Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello cover the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, and all we have to say is ... we can't WAIT for Magic Mike to hit theaters this June!
The hotties all star in the male stripper biopic (in case you didn't know, it is based on Tatum's past!) and they chatted with EW about showing off their hot bodies on the big screen.
On McConaughey's big striptease, he tells the mag, “Oh, it leaves something to the imagination. It wasn’t in the script, but Soderbergh said in the beginning that if it felt right, I could strip at the end of the movie. I said, ‘I gotta dance, man.’ I would regret it for the rest of my life if I was in a male stripper movie and didn’t get up there and strip myself.”
How did they prepare for their roles? McConaughey replied, "Everybody was pretty damn ripped already, but boy, if you really want to get men in great shape, just tell them they’re going to play male strippers in a movie and have their shit onscreen for the rest of time. Vanity, baby."
So, were any of the guys concerned about showing more than just their sexy six packs? Manganiello certainly had no qualms about it! "When I came in for a meeting with the casting director, she hadn’t seen True Blood," he said. "So she said, “Are you going to be comfortable with partial nudity?” And I go, “Have you seen my show? I’m the poster child for that.” Thank goodness for that...
