughts on the DUI, but he played it safe by simply saying, “I’m not going to comment on that because it’s too fresh.”

Anyway, here’s more about the film:

Mud is a coming-of-age drama centered around two fourteen-year-old boys who encounter a mysterious fugitive hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Intrigued by this man, they enter into a pact to help him evade capture and reconnect with the love of his life. Though it is hard for the boys to discern truth from fiction when it comes to Mud, it isn’t long until their small Arkansas town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of hunters in tow. Source

HOLY GOD! Matthew McConaughey & Jared Leto Better Get An Oscar For “Dallas Buyers Club”

We’ve all been following Matthew McConaughey’s near-frightening transformation into to his character for his upcoming film ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, but don’t leave Jared Leto out the transformation convo!! The 40-year-old “American Psycho” star was spotted on the set in New Orleans in full drag as she filmed scenes alongside co-star Matthew McConaughey. The film also stars Jennifer Garner, but judging by her recent candid photos, she isn’t going through any sort of crazy physical transformation (that we can notice).

I would love to get Camilla Alves‘ take on her hubby’s change of physique. Let’s face it, Matthew McConaughey looks like a completely different person than the one we’ve watched run around shirtless in pretty much every other film in his career. It’s pretty fucking crazy, to say the least.

For those of you who don’t know much about the upcoming drama, here’s some plot action:

Loosely based on the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986 was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live. He started taking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved AZT, the only legal drug available in the U.S, which brought him to the brink of death. To survive, he smuggled non-toxic, anti-viral medications from all over the world, but yet still illegal in the U.S. Other AIDS patients sought out his medications forgoing hospitals, doctors and AZT. With the help of his Doctor, Eve Saks and a fellow patient, Rayon, Ron unintentionally created the Dallas Buyers Club, the first of dozens which would form around the country, providing its paying members with these alternative treatments. The clubs, growing in numbers and clientele, were brought to the attention of the FDA and pharmaceutical companies which waged an all out war on Ron. “DBC” follows Ron Woodroof’s personal fight to survive which lasted 2191 days when he died on September 12, 1992, six years after he was diagnosed with the HIV virus.

Matthew McConaughey Thins Down For Upcoming Film “The Dallas Buyer’s Club”

Matthew McConaughey may have looked perfectly buff and chiseled in this summer’s male stripper hit Magic Mike but he’s certainly working overtime now to look anything but stripper perfect. Check out the latest photo of him snapped just days ago outside of a New York City hotel where he looks almost shockingly gaunt and rail skinny. McConaughey has lost 30 pounds thus far for his upcoming role as Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986, in the upcoming film Dallas Buyer’s Club.

McConaughey recently told Larry King, “I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing (the role). I just kinda dared myself. I haven’t been this light since I was in the ninth grade. I’m kind of looking at it as sort of a cleanse, it’s a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. I’m drinking a lot of tea, and things like that.”
