The 'Magic Mike' star, 25, understands working in Hollywood means he's likely to be slammed with hurtful comments about his appearance but he's adamant he won't let the negative jibes affect his confidence or force him to cover up.

He explained to Yahoo Style: "Less is more. I have learned to embrace my natural imperfections, rather than hiding them behind lots of product and makeup."

However, one product the handsome actor does rely on is dry shampoo, which he borrows from his girlfriend Marloes Hors, because he doesn't like to wash his hair too much.

He said: "I've heard that washing your hair everyday is not great for you. So I use dry shampoo on the days where I'm not washing my hair. It's great when you're on the go."

As well as keeping on top of his physical appearance, Alex likes to make sure he's mentally on top form by doing yoga.

He combines that with a healthy diet and his new-found love for dancing, and the talented hunk feels fit and well.

He added: "I had two left feet before I did 'Magic Mike.' I didn't think you could teach someone how to dance."
