Channing Tatum: Stripping Past “A Little Crazy” But Beat Flipping Burgers

I was young and dumb and stupid and wanted to make a little money. You can work ten hours a day for minimum wage—that’s the opportunities for kids without a college education. Get some shit job that you’re really going to have to bust your hump for. Or you can try something else a little crazy.”

—Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, explaining his foray into erotic dancing, in the current issue of GQ Style.

  • Oh, ok.

    He pronounced lazy incorrectly.

    Has Hollywood been through him yet? Has it managed to heterosexualize him for mass consumption, meaning stupid clueless females? One wonders how many women have been paired with him for phony dates etc.

    Not “dumb and stupid”, sexy and smart seems more like it. And humble. No acting chops but kahhhyoot. Looking fwd to Mjc Mike.

  • Tim

    Looking forward to Magic Mike for one reason – Matt Bomer

  • HM

    His stripper pictures were gorgeous. The guy on the mag cover looks like someone who beats off to Snooki.

    Josh Hartnet has competition as President of the Republic Of ‘Over It’.

  • Cam

    He’s looking a little over rhoided.

  • Paul

    Tatum…”I was young and dumb and stupid”.

    That’s changed? At least he’s pretty

  • Azgaard

    @Paul: He did get older

  • Oh, ok.

    I think he’s way overrated. There are much hotter guys and calling him an actor should be a felony. I don’t hate him, I’m even going to see his new movie when it comes out…but I just don’t understand his career. That’s Hollyweird for you.

    It’s funny how the guys who started as borderline if not full on prostitutes get A-list potential careers. Have above average looks and give a few good bjs out back puts you on the fast track to super-stardom. I feel bad for the people who actually bother taking acting classes, studying hard in the best Preforming Arts schools, and doing stage plays hoping to achieve what really only takes sucking the right dicks.

    Pretty no-talents blow in and out of Hollywood interchangeably at the speed of light.

  • M


    Not as many as you’d think ;)

    Jenna is there for the long-haul.

  • Oh, ok.

    @M: Most celebrity beards are, it’s in their contracts.

  • Kyle

    He is one fugly lookin dude.
