Matthew McConaughey's transformation for his role in Dallas Buyers Club was phenomenal. He went from having one of the sexiest bodies in Hollywood to a skeletal shadow of his former self.

And now that the father-of-three is getting back to normal he say's he's just 5lbs away from his goal weight of 165lbs and is looking forward to getting his strength back so he can playfully tackle his kids.

"I have less [physical] leverage, but my mind is way sharper," he told People at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards dinner.

"You know, I love to wrestle. It's a good time to wrestle me now. I was 135lbs., and now I'm up to 160lbs, so I'm done with that and on my way back."

And Matthew revealed what his first meal was when he could eat normally again.

"A cheeseburger," he shared. "That was it. I got the cheeseburger, and then I sat there for 25 minutes and doozied it up."

Matthew plays HIV sufferer Ron Woodroof in the upcoming film.
