Losing weight for a movie role is more of a personal issue. Until the movie is complete and advertising starts, the issue isn't widely publicized. By that time, he had likely regained weight to a normal range. Since I don't read fan magazines and only occassionally watch TMZ, I don't know which movie or how much weight he had lost or gained.


He went from 183lbs down to 133, and looked downright skeletal for Dallas Buyers Club.

However, the very fact that you hadn't really heard anything about it, kinda proves the point. I don't read fan magazines, or watch TMZ either, but I remember a quick blurb about it on a pop up from Huffpost last spring.

If an actor undergoes a major transformation for a monetary reason, no one really says much about it other than remarking on how dedicated he is to his craft. If a woman undergoes a similar transformation for a monetary reason, people immediately criticize her for being too thin.
