Olivia Munn: Male co-stars loved stripping

Olivia Munn's male Magic Mike co-stars "would never put on their robes" after wrapping a stripping scene.

The actress stars in the comedy about a male striptease troupe alongside Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello and explained that the Hollywood hunks were very body confident.

While the brunette beauty would throw on a cover-up immediately after the cameras stopped rolling, the boys would hang around in their thongs and jokingly perform their moves.

"When they'd yell, 'Cut!' I'd get my robe. The guys? They'd still be all asses shaking, walking around. They didn't put their robes on ever," she told Vulture.

Olivia also spoke about flashing her flesh for her role in the movie.

The Newsroom star didn't take a scene that required her to appear topless lightly and demanded a completely closed set.

"The way it was shot didn't feel gratuitous - I think that's what every actress says, right? There are very few directors I would ever do it for. Also, my character was getting out of the shower and to keep it as realistic as possible, I didn't wear a shirt in the shower. The day of the shoot, I locked it down. I only wanted the people who absolutely had to be there. I even cleared out video village, which you'd normally forget about," she said.
