It's just a part of the job

Joe Manganiello knows how to dress up and he can certainly strip down, but even bona fide hunks need to rehearse.

The Magic Mike XXL star, 38, told Good Morning America on Tuesday he practiced many of his dance moves for the film for his willing (and occasionally unwilling) fiancée Sofia Vergara.

“She was on that machine in the gym where you lock your legs in and [squeeze], so she couldn’t run away,” Manganiello said. “I would catch her and practice … She would just cover her face.”

Vergara, 42, has been enduring a lot of stripping as of late. Last week, Ellen DeGeneres hired strippers to give her a mini on-air bachelorette party on the show.

But we have a feeling moves from her soon-to-be husband were likely her favorite.

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1.
