Matt Bomer Addresses Alleged Tension Between Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer on 'Magic Mike' Set
By Jackie Willis
Matt Bomer doesn't recall any awkwardness while shooting Magic Mike -- except the skimpy outfits!
On Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the 39-year-old actor was asked if it was ever uncomfortable working with Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer on the male stripper movie, as the two reportedly did not get along. Pettyfer himself even admitted in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that "Channing does not like me."
"Truth be told, no," Bomer said of any tension while filming. "On set of the first film, everybody was really professional. Channing is one of the most fun people I've ever worked with, he set a great tone."
Bomer continued to praise Tatum and Pettyfer's professionalism on Magic Mike, adding, "They both came to work on time. They did great work. There was never any tension that I witnessed."
The White Collar star further quipped that maybe he never noticed any awkwardness because he was so focused on what he was wearing at the time -- or rather not wearing.
Bomer also opened up about what it was like to shoot those bloody sex scenes with Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel. While he insisted that Gaga was also very professional on set, he still noted that kissing her was "everything."
One of the more memorable moments in AHS: Hotel is when Bomer's character is singing and dancing to Drake's "Hotline Bling." When asked if the rapper ever contacted him about the scene, Bomer exclaimed, "I wish!"
