One of the handsomest actors in Hollywood, Matthew McConaughey reached a point in his career several years ago where he decided to shake up his image. Instead of continuing to play the charming romantic hero, he would seek out more serious roles in smaller, independent projects. Recent films like Killer Joe, The Paperboy, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Mud have seen him playing against type as he tries to widen his range in darker kinds of stories. That determination to redefine himself is nowhere more evident than in his recent film, Dallas Buyers Club, co-starring Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner.
