“Magic Mike,” a film loosely based on the life of “21 Jump Street” star Channing Tatum, is set to be released on Friday. The movie revolves around a group of male strippers, led by Tatum, as they experience the high and lows of shedding clothes for cash. He is joined onscreen by fellow actors Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Olivia Munn.
Tatum, however, is not the first celebrity to show some skin for a role. He joins a long list of major celebrities who have shed the clothes and hit the pole for a part, including Oscar winners Halle Berry and Natalie Portman among many, many others.
