Channing Tatum Joked He Should Become A Better Actor So He Can Work Out Less
Yahoo! says that Channing Tatum was on The Kelly Clarkson Show and talked about how his body is highly unrealistic and it only looks like that because his job is to work out all the time. But Channing is thinking of maybe going about his job in a different way. Maybe instead of being super buff, he’ll become a super talented actor? Oh yeah, who cares about Joe Manganiello‘s pecs–Magic Mike would have been just as successful if it was an Oscar movie.
Channing was on the show to talk with Kelly Clarkson about his life and fatherhood and his book, The One And Only Sparkella, a children’s book about an imaginative fun little girl and her father. Channing and Kelly got into mushy parental shit and bonded over reading books to their kids. Channing explained he wrote the book because he found there weren’t many books about little girls and their fathers. The exchange was very wholesome and sweet so I’ll save my “Daddy” jokes for now and just let you know I thought of a lot of them.
Channing talked to Kelly about balancing his work and life schedules and joked that he should maybe consider becoming a better actor so that he can work out less.
“As someone who works out for a job, I promise you I would not look like this unless I had to be naked in most of my movies mostly. At some point I have to get better at acting so I don’t have to be naked in all of them.”
I don’t see why Channing being slightly less fit should impact the amount of Channing Tatum nudity we’re blessed with, but whatever. Channing gave props to the regular people of the world who don’t have celebrity money or free time on their hands and still have to stay fit:
“I literally get to work out as a job and it’s still hard. I can’t imagine people who have a 9-5 job, who have kids at home, and where do they get the energy and the time to actually focus on themselves?”
Cut to Jenna Dewan sending an email to her lawyer saying: “Don’t let Channing fuck up my Magic Mike money by getting less buff.” But I hope that Henry Cavill never hears about this because I don’t need him to be a good actor, I need him to swing a sword around like a dehydrated sex-machine warrior.
