‘Magic Mike’ Co-Stars Matthew McConaughey & Channing Tatum Hit Up Male Strip Club

/ April 25, 2012

Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum team up to watch men strip down!

The Magic Mike co-stars, who play male strippers in their newest flick, did a little homework by checking out a male strip club themselves for some real-life research!

Matthew, 42, spilled their secret to reporters at the premiere of his other new film, Bernie.

“[We] met early on and went by one male review strip club in New Orleans, I was there for about an hour. That was enough,” Matthew said.

This surely must have brought back some fond memories for Channing, 31, who was a former male dancer before becoming an actor. The film is said to be loosely based on his experiences as a stripper.

Magic Mike hits theaters June 29 and check out the below video to hear Channing dish about his clothes-ditching past.
