He whittled himself down to a skeletal 143 pounds from a strapping 181. So how does Matthew McConaughey plan to bulk back up once he's done playing an HIV/AIDS patient circa 1986?

With a po boy. Or, if that's not at hand, he can has cheezburger. But not just any cheeseburger.

"I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half-pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese," he rhapsodizes to HitFix.com. "I'll prepare it all and I'll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare. I'm going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled. I'm going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise. I want kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices. And then I'm just going to sit back and let the (expletive) just drop on the ground."

Still, once the five-week shoot for the indie The Dallas Buyer's Club has wrapped, McConaughey concedes it might be hard to devour the whole enchilada - er, cheeseburger. "Your organs shrink (and) my stomach has shrunk as well. So, as much as I can't wait to have that cheeseburger on the day (shooting ends), it'll probably be damn hard to eat the whole thing."
