Matthew McConaughey shares his ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ diet: Tapioca pudding, tiny spoon

Matthew McConaughey’s “Dallas Buyers Club” diet was certainly no picnic (literally and figuratively), but he still managed to carve out little moments of joy during the experience.

So what was the first thing he ate after filming was completed?

“When I got done, I went and made the ultimate cheeseburger,” he grinned.
