For a guy getting some serious mileage out of his real-life past as a stripper, Channing Tatum doesn't seem to have much love for the experience.

"I never enjoyed the taking-the-clothes-off part," the Magic Mike star told OUT magazine (via "You are on a stage with people yelling at you and you feel like you're a rock star, but you're nothing."

Even though he and his Magic Mike stars had a blast together and joked about the experience in the new Entertainment Weekly cover story, Channing said it all boils down to a pretty embarrassing experience. "You're just a guy taking off his clothes, looking like a fool in a stupid outfit."

Is it any different when it's a girl taking her clothes off? Guess it's all about the confidence. Not that these guys could ever look like fools in our book!
