Matthew McConaughey - The Dallas Buyers Club

It may be for a movie, but it's still shocking to see Matthew McConaughey getting arrested.

Especially since he looks like he's close to death.

The freshly minted Independent Spirit Award nominee is currently filming The Dallas Buyer's Club, a real-life drama in which he stars as a straight Texan man with AIDS in the 1980s who treated himself with alternative medicines smuggled into the United States from Mexico.

In the latest round of photos from the New Orleans set, a frail-looking McConaughey is shown being arrested by uniformed police officers. He's wearing a white T-shirt and jeans, and his jet-black hair matches his bushy mustache.

As we previously reported, the actor plunged to just 143 pounds after losing 38 pounds for the role. His costars include Jennifer Garner as his doctor and Jared Leto, who has also lost a considerable amount of weight to play a drag queen.
