London: Actor Matthew McConaughey used to wear a thong on the sets of `Magic Mike` to get used to the skimpy underwear.

The 42-year-old admits donning the skimpy underwear for his role as veteran stripper Dallas in the movie was daunting.

"As far as trusting wardrobe, it is one of the larger leaps of faith to trust a thong. Really. It weighs like what a dollar bill weighs...So, the first time you put it on, you`re going, `What is every possible angle I can be in and I gotta check to see if it`s really covered, (if) everything is covered.`" contactmusic.com quoted McConaughey as saying.

"I had to put on the thong and kind of walk around and try to have normal conversations.... Then that`s what`s funny, and then you lean against a wall, like, `Now I`m just hanging out, man,` to get comfortable with it....," he added.
