The Nice Guys is featured on current “Summer Movie Preview” issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, currently on stands. On the issue Russell Crowe talks about one particular scene he shot with Matt.

When Crowe and Bomer came to film a particularly physical scene, the Oscar winner calmed the younger actor’s nerves by making fun of his performance in a certain film about male strippers. “I had to strangle him at one point,” says Crowe. “I could tell Matt was a little bit tense, and I’m putting my hands around his throat, and just that milisecond before Shane called ‘Action!’ I just said ‘This one’s for Magic Mike!’ It made him relax, and we got on with the rest of the day’s work.”
