Matthew McConaughey Weight Gain: Actor Shows Off Fuller Frame On 'True Detectives' Set

Matthew McConaughey debuted a fuller, healthier body on set this week in New Orleans for the new TV series "True Detectives," co-starring Woody Harrelson. The actor had pulled a Christian Bale last fall and dramatically shed nearly 40 pounds for the role of an HIV/AIDS patient who was given 30 days to live in the forthcoming movie "The Dallas Buyers Club," based on a true story.

"It was as difficult -- once I made up my mind to do it -- as people said or thought it would be," the 43-year-old actor said at the Critics' Choice Awards about the weight loss in January. "I got past being hungry. I think the secret [to losing weight] is don't take meetings [at] Pizza Hut. Don't put yourself under that temptation."

He's still skinny, but MUCH better than he was in December.
