Matthew McConaughey's "Magic Mike" days are long gone.

We've watched the once-buff star shrink over the past several months, but the latest photos of the committed actor are even more startling.

McConaughey, 43, is going through the major physical transformation -- a roughly 30-pound weight-loss -- for his forthcoming role in "The Dallas Buyers Club," in which he plays an HIV/AIDS patient.

“I’m playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn’t. For me, it’s more of a mental thing than a physical thing,” McConaughey told Us Weekly in August. “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.”

Look out for "The Dallas Buyers Club," which also stars Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner, in 2013.
