Oh, don’t even pretend that you don’t know Magic Mike, a favorite of ladies everywhere and an inspiration to guys everywhere to hit the gym more often. The film turned into a franchise, with Magic Mike XXL coming out this past summer, and proved that audiences love strippers, particularly celebrity strippers.
Let’s just talk about a few things. First of all, most celebrities are in incredible shape for their various roles – as are most strippers. Most celebrities know how to work it in front of the camera, on the red carpet, and anywhere their job requires them to be – same with strippers. Really, it’s surprising that more A-list celebs don’t have a secret pole-twirling past!
So, apart from Channing Tatum – or should we call him Chan Crawford – what celebrities bared it all to make some big bucks when they were still starting out in the entertainment industry? More than you would think, actually. There are a few celebs that you would pretty much expect, given their slightly wild reputations and larger than life personalities, but there are also a few surprises that might send you to the vast archives of the Internet to try to dig up any hidden videos. Hey, curiosity is a powerful thing – we won’t judge.
10. Chris Pratt
With roles in films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, it’s safe to say that Chris Pratt is no longer that lovable weirdo on Parks and Recreation – he’s a bonafide A-List movie star. Many have watched Pratt’s constant transformations in awe, as he acquires a dad bod when he’s not filming anything, and when he scores a big role, begins to efficiently melt away the fat and chisels his body. Back before he hit it big in the industry, though, he was probably keeping his six pack on point as he worked as an amateur stripper. What led him to take his clothes off for money? “I was always a very much naked person, I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid.”
