Oscar-winning star is completely unrecognisable

THIS Oscar-winning actor has one of the most recognisable faces in the world.

However, Matthew McConaughey would never have been spotted as himself while shooting his upcoming movie in Florida this week, thanks to an incredibly dramatic makeover.

The Dallas Buyers Club actor was pictured puffing on a fake joint while dressed as a hippie stoner, complete with a long, dishevelled blonde wig. He was in character as 'loveable rogue' Moondog - a role he's playing alongside Isla Fisher and Snoop Dogg in the upcoming movie The Beach Bum.

McConaughey's questionable outfit consisted of a loose and loudly-patterned shirt, equally garish shorts, velcro sneakers and ... a white bumbag.

At one point, he also began lugging around a huge blow-up doll while wearing Ugg boots.

The look may not suit his usual personality, but the whole thing kind of makes sense when you consider the movie is described as being about "a rebellious stoner named Moondog who lives life by his own rules."

Director Harmony Korine, who directed Spring Breakers, hinted last month the movie may actually be released in American cinemas with marijuana Smell-O-Vision.

"It's a comedy with Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg, about somewhat depressive marijuana smokers, in the spirit of Cheech and Chong," Korine explained to Uproxx.

"The action takes place in Key West, in the extreme south of Florida. I would very much like to see the film, when it's released, be shown in rooms that spread curls of marijuana [smoke]. It is possible in some states, such as California, that have legalised this drug for [medical use]. We already have about 30 rooms that have accepted."

It’s not the most flattering makeover. Picture: PCN/Australscope

Last week, McConaughey, Fisher and Snoop were seen laughing on set while filming what appeared to be wedding scenes at a lavish mansion in Miami.

The Beach Bum is due to be released in 2018.
