Being a movie star is hard work, especially when you’re expected to get a full-body wax. Just ask Channing Tatum.
Actually, you don’t need to ask him, because Ellen already did.
On a recent appearance on her show, Channing shed some light on the de-hairing process involved in shooting Magic Mike XXL. That’s when he made a shocking revelation — ginger, ahoy!
As he tells it:
“After they started they said, ‘Oh, no, you’re a ginger,’ — I have like a little red — and they’re like, ‘It’s always the worse for them.’ And I’m like, then why did you start? Why didn’t you tell me this beforehand?”
Maybe he’s not fully in the ginger club like these truly fine men, but now we’ll know what to expect the next time Channing invites us back to his place for a “cup of coffee.” Which will be never.
Luckily, there will be lots of skin to keep us distracted once the magic hits the big screens. Asked about one particularly spicy dance duo between Channing and DJ tWitch, Channing replied, “Spoiler alert. We do have a dance together.”
“In thongs?” asks Ellen, even the diligent journalist.
“No, there’s just nothing, there’s nothing — very little left to the imagination.”
Sounds like he’ll be giving Ben Affleck a run for his money.
