Apparently, if you make a movie about a bunch of super cut dudes taking their clothes off, the actor will very quickly turn it into a competition--like's been done down on the Magic Mike XXL set. According to the gossip news updates: Joe Manganiello, Stephen Boss and Adam Rodriguez have all been behaving badly in order to garner the attention of any hot females--notably Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett-Smith--that may be wondering by at the time. Word has it that Jenna Dewan's husband, Channing Tatum, is ringleader and the worst of the bunch--sometimes pushing himself until he is literally sick.

The cast of Magic Mike XXL are reportedly just as obsessed with their bodies as the ladies who pine for the sequels release.

A source with behind the scenes deets told claimed in Star Magazine's November 3, issue that the boys most often strut around shirtless like a bunch of proud peacocks trying to attract a hen:

"They're always trying to one-up and out flex one another, especially when Amber Heard or any other girls are around.

The informant claims that out of all the fellas, Channing Tatum is by far the silliest of the bunch when it comes to these super ridiculous machismo displays:

"The other day, they'd just finished eating a bunch of fried chicken, and Channing challenge the guys to a crunch completion.

"He won, but he was sick for the rest of the day."

They reportedly even tease each other about their bodies like a gaggle of junior high catty Cathys arguing over who has the best or worst dress for the winter formal:

"They call Joe, "Chunky Monkey", and insist that woman like leaner dudes."

Perhaps, Channing is still trying to overcompensate for that inferiority complex he very clearly had growing up.

During a recent interview with Us Weekly, Tatum explained that school really didn't give him a lot of confidence in himself as a kid--an experience that obviously shaped his outlook on the world:

"I have never considered myself a very smart person.

"You get lumped into classes with kids with autism and Down syndrome and you...say, 'OK, so this is where I'm at.'"

Yeah, well...some things you don't get from book learning--like $60 million a year and an actress wife that looks like a supermodel.
