Matthew McConaughey: “Dallas Buyers Club” Photocall Fun in Rome
Showing some love to his Italian fans, Matthew McConaughey showed up for the “Dallas Buyers Club” photocall in Rome on Tuesday (January 28).
The “Dazed and Confused” hunk was joined by Francesco Melzi d'Eril, Ginevra Elkann and Lapo Elkann as he smiled for the press and fielded a few questions.
Last night (January 27) Matthew and his lovely wife Camila Alves were in the house at Cinema Barberini for the big Rome premiere.
Of his preparation for the challenging role, McConaughey explained, “They gave me what was my secret weapon, which was [Ron Woodroof’s] diary. Which was the diary before he had HIV, and that’s where I understood who the man was before this disease came on — which ironically gave him the first purpose and clear identity of something to fight for in his life.”
“He wanted to get out. I don’t know where he wanted to go, but he was lost and wandering and was pretty lonely. And the ironic, sad thing is that this disease is actually what gave him something clear to fight and claw for 24-7.”
