Channing is featured in the new issue of New York Times Magazine … with this great article!
He has gone from being a stripper in Florida to one of Hollywood’s top-earning actors. What does that do to a person?
Earlier this year, a university in Illinois called Robert Morris decided to offer scholarships to prospective members of its new varsity video-game team. At a time when mathletes, chess kings and all manner of nerds have avenged themselves thoroughly and far beyond the horn-rimmed realm of Silicon Valley, this piece of news shouldn’t have raised any hackles. Perhaps more surprising has been the attention suddenly focused on the high school athlete, so often doomed to a more bitter fate. In February, the satirist Jason Headley released a web short called “It Doesn’t Get Better” — a spoof of the “It Gets Better” campaign against bullying — in which erstwhile football captains and homecoming queens warn that life goes swiftly downhill after graduation. In June, the journal Child Development published a study that showed that popular adolescents were more likely to abuse drugs and commit crimes.
In Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 film “Magic Mike,” we meet the title character, played by Channing Tatum, as he emerges from postcoital slumber into a beer-colored Tampa morning, dragging his remarkable body — huge shoulders, tiny waist, a bas-relief of bare buttocks — to the bathroom to shave his pubic hair. “Foxcatcher,” the new film by Bennett Miller, opens to a somewhat different expression of Tatum’s intense and bankable physicality: the figure of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz grappling violently on the mat with a dummy, the camera trained on his squirming fingers and misshapen ears, the microphone uncomfortably sensitive to the sound of his panting. After practice, Schultz retreats to a grim brown apartment where the lampshades don’t entirely cover the bulbs, and where a gold medal in a velveteen case seems to offer hollow consolation. This is a Tatum role bereft of sexual glamour; the jock has come crashing down to earth.
“Foxcatcher” explores the true-life relationship between Schultz and John E. du Pont, who in 1996 murdered Schultz’s brother Dave, also an Olympic champion wrestler. It’s a cautionary tale, Tatum says. And for all its libidinal swagger, so is “Magic Mike,” whose script was based on Tatum’s own experience parlaying his football physique into work as a stripper in Florida at age 19. Both films speak to the limits of physicality, to the hazard of betting early on one’s body. Joseph Allen, a psychologist at the University of Virginia who was the lead author of the study on popular kids published in Child Development, has a cute term for this: “the high school reunion effect,” in which the beautiful ones return looking diminished, to the quiet glee of rehabilitated nerds in their Audis. Tatum, if he hadn’t stumbled into movie stardom — hardly the career he dreamed of while on the football field at Tampa Catholic High School — might have been just such a casualty, and he knows it well.
Redbook.com gives us this fun interview with Chan about his new film, dancing with Jenna and watching Jenna’s sex scenes.
REDBOOK: Your new animated movie The Book of Life blends Mexican folklore with a love triangle and a rock musical. What made you excited to work on it?
CT: I grew up in Florida, so I have an attachment to the Latin world. I’ve always been interested in the Mexican Day of the Dead—people painting their faces like skulls—and this movie shows it all in a gorgeous way. My character, Joaquin, is more of a fighter than a singer, so I just got to make a lot of kung fu noises. I do want to sing in a movie someday, though.
RB: I’ve heard you’re a fan of the TV show The Biggest Loser. What do you love about it?
CT: You just see people that have it in them—they don’t want to be the size that they are—and it’s such an emotional thing for them. I can relate to that on a lot of levels. I fluctuate almost 20 to 30 pounds in between roles, just because dieting sucks the color out of life for me. I don’t mind working out—that’s fun in a way—especially if you find people to do it with.
RB: Is it weird to watch your wife Jenna Dewan- Tatum’s love scenes? They’re pretty sexy—especially on Witches of East End.
CT: Yeah, of course. I mean, she’s a very sexy individual, which is obviously why I’m with her—
RB: Only reason? Tsk-tsk.
CT: [Laughs] There are many reasons! But that is definitely very high on the list. She watches when I do love scenes too, and we’ve had to kind of find our way with it. She’ll cover my eyes, and I’ll cover hers. It’s all in good fun.
RB: Is your 1-year-old daughter, Everly, more of a little Channing or a little Jenna?
CT: She has moments of both, but right now I’d say she’s like me. I can’t sit still and pretty much run into everything at full speed.
RB: You and Jenna met on the dance movie Step Up. So, I’m assuming you two decide who changes Everly’s diaper via dance battle.
CT: That would be amazing! Dance battles do sort of happen, to be honest. When we wake up in the morning we put on music, and while Everly’s eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid. Changing the baby is an intermission—but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it’s almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she’s bridging out of it and doing some jujitsu windmill. It’s pretty intense.
RB: You and Jenna didn’t date until after Step Up had wrapped. What made you step up then and not sooner?
CT: We were basically together on the movie. It’s interesting now, because we can watch it and see; we can go, “Oh, wow, that was actually our real first kiss.” As soon as the movie wrapped, we went back to L.A. and were together, and together ever since—never broken up. That’s nine years…
RB: So even though it was a scene for a movie, that kiss counts to you.
CT: It felt different in that cameras and about 30 sweaty grips were all around—but not really. I don’t know how to explain it. It definitely counted. We were both obviously reeling from it. And we liked it enough to keep coming back. —As told to Kate Sullivan
Channing Tatum called the show with big news about the “Magic Mike” sequel, but he wasn’t calling for Ellen.
Today spoke with Channing on his new film “The Book of Life” and they even made him his very own “Channing’s Book of Life”
People.com spoke with Channing about Magic Mike XXL while doing press for his new film The Book of Life.
Channing Tatum’s wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is thrilled to see him jump back into the thong for Magic Mike XXL – but she still has to approve the moves.
“Our two choreographers on the movie, they’re really, really good friends [with Jenna],” Tatum told PEOPLE at Saturday’s New York City press conference for the animated film The Book of Life, in which he voices the character of Joaquin. “So I work it out with them and then I go show Jenna for approval.”
Tatum, 34, and his wife, 33, together since meeting on the set of Step Up in 2006, tied the knot three years later and welcomed daughter Everly, now 16 months, in 2013.
Even though her husband “still doesn’t like seeing her kiss other people,” they’re both actors, so they know his sexy stripteases are just part of the daily (bump and) grind.
“She actually loves Magic Mike, believe it or not,” says Tatum. “It’s an interesting thing that actors have to deal with. We’re 10 years into it now, so it’s kind of old hat – we’ve moved past it.”
But Dewan-Tatum is particularly understanding, because the Magic Mike movies are so close to her husband’s heart – and for a good reason.
“If I was just doing some movie about strippers, then she’d probably be like, ‘Why do you want to do that?’ ” says Tatum. “But it started off as a story that I really love, and it’s grown into something that I love even more because it’s a weird world that I experienced in my real life.”
Magic Mike and its sequel, which is currently filming in Savannah, were inspired by Tatum’s own experiences as a stripper in Florida.
“It’s just a part of me telling some part of my life,” he says. “And she understands that.”
The actor, who described himself as an ‘American kid from the South,’ confessed he didn’t know much about Mexican culture before taking on his first animated role as Joaquin in the Jorge Gutierrez-directed movie.
Channing Tatum is starring in his first animated role in “The Book of Life.” But the lessons he took from playing the role of Joaquin far surpassed his first-time voiceover work.
“I really relied heavily on my own Mexican culture and heritage,” the 34-year-old actor quipped during a press conference for the film in New York on Saturday.
“I’m kidding … I’m just an American kid from the South, so I didn’t really know anything about the Mexican culture,” he confessed.
Still, Tatum was immersed in the culture and its traditions such as Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, a central focus of the film.
While he initially was hesitant about how a topic like death could be captivated in a children’s movie, the father-of-one eventually embraced the way Mexican culture celebrates the deceased.
“I think it’s such a beautiful way of looking at it,” he told the Daily News. “It doesn’t deal with it as death as in they’re gone, and that’s why it’s literally the land of the remembered.”
In thinking about his own child with wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, 1-year-old Evelyn, the actor felt the movie was a good way to discuss the topic of death in a way kids would understand and not be fearful of it.
“I think it’s a really safe and beautiful way to talk about it,” he told The News about the Jorge Gutierrez-directed film. “It’s going to happen eventually, (so) it’s better to learn about it in a beautiful fiction world than in real life first.”
The colorful movie, also starring Zoe Saldana (Maria) and Diego Luna (Manolo), was produced by Reel FX Creative Studios and Tatum boasted about its work.
“It looked like a magical piñata burst open and the Mexican culture fell out,” he said, describing the film’s animation at the press conference.
But it wasn’t the illustrations, the color, or even the script that drew Tatum to the project.
“(Jorge) is the whole reason why I signed on to this,” he said of the director.
“He shared a very personal story that almost moved me to tears,” Tatum said although he would not divulge the details behind Gutierrez’s story. “I knew that if this movie had any amount of that in it, it was going to be truly … emotional and beautiful.”
