We’ve heard all about Shia LaBeouf's wild side, but we didn’t think Channing Tatum did anything naughty (aside from taking his clothes off)!
But it turns out, Channing used to be bad to the
Channing revealed in an interview with GQ magazine that back in 2006, he and Shia got so sh*tfaced, they decided to do some property damage!
The two were co-starring in the movie A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints at the time. The director instructed the boys to bond and get to know each other.
And so began their evening of complete debauchery!
Shia actually revealed this story in 2008, saying then:
"Channing was supposed to be the head honcho in the movie, so he goes, 'All right, you see that bookstore? Somebody throw a rock. Let's break in and steal a Spider-Man bookmark.' And Peter [Tambakis] and me look at each other like, 'Dude, what? Are you f*cking kidding me?'"
He then spilled that since none of the other guys would do it, Channing smashed the window to pieces himself!
But hold on, because there are always two sides to a story and the 22 Jump Street star remembers the night going down a bit differently!
Channing confessed this week:
"Me and Shia, I think we had just met that day. We were, like, 'What shall we go out and do?' We were drinking. And I think our initial thing was 'Alright, let's go out and try and get in a fight!' This was just young, dumb idiot actors thinking that that's going to bond us. Because we'll shed blood together, blah, blah, blah. I definitely kicked in a window that night. But it wasn't Barnes and Nobles. Just a window. We were just running and being hoodlums and throwing trash bags down streets and just being stupid. I've never seen him since then.”
Wowzas. So, you’re repentant for your bad behavior, right Mr. Tatum?
The dad of 11-month-old daughter Everly actually laughed about these highly illegal antics, explaining:
"In hindsight it's the funniest thing in the world—just typical actors trying too hard. It's only fun because we didn't get caught…that I can have perspective on it now and know it was stupid. I don't think we were thinking.”
K, well, some poor person had to PAY for your prank-filled evening when they replaced the window you broke.
They weren't laughing. Just sayin’.
We know his hooligan days are behind him though. We’re much more interested in Channing the sex machine than Channing the criminal!
