Ladies, we have three reasons why you need to see Think Like A Man Too: skin, skin and more skin! The sequel to the 2012 romantic comedy hits theaters next Friday and let’s just say it’s the perfect film to catch if you enjoy good laughs and Hollywood eye candy!
Along with numerous celebrity cameos and laugh-out-loud moments, the film delivers a super-sexy dose of Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart, Terrence Jenkins, Romany Malco and Jerry Ferrara on the streets of Las Vegas — shirtless! HelloBeautiful caught up with the cast at their press junket in Beverly Hills on Saturday and they revealed what it took to look so good on-screen.
Kevin, who plays happily separated Cedric, said the guys turned the movie set into a gym. “We motivated each other. I’ll be the first to say, I got a good look at my body in Think Like A Man one and I said ewwww,” he joked. “So coming in to part two, we all wanted to come in looking different, looking better…So on the set, we had nothing but gym material. We had push bars and ab rollers.”
“You always want to up the ante and going into part two we knew we would be in Vegas, we’re around water, we’re half naked in the stripper scene so we had to be nice on a female’s eyes,” he added.
According to producer Will Packer, the sure-to-be-fan-favorite strip club scene wasn’t in the original script. “The scene was originally scripted a little bit different and we talked about what we could do to give it some oomph. I will say once it was revealed…everyone was going to have to be shirts off, half-dressed, it was amazing how in the morning everybody was in the gym,” he shared, laughing.
“Diets changed,” Kevin chimed in. “I think the biggest fear of an actor, a man, is watching that scene with a live audience and hearing women go ‘ewwww.’ That’s your biggest fear so we tried to cram that workout in as fast as we could.”
Terrence J, who said he was most likely to have the most baby oil on set, shared that Romany was the biggest fitness guru in the bunch. “We had Romney so even if we didn’t have gym material, he would make workouts out of anything,” he said.
And we can’t forget about the ladies! Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, Meagan Good and Lala Anthony shined on camera. The future Mrs. Dwyane Wade said the project was something she just couldn’t pass up.
“Anytime there’s a good thing, you want more. I think we figured out how to give all the characters that you love, the fun you look forward to but some new surprises,” she gushed. “And it’s way funnier than the first one!”
Think Like a Man Too, inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, hits theaters Friday, June 20. Watch the trailer below!
