The Secret to Making 'Magic Mike XXL''s Channing Tatum Strip
Choreographer Alison Faulk dishes on staging hit movie's hot strip-hop dance scenes

“Then for Matt [Bomer], we were just obviously so blown away by his voice. The man is a soul singer; he’s the real deal. It’s just so awesome.

“It’s so funny: We were in one of our first rehearsals with Chan when Matt sent through his first take on it, and we were running around his house like little kids, freaking out: 'Man, Matt’s so good!’ He’s a perfectionist, so we knew we could push the boundaries with the style of it and give him like more of a challenging number.

Chris has sworn not to read reviews, but one of you twist his arm to read this, okay? 

I’ve never heard the term ‘strong male character.’ That doesn’t mean anything. So what does 'strong female character’ mean? We’re so ready to put a label on something instead of leaving room for every different kind of expression, every vulnerable, weak, funny, vulgar, stupid thing. It’s just people, right? There are layers and levels, and you can’t put somebody in a box, you know?
