Matthew McConaughey is back on the road to being a beefcake.

After dropping more than 40 pounds for his starring role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the actor told People magazine he is working on getting back to his normal size.

“I have less [physical] leverage [now], but my mind is way sharper,” he said at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards on Monday. “You know, I love to wrestle. It’s a good time to wrestle me now. I was 135 lbs., and now I’m up to 160 lbs, so I’m done with that and on my way back.”

The 43-year-old actor said his goal weight is 165 lbs. After ditching his intense diet, he started packing on the pounds with the thing he’s been craving for months — a cheeseburger.

“That was it. I got the cheeseburger, and then I sat there for 25 minutes and doozied it up,” he said.
