Matthew Mcconaughey - Matthew Mcconaughey's ''Gross'' Killer Joe Role

Matthew McConaughey says 'Killer Joe' made him want to ''clean himself with a steel-brush''.

The 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' actor admits the crime thriller - which contains suggestions of incest and a lot of nudity - was a far reach from his romantic-comedy past and made him feel ''sick''.

He said: ''It made me feel sick. I didn't like it at all. I felt it was gross.''

The Texan-born actor - renowned for playing light-hearted roles in Hollywood - admits he wanted a particular eye-watering scene involving Gina Gershona and a chicken drumstick to ''go down in cult history''.

He added: ''After the first take I think I blacked out or was seeing stars. I was excited to go to work that day. I had the chance to do one of those scenes that could go down in cult history.

''It's scary to do but it was a real go-for-it scene.''

The 42-year-old star plays the lead role in the 2012 movie, and while he is renowned for playing more light-hearted characters, he is hoping 'Killer Joe' will define a new chapter for his career.

He told the Guardian newspaper: ''I'm hanging my hat on reality and humanity, not morality. I didn't go after 'Killer Joe'. Billy Friedkin came to me for it.''
