Matthew McConaughey: Extras Ripped Off My Thong During ‘Magic Mike’ Filming (PHOTOS)
Tatum, 32, recalls one day on set when a frenzied group of extras accidentally ripped off McConaughey’s thong 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 reveals.
So how did McConaughey handle it?
The 42-year-old actor was a total pro and didn’t even break character. “I stayed in sequence. I went for the tuck. I went for the roll. And I finished the dance,” he said.
The film is loosely based on Tatum’s life and focuses on an experienced stripper, who takes a younger performer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. The film is out June 29.
