EW has two new exclusive images from the film Magic Mike, featuring Adam Rodriguez, Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Matt Bomer who according to those interview bits has a whole new profound respect for women after he had to wax his body for the movie.
EW: We’ve got to talk about playing a stripper in Magic Mike.
Matt Bomer: Exotic dancer. We have pride. [Smiles]
You had to get waxed, right? Did it hurt?
Yes and yes.
Have you waxed before?
I had never been waxed before. I did have to get partially waxed. I’m not a very hairy individual to begin with, but it was painful. But more than that, the pain didn’t bother me so much, it was more the feeling of feeling kind of prepubescent again, walking around with no hair on your legs, in jeans, feeling kind of naked all the time, that was odd.
Did it grow back okay?
Actually, the regrowth process was really s—-y — itchy, uncomfortable. I have a newfound appreciation for women, between the waxing, self-tanning, the constant gym time; I have a whole new profound respect for women and what they go through.
This movie is going to be ridiculous, in a good way of course [EW.com]
