Channing Tatum and the 'Magic Mike XXL' cast talk dieting and their post-filming buffet

Posted on

To stay in shape, the cast of Magic Mike XXL had to avoid their favorite foods – until the director called “cut” and then all bets were off. So, what’s the first thing the actors wanted to eat after filming wrapped?

“Actually, a better question is what’s the first thing you don’t eat?” star Channing Tatum said.

EW’s own Tim Stack caught up with Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Stephen “tWitch” Boss to get the scoop on their huge post-finale buffet – which wasn’t easy to keep down after a full day of dancing. Check out the clip above for the full story. 

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters July 1.

The full interview with the cast originally appeared in the June 19, 2015 issue of Entertainment Weekly. To subscribe, head to ew.com/allaccess.
