Tom Hanks helped me lose weight for film: Matthew McConaughey

Actor Matthew McConaughey has revealed that Hollywood star Tom Hanks helped him slim down for his role in 'Dallas Buyers Club'.

The 43-year-old actor had to shed more than 18 kilograms earlier this year to play an AIDS patient, Ron Woodroof in director Jean-Marc Vallee's 'Dallas Buyers Club', reported People magazine.

"I actually called Tom and had a great conversation with him about what he learned about losing weight for 'Philadelphia' and 'Cast Away'. I (also) consulted a nutritionist about the best way to do this," McConaughey said.

"I was going around and people were going, 'Hey, are you feeling all right?' I ran in to somebody and they didn't just ask if I was all right, they said, 'My God, we need to get you some help'. And I thought, 'There we go. That's the perfect spot'," he added.

The movie opens in the US on November 1 and will debut in cinemas in the UK on February 7.
