Although Channing Tatum plays a sexy stripper in Magic Mike XXL, that doesn’t mean you should quit your day job and become one!
In case you didn’t know, the 35-year-old worked as an exotic dancer when he was 19!
While this experience would later influence the hit blockbuster, the hunk warns any potential booty shakers to think twice before pursuing this occupation!
On Monday, at the Sydney premiere of the much-anticipated sequel, the Alabama-native said:
“I am not sure I could recommend it.”
The Foxcatcher star doesn’t regret his past job, but he is definitely glad it’s over, revealing:
“But it was a good time in my life. It was one complete year of down-the-rabbit-hole crazy. I am glad I moved on … it definitely has some seedy, darker sides.”
Although he won’t elaborate on what “crazy” things happened, the thespian revealed he:
“Did a lot of bad things for one dollar bills.”
Oh my! Guess we can use our imagination!
But seriously, we’re just so glad Channing is now an actor and no longer has to strip to make a living!
