Channing Tatum slams one-night stands

Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum never had any interest in “chasing girls”.

The star is married to actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum and together they are expecting their first child.

The 32-year-old Hollywood hunk is pleased to have settled down and says he could never imagine playing the field.

“No, I was never that kind of guy,” he assured the British edition of OK! magazine.

“I believed in true romance; one-night stands are always going to leave you feeling cold and empty. I was always looking for the real thing, romance, and all that. I love being married. I never liked the idea of going to bars and chasing girls. Some guys might enjoy that, but I always wanted to find that one special woman which I did when I met Jenna.”

Whereas Channing lives the Hollywood lifestyle now, he was born and raised in Alabama and moved to Mississippi when he was six.

The actor believes his southern upbringing has something to do with his attitude towards women.

“It teaches you to be a gentleman and to be very respectful and polite to women. I would get a slap on the back of my head if I didn’t open the door for my mother or sister. The greatest compliment anyone could ever pay me would be to say that I’m a gentleman,” he smiled.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
