Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer claim removing their body hair was the worst part of playing male strippers.

The hunky actors all star in Steven Soderbergh's new film, Magic Mike, about the dark side of male stripping, and didn't find being naked on stage in front of a room full of screaming women the worst part.

Alex, 22, said: "Oh my god, I don't know how women shave," adding that his skin was irritated for weeks.

Matthew and Channing opted for a chest wax.

"I don't know what movie could make me do that again," Channing said.

"One time is enough for me," echoed Matthew.

British actor Alex also had wardrobe issues.

"I don't know how you wear a thong. It's one of the most uncomfortable things in the world," he said.

True Blood's Joe Manganiello, who also stars in the film, claimed: "Anything a man does in a thong is funny."
