Matthew McConaughey 'hung out in underwear' on set

Published: 11th July 2012

Matthew McConaughey stars in this month's sure-fire blockbuster hit Magic Mike, which requires him to spend much of the movie in little more than a thong.

But to get himself acclimatised and used to wearing less clothes the actor regularly wandered around set in only underwear, to make it feel more normal.

He told interviewers that it was odd to only wear a tiny thong, which "weighs like what a dollar bill weighs".

Therefore, Matthew said that due to its small size he had to work out how it looked on screen, adding "I gotta check to see if it's really covered, [if] everything is covered".

"I had to put on the thong and kind of walk around and try to have normal conversations," the actor explained, as it was essential that he felt comfortable in it if he was to play a veteran stripper with plenty of experience of exposing his body.

His co-star and the film's producer Channing Tatum has also recently admitted that it was funny tackling behind-the-scenes tasks with director Steven Soderbergh while wearing nothing but skimpy underwear.
