Ex-Strippers Claim They Inspired ‘Magic Mike’s’ Moves
Channing Tatum’s “bare-all” tribute to his former life “Magic Mike” hits theaters on Friday, but already there are former strippers that claim that they are the ones who inspired the events in the most titillating movie of the summer.
The two claimants told TMZ that they used to work with Tatum during his stripper days, and that they even taught him the moves he displays in the film.
Over the weekend, Channing Tatum denied their claims while he was out promoting the movie. He told the Hollywood Reporter, “Those guys have been trying to make money off of me since I got into this business.” He went on to say that, “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.”
Regardless of who taught Tatum those moves, I can’t wait to see him on the big screen! If you are feeling frisky, you can check out the red band trailer for yourself.
