Like many other established stars, Channing Tatum went through a long, hard time before becoming as famous as he is today.

Among these, rugby is the subject he has the most potential for.

During the early 2000s, Channing Tatum went through many jobs, from construction worker, photo model, salesperson to… stripper.

Channing Tatum’s past as a stripper was recreated on the big screen in the movie `Magic Mike`.

Sharing about his time modeling for fashion brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani or Nautica, Channing Tatum said: `That job really changed my life in a positive direction because I had never seen it before.

Channing Tatum made the best of it, starting by appearing in a supporting role on the television series CSI: Miami.

Making a name for yourself in Hollywood

Two years after filming CSI: Miami, Channing Tatum had his first breakthrough with the movie Step Up.

Step Up was a big breakthrough for Channing Tatum for two reasons.

Channing Tatum is happy with his wife Jenna Dewan and daughter Everly.

In the post-Step Up era, Channing Tatum’s┬áhandsome and masculine appearance helps him become an ideal male protagonist in the eyes of action and romantic film directors.

Regarding action movies, despite participating in Public Enemies, Haywire or White House Down, Channing Tatum still stands out the most as the hero Duke in G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra – a blockbuster that grossed more than 300 million USD this summer.

Entertainment star and family man

One of the factors that contributed to Channing Tatum’s success is that he does not hesitate to respond to almost any request from the director, as long as it brings success to the film.

Friend Jonah Hill is one of the rare people who can receive a nod from Channing Tatum.

As a result, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have a great, `bromance` combination on the big screen with 21 Jump Street.

Right in its first weekend of release, 22 Jump Street took the top spot at the North American box office with $57.1 million and received showers of praise from both critics and fans.
