Hunky Channing Tatum is the cover boy for the March 2011 All-American Style Issue of GQ Magazine, which hits newsstands on February 22nd. Tatum, sporting Dolce & Gabbana on the cover photo by Nathaniel Goldberg, is busy promoting his new action flick The Eagle.
In his interview with the men’s fashion mag he opened up about his stripper past, completing his own stunts and his hopes for the future among other things. Check out some highlights below:
On his stint as a male stripper: “I had wanted to tell people. I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t regret one thing. I’m not a person who hides shit.”
On doing back-flips: “You know when someone is so nervous about something, it makes you doubt yourself? Like on Step Up, I was going to do this backﬂip off the car. That’s something I do, like, all the time. I just do backﬂips off things. By the time it was time to do it, I was, like, shaking, because everyone was all, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ But then I did it, and it was ﬁne.”
On landing bigger and better roles. “No one’s calling me for lawyer roles. I still have a lot to do to prove myself.”
On future ambitions: “There are so many things I want to do. Like, I want to get an artist, a musician, a photographer and a bunch of dancers that I know, and just travel across Africa and just film it and just see what happens. Do and learn as much as I possibly can. Lucky, I have a lot more time.”
