Matthew McConaughey: Extras Ripped Off My Thong During 'Magic Mike' Filming (PHOTOS)
Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer aren't afraid to take it all off. The hunky men, who star in the stripper inspired film Magic Mike, got together for a special Entertainment Weekly shoot and dished about the film -- and their wardrobe malfunctions!
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.
