The 32-year-old opened up about the preparation for the Steven Soderbergh movie, which is loosely based on his time as a male stripper
"I think pre-movie is pretty intense because to get butt naked, you have to - there's a different regimen for getting butt naked, but thank god, it was a short shoot," Tatum told MTV News
"Then we just had fun on the day," he added.
Tatum recently confessed that he was unhappy working as a male stripper

The actor recently admitted that he's frightened of co-star Rooney Mara
, who plays his wife in the forthcoming Soderbergh thriller The Bitter Pill
