While Matt Bomer is wiley as a con artist on ‘White Collar,’ he had a little less prowess when it came to the varied stripper gear he was required to wear in ‘Magic Mike.’

Yes, ‘Magic Mike,’ the film in which Bomer plays a male exotic dancer beside Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey. Though it might be easy to visualize these men working the pole, some of the details were challenging.


‘Figuring out how to put on a thong. The first time I tried, I had never worn a thong before, so the first time I tried it I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,’ Bomer told MTV News.

‘I had to call a wardrobe person in, ‘Something is wrong with my thong, you guys. I think we are gonna have to figure this out,’ and they’re like, ‘Yeah, your legs are in the wrong holes,’’ he said (video below).

We hate when that happens! Bomer also ran into some issues with tear-away clothing, which is a staple of any good male striptease (or, um, so we’re told).

‘It was sort of a lot of tearaway clothes, you know? There’s definitely a technique to make sure you get those off cleanly,’ Bomer said.
