The actress made the surpising announcement while visiting the Queen Latifah Show. Also adding that her role in the movie wasn't truly for her.
"It was a character written for a male that they wanted to turn into a female," Pinkett Smith said. She won't be dancing, but the actress said that filming has been a lot of fun (duh, it's "Magic Mike"). "I'm used to being around beefcake because you know who I live with!" she joked.
According to Deadline.com, news of her role in Magic Mike had been suspected few weeks ago. But also hints that she will be a strip club owner in the movie.
"Magic Mike XXL" is set for release on July 1, 2015.
