Did anyone see Magic Mike? I know I did! It was like going to a strip club without the shame of walking in, the shame of walking out, or the one dollar bills pulled from my purse and stuffed into some hunk’s g-string. It was a great show… not a great movie. Channing Tatum has a body and face to die for, and Matthew McConaughey slides in nicely at second (I’m young so I pick Channing, but my mom is a diehard McConaughey fan, so I think he fares better with the more mature ladies). He was buff and tanned and oiled up. It was a great look, I won’t lie.
However, he has recently been forced to shed forty pounds for a role as a man with AIDS. The film has since concluded filming and the star has put healthy weight back on– by that I mean, in the form of muscles, and is looking great. Here we see him during filming:
