McConaughey, 43, lost almost 18kg for his role in the movie, where he plays AIDS patient Ron Woodroof.

“I will have some 70 per cent beef, 30 per cent fat ground beef, maybe a half-pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese. I’ll prepare it all and I’ll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare,” quoted McConaughey as saying.

“I’m going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled. I’m going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. I want dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices,” he added.

The actor says his body has shrunk after all the dieting. “Your organs shrink (and) my stomach has shrunk as well. So, as much as I can’t wait to have that cheeseburger on the day (shooting ends), it’ll probably be damn hard to eat the whole thing,” McConaughey said. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, set in the backdrop of 1980s, The Dallas Buyer’s Club shows the struggle of Woodroof who tries to find medicine to save his life.
