Cannes: Andie MacDowell Talks Favorite 'Magic Mike XXL' Scene (Video)

"Channing [Tatum] is a professional dancer, so his stuff is all extremely hot," MacDowell told THR. "Joe's like a real guy, and there's something that's really heartwarming about that."

Andie MacDowell sat down to discuss her latest film, Magic Mike XXL, and her "charming" co-stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at Cannes Film Festival.

"I'm kind of a sassy woman from the South who gets to touch Joe Manganiello — do more than touch, actually," joked MacDowell, who was in Cannes as a L'Oreal Paris ambassador, as she explained her role in the sequel.

The Magic Mike actress revealed her favorite scene in the film to be Manganiello's impromptu dance sequence inside of a convenience store. "I mean, Channing is a professional dancer, so his stuff is all extremely hot," she said. "Joe's like a real guy, and there's something that's really heartwarming about that. ... It's just a man's man trying to be sexy, and it's just adorable. You can't help but to just fall in love with him."

Talking about her experience at Cannes, MacDowell also recounted a mortifying moment when her size-zero couture dress ripped at the seams and had to be sewn back together moments before she hit the red carpet. "I got to the red carpet. I was the last person," she said. "I was mortified. I was trying to get up the stairs as fast as I could because the people were coming in. ... I wanted to cry."
