When he was asked how he lost weight, he told The Wrap in September, "I stopped eating. It was 30 or 40 pounds. After a while I stopped counting." His lowest weight: 114 pounds."

"It changes the way you walk, the way you sit, the way you think," he said about his weight loss.

The Thirty Seconds to Mars lead singer celebrated his birthday on Dec. 26. He also went kayaking while in Mexico. He was wearing boarding shorts and had long hair.

Before the Dallas Buyers Club, he was on a hiatus from acting. He acknowledge that it was costar  Matthew McConaughey's work that encouraged him to go back to acting, Us Weekly reported.

"Matthew McConaughey is doing something spectacular with his life [and] his career. I wanted to be a part of that," he said. "He's doing the most incredibly inspiring work and I said, 'If he's willing to walk down this path, I have to get in the ring with him. That's someone I have to dance with, am I right?"
