"She's pouring this glue and stuff all over you, and you're sitting there and you're giggling, and all the sudden she lays something on you . . .and it hurts! It does hurt!" he continued. "And the thing is, after every time she waxed off whatever hair she's pulling, she says, 'So sorry, so sorry, so sorry.' So you just giggle through the tears and hope you only got to do it once."
But McConaughey isn't the only male actor who's had to endure their fair share of excessive — and sometimes painful and traumatizing — forms of male grooming. So in honor of McConaughey's dedication to his craft, here's a look at some of the best manscaping moments in movie history. Feel their pain. Steve Carell
in 40 Year Old Virgin
Pain is beauty, beauty is pain. A statement Carell can attest to all too well. Hands down, the funniest grooming scene in cinema history, Carell's commitment to the bit (he sacrificed his own chest for the sake of comedy) had audiences screaming with laughter. Not to mention screaming, "Oh, Kelly Clarkson!" any time they got waxed, too.

in What Women Want
Act like a lady, think like a lady. Before it became plain painful to watch Gibson for other
reasons, moviegoers watched him endure the trials and tribulations of womanhood in this comedy.

in Mrs. Doubtfire
A woman's work is never done. Particularly when you're actually a 40-year-old man taking on the look and identity of a 70-year-old woman. Now that's dedication. While he didn't commit like the other guys on the list — Hello! No shaved legs?! — s/he certainly had his family fooled.

Hoffman took manscaping to the max, shaving his entire body and even plucking his eyebrows all so he can pretend to be a woman pretending to be another woman. (Got all that?) But all the grooming didn't go unnoticed: Hoffman created an iconic character and earned an Oscar nod for his work on the film.

in Home Alone
Kevin McCallister learned what it meant to be a man after experiencing the bittersweet sting of aftershave during his very first home alone shower. This classic moment was undoubtedly the highlight of Culkin's career and most likely sent little boys scurrying off to their father's bathroom to see what all the fuss was about. AHHHHHHH.
