Tatum: I’d strip again

Channing Tatum isn’t sure if he’s good at being a dad.

The 35-year-old actor performed in a local nightclub before making his film debut in 2005 film Coach Carter. While he has now gone on to become one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Channing wouldn’t rule out getting his kit off again.

“We’re going to start a [Magic Mike] show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never. I wouldn’t mind going out there and doing it one more time. Or maybe twice,” he confessed to Vanity Fair. “But, you know, every time I’ve put on a thong and am getting ready to walk onstage again, I’m like, ‘Why do I want to do this?’ It’s very uncomfortable to be in a thong in front of a thousand people.’”

Channing’s time as a stripper inspired 2012 film Magic Mike, and he will soon be seen showing off his toned physique in the sequel Magic Mike XXL.

He also showed off his dance moves in 2006 film Step Up, where he met wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

“Me and Jenna just saw Step Up on TV, and we watched it for two seconds,” he laughed. “We made that ten years ago or something. It was hard because you’re like, ‘Wow, I remember it being so much better.’ Then other times you’re like, ‘I remember it being worse.’”

The couple married in 2009 and welcomed daughter Everly in 2013. While Channing sang his wife’s praises as a parent to the outlet, he wasn’t so sure about his own abilities.

“Jenna is a super mom. There’s no other way to say it. She is there every single second, every single day,” he said. “I love being a dad. They’re like little mirrors running around. They show you things about yourself you wouldn’t pay attention to before. Jenna says it all the time: 'Oh, my God, that is so you right there.' But I don’t know if I’m good at it."
