Channing Tatum appeared on “Access Hollywood”, and used to opportunity to talk about one of the most AWKWARD embarrassing moments in his life…LOL
Everyone knows by now that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper prior to his acting career, with his days of exotic dancing inspiring the upcoming movie, “Magic Mike.”
While the 32-year-old hunk isn’t ashamed of his days of dollars and G-strings, the star admits there was one particular costume that still makes him cringe.
In his stripper days, Channing was talked into performing in a clown outfit by his fellow employees…this begs the question, where they trolling him??? “A clown outfit, true story — not making it up,” Channing told Access Hollywood on Saturday. “It was the worst idea that I had heard — and I had heard some bad ideas and seen some bad skits!”
Channing fought the “sexy Bozo” idea with his strip club higher-ups, but lost. HAHAHAHA
“I was like, ‘Clowns aren’t sexy — if anything they’re scary. Why is this gonna work? And they were just like, ‘Nah, nah — it kills, bro. It kills, bro. They’re gonna love it.’ I seriously want to meet these guys, they sound HILARIOUS.
“I danced to like, ‘99 Red Balloons’ or something, I come out and… crickets. Crickets!” he said, laughing. “People didn’t know if it was a joke [or] if it was supposed to be for real. No one cheered, no nothing. That was the last night I did that. I was like, ‘What did I tell you?!”
We KNOW a clown could not have been the only embarrassing costume for Channing. A Boy Scout uniform, which he wore on his first night of stripping while singing “Camp Granada” with members of his family in the audience.
OK. MOST UN-SEXY CHANNING TATUM STORY EVER, OVER. haha
