Matt Bomer: On Wearing a Thong for ‘Magic Mike XXL’
Matt Bomer has perfected the art of wearing a thong, all thanks to “Magic Mike XXL.” The actor revealed that he previously had reservations about stripping and dancing alongside Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, but the film has taught him how to overcome his shyness.
In the highly anticipated sequel, Bomer was filmed wearing nothing but a thong most of the time. When the first movie came out in 2012, he told Entertainment Tonight that he wasn’t very fond of wearing a G-string. It definitely did not help that what they’re wearing were “homemade” underwear that made “all the holes look the same.”
Bomer told to MTV News that he has never once worn a thong in his life, which explained why he found the garment confusing.
“The first time I tried it, I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,” Bomer recalled in the MTV News interview.
He says he resorted to calling the wardrobe team to tell them that “there’s something wrong” with his thong, and they just need to find a way to work around it. Imagine his shock when he was told that his legs were in the wrong holes!
With a lot of practice, the actor is happy to report that he knows what he’s doing this time around.
“I think now I’m ready to go. I’m ready. No assistance required,” he said proudly.
“Magic Mike XXL” opens in theaters on July 3, 2015.
