Channing Tatum Covers 'Entertainment Weekly' with 'Magic Mike' Cast

In the issue, Matthew dishes about the movie.

On his big striptease in the film: “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.”

On 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.”

On striptease rehearsals: “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.”

Magic Mike hits theaters nationwide on June 29!

  • Bo

    Could someone please explain WHY people feel this movie is SO GAY or THESE MEN ARE FAG GOTS?? Whenever men displays “sex appeal” (i.e… nice haircut, hot body, fitted jeans, fitted shirt, or like to entertain (i.e. “strippers”) both women and men considers this gay; however, if these were women with (i.e. nice haircut, hot body, tight jeans, tight shirt, or like to entertain (i.e. “strippers”) you don’t hear “oh she’s gay or lesbian or straight, there sexual orientation is never question”. Why men are called gay or their sexual orientation is question whenever they display “sex appeal”? All 4 of these men are extremely hot and masculine especially Channing Tatum. Regardless of all the negative comments, I plan to watch the movie.

    @Bo: Those are jealous actors that tried out and couldn’t make it

  • Sissi


  • Sissi

    Oh stop saying that to make your boyfriend feel better. And tell him to get out of the room while your staring!

  • Sissi

    If these guys are gay because they play strippers and are showing off their imeppecable bods THAN SO IS MEGAN FOX AND EVERY PICTURE THAT SHES EVER DONE!

  • Janey

    @Elle: Everyone hates him including the American public

  • Deb

  • Sarah.

    OMG! Matt Bomer.. you look insanely hot. Look at those muscles. haha. Can’t wait for the movie to come out. :p

  • Lifetime Movie Network

    Just like the two “actors” in the cast that tried out for one of the biggest superhero franchises in motion picture history …..and FAILED.
    That’s right, fall back on ‘em looks (while it lasts…..)

  • Mirra

    A bunch of middle-aged mediocre actors.

  • frisbee

    I’m there! WIth a couple of beers, some girlfriends and a lot of hooting! *salivates wildly*

  • Kristy

    i mean i’ll go see the movie and all, but if this were a movie about female strippers, the girls would be wearing barely any clothes on the cover. yet all the dudes up there are almost fully clothed?? wtf??

    i’m not asking for a g-string, maybe shirtless with some low-rise pants or something? why are we women always getting the shaft with these sorts of things?

  • Playgirl

    Can someone please tell me who that guy is with no shirt on?

  • Marisa

    Gorgeous. Definitely buying the magazine.

  • Katrina

    I’d willingly turn into a gay man just to have a shot with Matt Bomer, he is SO unbelievably good looking!

  • VirtualSurf

    Cam “God” Gigandet is 100 times more sexy than

    Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettifer, and Joe Manganiello


  • Agent 007

    Alex clearly couldn’t stand to pose with these obvious gay actors (both closetted and open cases). Gaaaaaaaayness overloaded.

  • montevideo

    Alex had his usual bad behavior and has been benched
