Not chasing the Oscars: Matthew McConaughey

Los Angeles, Sep 12 (IANS) Actor Matthew McConaughey says he is not eyeing any Academy award for his work in "Dallas Buyers Club" and worked in it just for good experience.

The 43-year-old plays real-life AIDS victim Ron Woodroof in the drama, which is expected to release later this year.

"There's nothing out there that I am chasing. I want my work to translate. Last year was an incredibly creative year of work for me... I'm looking for great experiences," quoted McConaughey as saying.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee "Dallas Buyers Club" required McConaughey to loose a lot of weight. The actor lost almost 21 kgs to fit into the perfect frame.
