Did you know that Channing Tatum isn't really a good actor.
Don't ask us, ask him, as that's what he admits in the February issue of Details magazine in which he opens up about some of his early roles in Dear John and The Vow.
"I'm conscious about why I did those parts, those movies," Tatum explains. "I wanted to learn from Rachel [McAdams] on The Vow. I wanted to learn from Lasse Hallstrom on Dear John -- he did The Cider House Rules and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I didn't go to acting school, so my knowledge of story, filmmaking and character comes from just being on set and doing it."
"I really don't want to be in any more movies that I don't produce," he says. "Unless it's with one of the 10 directors that I really want to work with, I don't have any interest in not being on the ground floor of creating it."
So his latest project, Magic Mike, he teamed up with director Steven Soderbergh to tell a story in which is based loosely on his time as a stripper in Florida before he became famous.
"It's really about that world: the people and the decisions you have to make. It's not as dark as you might think. Soderbergh really had a clear vision as far as not making it overly sexual, overly dark."
