More than 20 years after Craig Borten was inspired to documents Ron Woodroof’s story, the screenwriter managed to bring the film to theaters. He has now earned an Academy Award nomination, which he called an “incredible end” to his “epic journey.”
Matthew McConaughey looks so much like the real Ron Woodroof, his part in The Dallas Buyer’s Club (Limited release Nov. 1) that Mr. Woodroof’s family can’t bare to look at him. Who was the real Ron Woodroof, and what’s his legacy?
Jared Leto (or Jordan Catalano forever and always for me) is in an upcoming movie called the Dallas Buyer’s Club about a straight Texas with AIDS who smuggled in alternative treatments through Mexico in the 80s. Jared, who now is best known for his bad 30 Seconds from Mars, plays a transsexual stricken with the disease.
Jared Leto is starving himself for a cause. The forty-year-old actor/musician recently signed on to the 2013 flick Dallas Buyer’s Club which required him to lose a ton of weight, and boy, has he. Earlier today, he and photographer Terry Richardson released some shocking photos of his weight loss.
