Matthew McConaughey Hurt During Fight Training

By Tim Nudd

Matthew McConaughey ended up getting stitches after cutting his face while training for his role as a fighter in an upcoming movie.

The actor's rep confirms to PEOPLE that McConaughey, 38, was injured while training for his role in The Grackle, a comedy in which he plays a brawler-for-hire. Photos of McConaughey with bandages on his face were posted Monday on the Web site X17.

The rep said the actor has been doing “UFC training,” which is based on the principles of Ultimate Fighting Championship.

McConaughey's character in The Grackle “hires himself out for $250 to settle disputes for people who can't afford a lawyer,” according to Variety. “Harsh language and quick fists are his weapons of choice.”
