Channing Tatum is one of the stars of this film, and he is also responsible for bringing “Magic Mike” to the big screen. The film is loosely based on his own life and experiences as a stripper. He has been accused by former friends of his that he stripped with that he stole their lives for the film’s plot. Tatum has now come out in defense of those accusations. He said the following, according to Ace Showbiz:
“Those guys have been trying to make money off of me since I got into this business. Look, there’s nothing that’s factual in this whole movie other than that I was an 18-year-old kid and went into this world and I dropped out of college from playing football and was living on my sister’s couch. There’s not one character that I took from my real life; this is just a world that I went into, and I had a perspective on. And we created everything from a fictional place.”
The character played by Alex Pettyfer in the film is loosely based on Tatum. He entered life as a stripper before heading to Hollywood and starting his career. Pettyfer spoke about the start of filming for him once he joined the case. He said the following, according to E! Online on Sunday:
“Next thing I know I’m in a costume fitting with an American-flag thong with everything hanging out and I go ‘I’ve really just got to dive into this head first’, and I did and it scared me and I was terrified about the dancing. I’ve never danced in my life. I can’t put one foot in front of the other, let along shake it…But you know what I learned—apart from Channing’s amazing dancing—the funnier, the grimier, the dirtier it is, the bigger reaction you get.”
This film will head into theaters this Friday. Fans are buzzing about the pending release of this film on social media. One fan said the following on Twitter recently:
