Too close for comfort? The men of Magic Mike XXL stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Sunday, June 14, and spilled on just how well they know one another now after spending months filming the steamy sequel in various states of undress.

Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Matt Bomer, and Adam Rodriguez caught up with host Jimmy Kimmel ahead of Magic Mike XXL’s July 1 release date. The five hunky actors star in the upcoming flick as male strippers who take a road trip to a stripping convention.

Tatum, 35, who stars as Magic Mike, told Kimmel that he thought the collective Internet came up with the title of Magic Mike XXL, but, “I was wrong about that.”
“It actually was Soderbergh,” he continued of the first film’s director, Steven Soderbergh. “Apparently he’s been thinking about the title a lot… There was one [alternate title], and it was, Magic Mike: The Road to Myrtle Beach.”

Tatum and his fellow beefcakes costars got their bodies ready for Myrtle Beach and the strip club after the huge success of 2012’s Magic Mike. The men kept up a rigorous schedule of dieting, waxing, and working out, and while they were thrilled with the results, they were less than pleased with the process.
“I actually went to the wax procedure,” WWE star Nash, 55, spilled. “I got to my first buttock, they started to go toward the cavern, and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll pretty much take this at home.'”

Nash went on to add that the waxing wasn’t even the worst part of filming, saying, “the lack of wine” and “no-drinking” rule was the hardest aspect for him. The actors’ slimmed-down, buffed and waxed figures are famously on full display in the stripper movie for a second time.

“[It was] definitely, definitely easier [the second time],” Rodriguez told Kimmel of his comfort level with his costars’ nudity. “I think we got that out of the way early on in the first one. I think this time we’re actually looking forward to seeing each other naked.”

“We pretty much, between us, have no boundaries left,” Bomer, 37, chimed in. “I can’t even smell the smell of self-tanner anymore. My olfactories are just gone.”

Va-va-voom! Want to know the naked truth about male strippers? Well, exotic dancers Justin Whitfield and Taylor Cole are thrilled to bare all, in more ways than one. Their new book, Take It Off! The Naked Truth About Male Strippers, reveals what really goes on behind the scenes, including titillating tidbits about the trade.

Wild sex every night? “I try to have as much wild crazy sex as possible,” says Taylor, 34, “If you’re single like me, it’s definitely a perk of the job.”

Backstage? “It’s like a frat house – nonstop pranks and antics,” says Cole.

Adds Whitfield: “Because we are grown men who happen to make a living dancing in our underwear, we really don’t take ourselves too seriously. We spend a lot of time trying to make each other laugh.”

How’s the money? Bachlorette parties are big business. Often male strippers make their money from tips they receive performing onstage and lap dances. A six-figure salary is possible for those in their prime.

Whitfield and Cole call themselves just regular guys with an unconventional job – standing in front of hundreds of women screaming for them to “take it off, take it off!” And neither is ready to retire their G-string fully just yet. Being an alpha male is one big high. “Every man wants to have women lust after his body.”

The awesome-built duo both went from shy guy to hot stud and have lived a life of GTP – gym, tan and party. They’ve danced collectively for three decades for women in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and Canada and in hundreds of clubs across the United States. Both have appeared in Playgirl magazine and are both cover models for Ellora’s Cavemen erotic romance novels.

“Dancing has been the absolute best job I’ve ever had,” says Whitfield, a 39-year-old dancer and dad of two. “Magic Mike [the movie] was fairly accurate in terms of the work and the lifestyle, but it just scratched the surface of what really goes on. Take It Off! picks up where the movie left off.”

Whitfield, 39, is now retired but dances a few times a year in male revue touring shows. No longer being the centre of attention is tough. “The best thing about dancing was the memories – the fun, the stage, the girls, the sex, the parties, the friends. Worst part is when it’s time to leave, most guys don’t have a thrilling life or job after dancing.”

Meanwhile, Cole, who holds a degree in economics, runs a construction company by day and dances at night. He still loves that after 16 years – “it’s the best job ever. It opened so many doors and gave me opportunities I never would have had.” He plans to retire in two years to focus on his construction company but “for now I’m having so much fun, it’s hard to stop.” And too much sex too, admits Cole. “Crazy wild sex is still a part of my lifestyle – that’s why stripping is such a hard job to quit.”

It’s not every night but the “I have much more wild sex than most people and it’s probably 90% possible because of my work. Can you blame me? I love women, I love my job and I love sex.” Strippers have to be ripped and that requires a rigid fitness routine: “One hour a day, five days a week hitting each body part once a week. I personally don’t do cardio since I’m dancing on stage all week,” says Cole.

And everything is bigger in Texas so I don’t have to stuff,” adds Cole, who likes other wild action too.

Chris Pratt worked as a stripper in the early days of his career, the actor revealed. The struggle was real for him.
The famous Hollywood actor worked in one of the biggest hits last year and performed as male lead in the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy”. The movie was a major hit at the box office.

His second most awaited movie of the Jurassic Park film series was named “Jurassic World” and it is the fourth installment of the record breaking hit movie series. It is set to get released on June the 12th in the United States and adds to Pratt’s filmography.

He has become the sensational high-demand Hollywood star but the journey to achieve these big dreams was not easy for the hunk. He is also going to appear on July issue of Red Bulletin.

During his past interview with Buzzfeed, the handsome dude admitted working as a male stripper “Cheap Magic Mike”. He said that he was very much a naked person who always loved to get naked.

He added that it was not at all difficult for him to work as a stripper because he was very free and had no problem making good money out of it. Chris shared that he even performed at a friend’s grandmother’s birthday party to entertain the guests once.

While going back to his college days he said that he dropped out of college in the first semester of his program. Pratt became a discount ticket agent but that did not work in the long run.

He did not take the situation to heart and went to Hawaii on a friend’s invitation. He opted for several waiting jobs, lived in a van on the beach in Maui and spent his time drinking and smoking weed.

The 35 years old actor these days is the ladies favorite because of his nice heart and down to earth nature. The fame surely has not gone to his head yet. He also shared that he was very passionate about acting from the very start. He said that his mother was moved by his brother’s performance in a play in the pre-school days.

According to him that was the moment when he realized that he could do it too to make his mother proud. While describing his gratitude in regard to his career Pratt said that he cannot believe that people are even considering him for such major roles.

The hard times are surely over for the Hollywood-hunk and he is gearing up for the release of his upcoming science fiction adventure movie. Bryce Dallas Howard his co-star on the movie while talking to E! News said that Chris is an incredibly honorable and a beautiful human being both on the inside and on the outside.

He is a solid guy both on and off the big screen, the actress added. She also called Mr. Pratt a great role model. She said that he is one of the most genuine and hilarious guys she has ever met in her life. He can add life to a party and she called him a unicorn due to his fun loving nature.

There aren’t many films with titles that guilty white people might worry that they’re not even allowed to say, but Chocolate City does. The film is an African-American answer to Magic Mike – a comparison the film itself doesn’t shy away from – all about a young man who becomes a male stripper. In fact the director has suggested the movie was a response to Magic Mike, after they noted that the Channing Tatum movie had few people of colour.

Michael is doing his best to get through college, while working and helping out his mom (Vivica A. Fox), but when the electricity company threatens to shut off their supply, he needs cash fast. After being given a ‘job interview’, Michael is shocked to see he’s being offered the chance to do exotic dancing.

After initial shyness Michael – under the name Sexy Chocolate – discovers he’s a natural. The audience adore him and he can make an awful lot of money stand on the stage and getting his grind on. As his star rises and he begins to displace the established dancers, they start to plot against him. Michael is also keeping his new job a secret from his girlfriend and mother, although that can’t last forever.

Chocolate City certainly doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. If you asked people for their first thoughts about what the plot of a movie about male strippers might be, that’s exactly the story we get here, with each expected plot point ticked and very little that will cause even the mildest amount of shock or surprise. However, it does the job in amiable fashion and let’s not kid ourselves, few people are buying a movie about male strippers in the hope that it’ll be an avant garde piece that breaks down narrative forms and takes cinema to places it’s never been before.
The plot is relatively perfunctory, but it keeps things moving along in entertaining and amusing enough fashion, even if does have a bit of a ‘have your cake and eat it’ morality, where it tries to be both liberal and prurient about men stripping at the same time.

But let’s face it, a film like this lives and dies on the promise of men getting sexy on the stripper stage, and on that Chocolate City delivers. It is a little coyer than Magic Mike and sometimes seems a little shy about men’s packages, but it certainly has plenty of muscled torsos, good looking guys and sexual grinding. It also helps that lead actor Robert Ri’chard is sex on legs, while model Tyson Beckford is looking as good as you’d hope, and there are also plenty of other hot guys showing that an African American crew can certainly give Magic Mike and his crew a run for their money.

It also makes me think that if Chocolate City fills in the gap left by the lack of people of color in Magic Mike, now we need the gay version, as there weren’t exactly a lot of LGBT characters in either movie. After all, while both Magic Mike and Chocolate City concentrate on women throwing cash at sexy gents, gay men are the backbone of the male stripping industry, keeping hot guys in work at club nights, in go-go cages and sometimes just because it’s a Tuesday and they’re feeling horny. In fact, perhaps I should go and do some research for that movie right now.

Overall Verdict: I suppose I should be poncey and pretend there are reasons to watch this is due to the fairly entertaining (if clichéd) story and how it mixes this into an African American milieu, but who would I be kidding? Nope, if you’re gonna watch it, the reason is because it’s kinda fun, and there are lots of hot guy with their shirts off who are being sexy.
