And they didn’t even need to bring their own dollar bills.
Fifteen lucky fans got to visit the Savannah, Georgia, set of Magic Mike XXL on Saturday – and served as extras during a sexy dance sequence by the stars, including Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer.
“Those boys sure can shake it!” says Mary Joelle Smallman, 25, one of 15 contest winners who submitted photos and videos to prove they are Magic Mike superfans. “I was most excited to meet Channing Tatum,” says Smallman. “My husband and I saw his movie Step Up 10 years ago and ever since then I’ve followed him and his wife’s careers and I just love him. At first my nerves were going but then I was myself. He’s such a down-to-earth person.”
Smallman’s contest-winning entry was a rap video. (Sample lyrics: “From Matthew to Channing, the stage is on fire/I just want to win that’s my one desire/I saw Magic Mike back in 2-0-1-2/Please pick me so I can get a front view!”) She wasn’t allowed to reveal details of the scene she witnessed, but says, “The women who go to see this movie with the girlfriends are in for a treat!”
