Chris Rock - Chris Rock Urged Joe Manganiello To Strip For Magic Mike

Funnyman Chris Rock helped talk hunky Joe Manganiello into stripping off in racy new movie Magic Mike when the True Blood star asked the comic for career advice.
Manganiello heard he was on director Steven Soderbergh's shortlist for the saucy film while he was shooting What to Expect When You're Expecting and he took the script to co-star Rock for his take on the film.
The actor admits his funny friend wasn't a fan of the film until Manganiello mentioned Soderbergh would be directing and his co-star would be Matthew MCConaughey.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I was like, 'Should I do it?' And he's like, 'Ooh... male strippers, I don't know.' I was like, 'If I do this movie, guys are gonna hate my guts.' And Chris Rock is like, Motherf**ker, guys are gonna hate your guts anyway. Brad Pitt spent 15 years with his shirt off, he's doing just fine. Who's directing?'
"I go, 'Soderbergh', and he goes, 'Who's in it?' and I go, 'Channing (Tatum), MCConaughey...' He goes, 'Do the f**king movie!'"
