McConaughey seemed to transition from romantic comedies into lead roles in Mud and fan favorite Magic Mike — reaching new career heights with his portrayal of Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club.

To play Woodroof, McConaughey lost 47 pounds and submerged himself into the world of mid-80’s AIDs hysteria. His work film yielded a number of awards for the Texas native — including the Golden Globe drama award for Best Actor Drama and an Oscar for Best Actor.
