Don't ever accuse Matthew McConaughey of not suffering for his art. The actor has admitted he cried when he went to get 'manscaped' for his role in the forthcoming stripper flick, Magic Mike.

A hair-free Matthew McConaughey in Magic Mike

Matthew - along with co-stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez - all had to get their bits and bobs tidied up for the stripping scenes in the film and the 42-year-old star confessed the painful procedure isn't something he'd repeat in a hurry.

During a chat with US chat show host Jay Leno, he said: "Everybody got 'manscaped' to some extent... If you don't have to do it, don't ever do this.

"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 just (rips) 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."

Ouch.
