Actor Matthew McConaughey said he’s lost 15 pounds so far and has another 15 to lose for his role as Ron Woodruff, a man who contracted the AIDS virus in the 1980s. McConaughey says, “I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing that role.” According to, Yahoo TV.
Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks will play husband and wife in the movie “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” a movie in which she plays the wife of a 9/11 victim.
The movie is based on a 9-year-old boy who sets out across New York City on his own looking for clues to a key left by his dead father. The boy worshiped his father but remains distant from his mother, even after the tragedy.
“I think,” she added “that the story is about honoring people’s grief, while giving them permission to have grief. I loved that it showed generations in pain — the young boy and the mother — and how they healed each other by listening and talking.” According to, Hispanic Business.
The film’s subtext struck an emotional chord with Bullock, who was staying at a SoHo hotel in lower Manhattan when the passenger jets struck the twin towers.
“I was in full view of both towers,” she says.
“I saw the second plane, and I saw people helping people. That is the thing that resonates about the city of New York to me. Within seconds, the entire city came together, and residents helped each other in a way they hadn’t the day before.”
