That’s all me up there. I don’t need a stunt a**. 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. At first it was scary as hell, but then it became like a drug and I couldn’t wait to do it again
Matthew McConaughey opened up to the Advocate about his big striptease in the upcoming movie ‘Magic Mike’. If you thought that he used a stunt, think again. No, the 42-year-old actor did all the work by himself. Funny thing: the scene wasn’t even in the script initially, but thanks to Matthew’s enthusiasm, it became the sexiest dance of the movie.
“It had to be wonderfully filthy”, he added.
According to Wikipedia, ‘Magic Mike’ tells the story of veteran stripper Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) who teaches a novice (Alex Pettyfer) about the occupation while seeking a lifestyle outside the world of stripping with the help of his protege’s sister (Cody Horn). They work at the club Xquisite, which is owned by the former stripper Dallas (Matthew McConaughey).
The film is expected to be released on June 29, 2012 in the US.
