Ron Woodruff is a tough living Texan cowboy. He is played by actor Matthew McConaughey in the movie “Dallas Buyers Club”. It is 1985 and Woodruff’s free wheeling life is about to be turned upside down when he is diagnosed with AIDS.
It is the early days of the epidemic and Woodruff is given 30 days to live.
McConaughey lost 50 pounds to play the role but had he been looking for a part for which such a dramatic physical transformation was called for?
