The Vow star confessed that while all the actors in the stripper film wear outrageous costumes, Matthew McConaughey's outfits really set the tone on set.
"Matthew is going to shock people into another world with this movie!" Tatum told New York Magazine.
"He's going to change [minds] - he was born to play this part! He's incredible in this movie. He's my favourite part about this movie, and that's not me being self-deprecating, that's just the honest-to-God truth.
"I think we all sort of wear awesome stuff, but he definitely takes the cake in terms of outfits."
Joe Manganiello, who also stars in the film, went on to say that McConaughey's outfits put the movie into perspective for him.
"One of the first days filming, he was wearing a yellow Speedo with a halter top and I looked at him and was like, 'Man, this is really serious business that we're about to embark on'," he said. "Matthew set the tone for all of us."
