Channing Tatum: It’s no secret that Tatum’s role on “Magic Mike” was inspired by his real life experience as a male stripper. The actor says that he used to make $150 “on a good night,” and as low as $70 or $50 “on a bad night.”

Megan Fox: Fox has experience dressing up as a banana, but not for a movie. She used to work at a “smoothie cafe,” where she had two mascot choices: an apple or a banana. She says she chose the banana “because it was thinner.”
