2012’s Magic Mike was a left field smash loosely based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a ‘male entertainer.’ It was smart, witty and filled with intriguing characters – not to mention some amazing dancing.

Recently, Pinkett-Smith took part in a conference call Q&A with a group of bloggers/journalists and, among other things, talked about that very subject.
