Matthew McConaughey says no stunt butts were used in stripper movie
Melbourne: Matthew McConaughey, who stripped naked in his new movie ‘Magic Mike,’ has revealed that it was all him in the movie and no stunt voices or stunt butts were used.
The movie is the brainchild of Channing Tatum, who took inspiration from his days as a stripper in Florida before he broke into acting.
In the movie, McConaughey played the ringleader and big brother to the young bucks, doing most of the stripping in the film - Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez.
“None of us besides Channing had ever stripped on a stage before, so ... we all walked the proverbial plank together,” the Daily Telegraph quoted McConaughey as saying.
It’s already folklore that in his one stripping scene the female extras got so excited stuffing dollars into his g-string, they ripped it off.
McConaughey’s wife, Camila Alves - “She was my girlfriend at the time,” he quickly pointed out - was on set to see her man shoot the scene.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie pulled off that near-impossible trick of, McConaughey says, “getting critical acclaim and doing good business.”
It is nearing 100 million dollars at the US box office.
