Hopefully he’s not really balding on top and trying to compensate with growing his hair longer in the back: that’s what his character is doing ;). In ‘Gold’ Matthew plays businessman Kenny Wells who goes to the Indonesian jungle in search of gold. As you can imagine, he’s having a tough time, business-wise.
Matthew has said before that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to look the part.
For me, I go whatever the role that I’m playing needs. So if I’m doing an action movie or a football player, I go to the gym and hit weights. I haven’t done anything like that in years so I haven’t really picked up a weight in four years.”
He certainly lost plenty of weight for the ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ so it must’ve been a relief just to have to look a little paunchy and balding for ‘Gold’! Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in the movie with him as Kay. You can see her on-set with Matthew in the gallery below.
