Matthew Mcconaughey cried when he had to be waxed for 'Magic Mike'.

The 42-year-old actor visited a salon for some intimate grooming ahead of his role as an exotic dancer in the film and he admits his response to the pain was a mixture of laughter and tears.

He recalled: ''It was like 7:30 in the morning, I go down there, we're in Hollywood, and I go to this little place in the strip mall. And the place is called Smile.

''There's this Russian woman in there, and she's just as formal as you could be, 'In the back, clothes off, lay down, turn over!'

''She's pouring this glue and stuff all over you, and you're sitting there and you're giggling, and all the sudden she lays something on you ... and it hurts! It does hurt!

''And the thing is, after every time she waxed off whatever hair she's pulling, she says, 'So sorry, so sorry, so sorry.' So you just giggle through The Tears and hope you only got to do it once.''

Although Matthew - who married Camila Alves, the mother of his children Levi, three, and Vida, two, earlier this month - and his co-stars, who include Channing Tatum Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer WWE legend Kevin Nash and Joe Manganiello, all had to get waxed for the movie, the hunky actor wouldn't recommend the experience.

He added to TV talk show host Jay Leno: ''Everybody got manscaped to some extent. If you don't have to do it, don't ever do this.''
