Matthew McConaughey Is Dreaming of the Perfect Cheeseburger

Posted on


Matthew McConaughey has dieted himself down to skin and bones for an upcoming movie, but when the five-week shoot is over, he’s gunning for one thing: a po boy sandwich.

But if that can’t be found, McConaughey, 43, says that he’ll settle on a perfect cheeseburger, describing his decadent post-weight-loss meal down to the condiments.

“I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese,” McConaughey, who is starring in the independent film, The Dallas Buyer’s Club, tells “I’ll prepare it all and I’ll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare.”

The Texan also envisions just how he’ll dress the long-awaited burger, and he plans to spare no calories.

“I’m going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled,” he said. “I’m going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. I want kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices. And then I’m just going to sit back and let the [expletive] just drop on the ground.”

For now, though, the Magic Mike star reveals that he has gone from 170 to 143 pounds in his physical transformation. He is famous for his fitness and says while he’s still doing some cardio, the trick to dropping the pounds at his age is all about diet. He’s lost so much now, however, that he says he’s not so hungry.

“Your organs and muscles shrink, your organs shrink and my stomach has shrunk as well,” he reveals. “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.”
