The Magic Mike star covers the August issue of the magazine where he talks about everything from his wife to working with his idols and, of course, his time as a stripper. So again, would he ever get back up on that stage for real and not just for a movie?
“Well, 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.”
Channing you just made so many people so happy. The whole Vanity Fair profile is worth a read, but allow me to give you some of the highlights, aka, the reasons we all love Channing Tatum.
On his wife giving birth: “You feel helpless. We like to think of ourselves as big, strong men, and we could handle whatever situation. And reality is [that women] are so much stronger than we could ever be. There’s a reason why we weren’t given that job, evolutionary or whatever. My wife, she’s a warrior.”
On working with his Hollywood heroes: I got to work with Kurt Russell. I mean, holy shit! It was surreal to walk on set of the Tarantino movie and hear his laugh, a laugh I’ve heard for years. I grew up on his movies. And there he is, before I’ve even seen him, laughing and cutting up. And Sam Jackson! These guys, they’re exactly what you would think watching their movies. I think we as fans put [stars] on a pedestal. You’re like, Oh, they must be so cool, and when you meet them, sometimes they might not really be like that—that’s not their fault. But these two guys actually are like that.
On doing things he wants to: I think for a while I’m going to try to make movies that, even if they don’t make a dollar, I’ll still be so proud to be a part of them that it won’t matter.
Check out the rest of his profile here. It’s fantastic. But first, watch Channing Tatum bust out some dance moves below. His “Vogue” is amazing.
