Channing Tatum Keeps His Pants On For Out Magazine...The Irony!

Channing Tatum spills his past thrills (or lack off) while keeping his pants on in the pages of Out Magazine's June/July edition.

On his stripper movie, Magic Mike... “It’s risky. People say that women and the gay community will go see it – knock on wood – but I know straight guys won’t be like, ‘Yo, what’s up man – you wanna go see the stripping movie after the game tonight?’ I doubt they’ll have the balls to see it. What’s funny is that the girls don’t ask me questions about my stripping days, but straight guys want to know everything. It’s that fantasy element. It’s probably why a lot of females on Halloween are the whorey version of a ketchup bottle, or slutty nurse, which I love and respect – it’s liberating.”

On baring almost all... “I never enjoyed the taking-the-clothes-off part. You are on a stage with people yelling at you, and you feel you’re a rock star, but you’re nothing – you’re just a guy taking off his clothes, looking like a fool in a stupid outfit.”

On his career... “I’ve been acting for eight years now, and I feel I’m just starting to understand things. As soon as you think you’re the sh–, you’ll find 100 people that will point at you and laugh. I don’t ever want to be that person – I want to keep finding people I can learn from. That’s my entire journey in life.”

On Why MAGIC MIKE is an equal opportunity movie...“With Joe Manganiello naked in a movie, I think even straight guys are going to be, ‘I need to see that. That man is a specimen.’”

On working on his craft... “I went into that [No Country for Old Men] audition knowing that I was 15 years too young for the role…But I really fought to get the audition because I knew that I would come out a better actor because of the Coen brothers. I just wanted to be in the room with them.”

On what he learned from "Dear John"...“I loved it because it was a labor of love, every single part of it…You go through every single variation of the script, and you work on it with the director and the actress, and then you decide whether you can make it better with reshoots. I wish more actors would do it, because I think it would give more connection to what they’re doing and why they’re doing it.”

On Co-star Matt Bomer...“He’s obviously very good-looking and effortlessly cool, but he’s also one of the kindest, most open-hearted people I’ve ever known…More than anything, he just has a lust for life that makes him want to tell stories and to dig deeper than someone who looks like him might have to dig. He kind of reminds me of Steve McQueen in a lot of ways — completely authentic and comfortable in his own skin.”

Scoot over to now for thee entire article!
