Beefcake Matthew McConaughey is almost back to being a beefcake!

The 43-year-old actor lost a staggering 38 pounds for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club, but fortunately, he's gaining the weight back.

"I was 135 lbs., and now I'm up to 160 lbs, so I'm done with that and on my way back." he told reporters Monday at New York Film Critics Circle Awards dinner, per People.

McConaughey also opened up about his first post-diet indulgence. "A cheeseburger," he said. "That was it. I got the cheeseburger, and then I sat there for 25 minutes and doozied it up."

Well deserved. And while he's not quite back to his full-fledged hunky physique yet, he doesn't totally mind. "I have less [physical] leverage, but my mind is way sharper," he said. "You know, I love to wrestle. It's a good time to wrestle me now."

We'd be happy to take him up on that.
