The men of Magic Mike are featured on a very revealing Entertainment Weekly cover. Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Matthew McConaughey don dirty wife beaters, and Joe Manganiello’s is only wearing suspenders (and pants of course).

Here are a few highlights from the interview…

On his big striptease performance: “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.”

Who is the hottest Magic Mike stripper: “Dallas, of course. [Laughs] 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.” 

How they rehearsed the striptease scenes: “I found the song I wanted, we got it cleared very early, and I started working on the choreography from the very beginning. I was working two, three nights a week to get that down. It was a ball.”

How Matthew’s thong was accidentally ripped off during a dance number: “It was a collection of women being like, ‘I have to tip him,’ and then the weight of all the dollar bills in their hands just took [his thong] off,” Tatum recalls, laughing. Consummate actor that he is, McConaughey didn’t even break character. “I stayed in sequence,” he says proudly. “I went for the tuck. [Mimes covering his manhood] I went for the roll. [Mimes doing a forward roll] And I finished the dance.”

Magic Mike is in theaters nationwide on June 29!
