Channing Tatum has been busy promoting his new movie Magic Mike, and he’s had to bring up a few bad memories or two while preparing for his male stripper role!
The 32-year-old recently revealed to People Magazine an agonizing experience he had with waxing his body for the role:
"It was the most painful thing I'll ever do. And it's something I'll never do again."
Since Channing has some prior experience as a male stripper from when he was 18, he also talked about how he loves the dance portions of filming:
"I enjoyed the performing part of dancing but I didn't really love taking my clothes off. It was fun while it lasted."
Apparently one scene calls for Channing to reverse straddle a woman who is lying on the floor:
"That was one of our choreographers. She knew what was coming but I kept certain things from her because I didn't want her to freak out."
It sounds like Channing had a blast filming!
Can you imagine being on set with all of these male strippers? We certainly can...
Magic Mike is in theaters today!
