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:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
