Matt Bomer Reveals What Kept Him Calm During Those ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Stripping Scenes
Stripping can be nerve wracking, but singing a song while stripping can help calm those nerves.
Matt Bomer stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers last night (Jun. 23, 2015) where he revealed that he will be doing some singing while stripping in Magic Mike XXL. It is always good to be able to multitask.
Bomer recalled, “In between takes we would entertain extras … Channing would shove a microphone in their face and say, ‘Do something,’ and Joe Manganiello – who I went to college with at Carnegie Mellon – knew that I sang and said, ‘You should sing a song.’ So I did, and Channing remembered that, and he was like, ‘You’re singing in this one.’ “
“I was like, ‘Oh man,’ because, you know, it’s daunting to have to take your clothes off in front of strangers and then to sing live on top of that,” Bomer continued.
There was a plus side to the singing though: “There’s something about taking your clothes off at the same time that actually made it easier.”
Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1.
