Step aside, boys! Jada Pinkett Smith confirmed during an interview on Monday, Sept. 22, with Queen Latifah that she's taking on a role in the Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike XXL.
"You know, Channing [Tatum] and [director] Gregory [Jacobs] and Warner Bros. really took a chance," the Gotham actress said of her role. "There was a character written for a male that they wanted to turn into a female," she explained.
Although Pinkett Smith said she "can't really reveal" much about her character just yet, she did say that fans won't be seeing her strip. "[It's] not one of those [characters]! … But I'm excited about it," she told the talk show host.
"I'm used to being around beefcake like that because you know who I live with!" she joked of husband Will Smith. "I'm used to that kind of beefcake-ness in my environment. I can handle it!"
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell have also been added to the film.
