The skies may have been clear, but it was raining men on the red carpet outside Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Sunday night as the eye-candy stars of Steven Soderbergh's new highly anticipated male-stripper extravaganza, Magic Mike — Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez — showed up wearing suits and tuxes that unfortunately didn't snap off.
You have to hand it to Steven Soderbergh. If he is indeed bound for early retirement – or, at the very least, a “sabbatical,” as he has since clarified – then no one can accuse him of resting on his laurels, or indeed simply winding down the clock.
Gina Carano, 29, the sexy new actress of the star-studded Haywire and MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter, has people buzzing about her debut performance in the new action flick. Carano plays the ass-kicking Mallory in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh film — also starring Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum, and Michael Fassbender — and she not only stars in the movie; she's the very inspiration behind it.
Antonio Banderas, 51, is getting an onslaught of acclaim for his role as the psychologically disturbed plastic surgeon Robert Ledgard in The Skin I Live In, but he credits director and visionary Pedro Almodovar for much of his stunning performance in the controversial film.
