It’s hard to believe that Channing Tatum would want to be anyone but himself. The former exotic dancer has been at the very top of Hollywood’s “it-list” since his huge box-office hit Magic Mike was released last summer. Since then, he’s been offered a slew of new roles, been named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” and has welcomed a new baby girl, named Everly, with wife Jenna Dewan into his home.
Tatum has been quoted as saying: “I wouldn’t mind being the male Jennifer Lawrence; I think she’s incredibly cool.” Lawrence seems to be one of the most laid-back and “real” stars around today. It’s not surprising that her peers admire her!
Tatum also touched on his sex-symbol status and how bizarre it is to him, as he finds it difficult to keep himself in shape.
"I’m a fat kid on the inside," he jokes. "I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25-30 pounds between movies. I feel like I have to do a chess movie that requires very little movement at some point, just so I can eat pizza and play chess on the beach all day."
He then added: “And then [I’d] eat more pizza and cheeseburgers and drink beer. That’d be amazing. I’d give anything for that. I gotta figure that movie out.”
We will keep our eyes peeled, Channing!
