Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto weren't the only ones who lost weight for their movie Dallas Buyers Club.

Costar Jennifer Garner says she shed 50 pounds of baby weight after giving birth to son Samuel for her role in the flick, something that was overshadowed by McConaughey and Leto's drastic transformations!

"They're skinny," Garner said of her costars on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live. "And all anybody says is, 'All those boys lost 50 pounds.' Do you know how much weight I lost before I did this movie? Fifty pounds. Has anyone given me a ticker tape parade? No!"

Host Jimmy Kimmel quipped, "And part of that was the baby coming out, right?"

"Yeah, but whatever. Who cares?" Garner joked. "No one's asking me, 'Oh, how'd you lose all that weight?' Well, it wasn't easy!"

As for how McConaughey and Leto lost so much weight (McConaughey went from 185 pounds to 135 pounds!), Garner dished, "They didn't eat. Jared looked like he was going to blow over in the wind. He kind of had a dazed look and then they would say, 'Action!' and he'd be present and kind of then go back into [the daze]. That might just be how he is all the time. And then Matthew he just ate a few hundred calories a day."
