Pictures of Matthew McConaughey looking super skinny shocked fans and paparazzi alike, and now it seems like concern for the actor's health was justified.

In Touch is reporting that the "Magic Mike" star began to go blind after losing 50 pounds for his role as an AIDS patient in "Dallas Buyers Club." A "source close to" McConaughey told the mag he immediately met with a doctor who confirmed that vision loss is a common result of starvation. However, the actor's rep told Entertainment Wise that there is "no truth" to the reports.

McCounaughey, who has since completed filming on the movie (due out later this year), is slowly putting the weight back on, and has no permanent blindness, according to In Touch.
