Matthew McConaughey Talks About His Extreme Weight Loss

Matthew McConaughey, 42, has become somewhat unrecognizable in recent weeks since losing 30 pounds for his upcoming role in The Dallas Buyer’s Club, the true story of a man with AIDS in the mid-1980s who seeks out experimental HIV drugs to prolong his life.

McConaughey looked extremely thin in photos showing him leaving a church in Austin, Texas, as he appeared to be leaning on his mother for support. If he seems as though he’s somewhat ill, well, that’s part of the point.

“I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing this,” McConaughey told Larry King’s Ora TV web series Larry King Now back in July, when he had lost 15 of the 30 pounds.

“It’s a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse,” he told King. And while his pregnant wife has been facing pregnancy cravings, “[I'm] drinking a lot of tea … It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you’re not going to give it something else from the outside.”

For McConaughey, who’s expecting his third child with Camila, it was a major reversal from how he prepared to play a buff stripper in Magic Mike. For that role, he ate five meals a day of only protein and worked out relentlessly.

‘Puddle Of Mudd’ Singer Booted From Flight And Arrested

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was just arrested at an Austin, TX airport for allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant while in the air — a rep for the Austin PD tells TMZ.

According to the Austin PD, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol. It’s unclear exactly what provoked the argument, but a source with airport security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn’t sell him booze. Scantlin’s flight was originally bound for L.A. but was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane.

A rep for the Austin PD tells us, Scantlin was arrested and booked for public intoxication, but he could also later face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew. FYI — Scantlin pled “guilty” to felony cocaine possession in July, but the judge agreed to clear his record in 18 months so long as Scantlin obeys all laws … a condition Scantlin may just have violated.

Bottom line — if Scantlin actually did cause a mid-air ruckus he could face prison time for the cocaine charge, as well as for public intoxication and interfering with a flight crew.

Are you a Puddle of Mudd fan? Did Wes Scantlin deserve to be booted from the plane and arrested for the in-flight ruckus he allegedly caused? Do share your thoughts and opinions with us!

Details of Matthew McConaughey’s Proposal To Camila Alves

When Matthew McConaughey surprised longtime love Camila Alves with a Christmas Day proposal last winter, he made sure to savor the moment.

“It was the last gift to be opened and I wrapped it in seven different boxes so Camila would have to keep unwrapping,” McConaughey tells PEOPLE of the rose-cut Cathy Waterman engagement ring he’d buried inside. “She got the ring, I took a knee and asked her to marry me and take my name. After a bit, she conceded … thankfully.”

That vintage-style engagement ring — and wedding bands by Kathy Rose — weren’t the only diamonds to dazzle at the couple’s June 9 at-home nuptials in Austin, Texas. Completing Alves’s collection of bridal jewels were two pieces by Neil Lane: an elegant diamond headpiece and 10-carat earrings, featuring pear-shaped center diamonds, to help give her “a very romantic, soft look,” Lane tells PEOPLE. “She wanted to wear her hair back with the glamorous earrings.”

The platinum bridal headband, designed initially as a bracelet and accented with pearls and diamonds, “has a beautiful Edwardian, art deco feel,” Lane says. “[It's] vintage without being too old-fashioned. It’s an exquisite, romantic look.”

Tim Tebow Inspires Thousands to Attend Texas Easter Service

Tebow-mania reached new heights Easter Sunday, as thousands of worshippers descended on a central Texas town to catch a glimpse of outspoken NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

Nearly 15,000 worshippers flocked to Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, about 20 miles north of Austin, Sunday morning to hear the newest New York Jet speak. Traveling over 100 miles to get there in some cases, churchgoers gathered in fields for a music-filled outdoor service. And dozens of school buses began to arrive before sunup Sunday, with Tebow fans eager to catch a glimpse of the deeply devout Christian football star.

Citing a church spokeswoman, the AP reported that Tebow recently reached out to church Pastor Joe Champion about visiting his congregation. Easter Sunday happened to the best date for the football star, she said. “In Christianity, it’s the Pope and Tebow right now,” Champion told the congregation Sunday morning. “We didn’t have enough room to handle the Pope.”

During the service, Tebow joined the pastor on stage for a 20-minute interview. “It’s OK to be outspoken about your faith,” said Tebow, the son of former Baptist missionaries who became known in his college playing days for wearing Bible verses in his eyeblack. Asked for his thoughts on what the country needs to improve, Tebow cited a line from the Pledge of Allegiance, Sports Illustrated reports.

“First and foremost is what this country was based on: one nation under God,” he said. “The more that we can get back to that.”
