Channing Tatum is probably one of the hottest actors around right now thanks to a string of hugely successful movies, and perhaps also those abs.
Having made his acting debut in Coach Carter, Channing has gone on play a diverse range of characters from the likes of a stripped in Magic Mike to full-throttle action hero in White House Down. And, we can’t forget his legendary bro-mance with co-star, Jonah Hill in the 21 Jump Street series.
The role which made us all sit up and take notice, though, was undoubtedly as Tyler in Step Up, in which he showcased his epic break-dancing abilities. Yes, that’s right, we did just say break-dancing. If you haven’t seen it (where have you been?!) then we suggest you make it your mission to enjoy that as soon as possible.
It was actually on the set of Step Up that Channing met his now-wife, Jenna Dewan. Since marrying in 2009, the pair have become parents to daughter, Everly. And, it seems that fatherhood is a role Channing has found pretty hard in comparison to his endless list of film credits, as he told reporters: “As a new father, nothing is more important or scary than protecting a daughter.” All together now – aww…
Most recently, Channing starred as real-life wrestler, Mark Schultz in Foxcatcher, which was nominated for a whopping five Oscars. And, with Magic Mike XXL hitting cinemas in July, it looks as though Channing’s star is only set to rise even higher.
As it happens, today is Channing’s birthday. So, in celebration, we thought we’d compile some of our favourite moments in pictures.
Whether he’s playing the funny man, flashing those abs or showing off his dance moves, there are so many reasons we love Channing Tatum. Take a look back with us at some of his hottest moments…
