Channing Tatum Is Self-Aware

Channing Tatum is a terrible actor who somehow endeared himself to the public by dancing his way into their hearts. It’s an inspirational tale of a bro finding acceptance through hip hop ballet. Eh, but he still sucks at acting. In an interview with Details where they dress him effeminately and pose him like Victoria Beckham, Tatum says that, yea, he knows.

“You gotta do the Dear Johns. You gotta do The Vow. I’m conscious about why I did those parts, those movies. I wanted to learn from Rachel on The Vow. I wanted to learn from Lasse Hallström 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 know I’m not the best actor, but I hope my characters are getting better.”Details

At least he’s honest. And he gives pretty great interviews. Taking his interviewer drunk shooting, he spots a guy in a flowy robe who looks like Jesus.

“There goes Jesus,” Tatum said as we rolled along Sunset. And there He was in the crosswalk—latte in hand, robe flowing in His wake, fluttering across Fairfax Avenue. “I’d walk around in a man dress,” Tatum said. “It looks so comfortable. I’d do that all day long—walk around in a dress like Jesus.”

In summation, Channing Tatum is a terrible actor who’d like to walk around in a man dress all day long. Hey, after reading this, I think we’d get along pretty well. *Slips on plunging v-neck dress, twirls in front of mirror”
