Hanks helped McConaughey lose weight

Los Angeles, Oct 18 (IANS) Actor Matthew McConaughey turned to actor Tom Hanks for advise on losing weight for his forthcoming movie "Dallas Buyers Club".

McConaughey lost almost 21 kg to fit into the role of a real-life AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.

"I actually called Tom and had a great conversation with him about what he learned about losing weight for 'Philadelphia' and 'Cast Away'," femalefirst.co.uk quoted McConaughey as saying.

"And I consulted a nutritionist about the best way to do this," he added.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, "Dallas Buyers Club" is expected to release later this year.
