WASHINGTON (AP) -- "Magic Mike" isn't just a movie for Channing Tatum. It's his life story. Tatum was a stripper for nine months before becoming an actor. He says he couldn't believe how wild the women would get. He jokes that the women "turn feral" once the doors close. He says "their teeth grow a little bit and their fingernails get a little longer, the hair gets coarse and they turn into these weird wildebeests." Magic Mike opens this Friday.
