I think the action movies in the 80s and 90s were different. It was a testosterone age. Steven Seagal, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Sylvester Stallone - they fuelled my childhood. But now I don't think I'd like to do just action, I don't enjoy that. — Channing Tatum

I was not good in school. I could never read very fast or very well. I got tested for learning disabilities, for dyslexia. Then I got put on Ritalin and Dexedrine. I took those starting in the eighth grade. As soon as they pumped that drug into me, it would focus me right in. — Channing Tatum

I don't think there's a date minimum or maximum. I don't get the whole 'All right, you've got to wait three days to call after the date.' If I got a number from a girl, I'd call that night. There's no science to it for me. You just do what it is that you feel like doing. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 247241

I just love cake, confetti cake, to be specific. It has little colored candies inside the cake, and then you get the confetti icing, which is really hard to find sometimes.

Whatever the fighting is - boxing, fighting, Judo, Thai boxing, it's how much you know doing that. Some people just know how some people move. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1299790

It's just weird that for some people, art is a luxury. My parents had no artistic outlet. Some people pass down music to their kids, but I couldn't tell you what my mom's or dad's favorite song is. So when I started going out into the world, I was drawn to people who knew about movies, art, even fashion. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1869160

I really get inspired by songs. Like, if I hear a thug 'Want to kill ya' song, I'm ready to go out and get crazy. Or if you hear this really sexual, sensual slow song, I want to go have sex. I'm very animalistic when it comes to stuff like that. Very basic emotions. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 656753

You don't try any less hard on the ones that don't. I've gotten lucky to work with some amazingly talented people that have helped the ones that have worked work. I think you just have to keep doing the stories you love and the characters that you love and are drawn to. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 614693

Channing Tatum Quotes 851990

I think the superstar thing is completely arbitrary. It's all about who had a movie that did well one weekend. Then, if you have a movie that doesn't do well the next weekend, then, all of the sudden, you've fallen from whatever. So it doesn't really mean anything for me. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 2130771

Channing Tatum Quotes 163516

If it wasn't for her literally doing my homework for me, I would not have even graduated high school. Guaranteed ... My mom always said, 'Luck is nothing but preparation and opportunity.'

Just so I don't feel ... uneducated. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 165563

If I can still be successful making films and no-one will ever know me, then that would be great. Because we (actors) just like to do what we do. People who are doing it for fame, I don't know if they ever get really successful. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 187710

I've never studied the classics, but I'd like to. My teacher offered to show me how the Greeks were able to sculpt someone perfectly. From there, you can go off and experiment - sort of like jazz. Once you learn to play anything, you can break the form and go and do something even bigger. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 197630

I really like doing action. It's one of those things where I negotiate the world physically, I think, more than mentally. I enjoy running and jumping. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 198800

As actors you're always afraid to go too far but Lasse Hallstrom wants you to go too far. He wants you to do it wrong, to be over-the-top, and that's so freeing to be able to think 'Now I can try and be bad'. There's no pressure on you and you don't feel you can make a mistake. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 381954

No, I was never that kind of guy. I believed in true romance; one-night stands are always going to leave you feeling cold and empty. I was always looking for the real thing, romance, and all that. I love being married. I never liked the idea of going to bars and chasing girls. Some guys might enjoy that, but I always wanted to find that one special woman, which I did when I met Jenna. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 390656

Channing Tatum Quotes 398678

For a time, it would work well. then it worked less and my pain was more. I would go through wild bouts of depression, horrible comedowns. I understand why kids kill themselves. I absolutely do. You feel terrible. You feel soul-less. "I'll never do it to my child". — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 410551

I like doing this stuff [stunts] though, it's kind of the whole reason that you want to do the movie. When you're reading it you're like, "Oh, I get to dive out a window? Cool! I get to jump off a building? Great!" So I love doing that stuff, it's like the stuff we used to do in high school to be stupid and fun. — Channing Tatum

I've been on so many movies. Generally, I haven't gotten to be on the ground level. As of two years ago, in 'Dear John,' I got to really be on the ground floor. I wasn't a producer.

Channing Tatum Quotes 721936

Channing Tatum Quotes 788059

With my career in general, I feel like I'm finally getting to do the roles that I've always wanted to do.

Channing Tatum Quotes 1142724

I don't want to do only movies that I'm in. I definitely want to start to branch out and do TV and stuff that I'm not in and really make a good run at it as a production. I'm probably going to take a break from acting after a little while because I've enjoyed the developmental process so much.

Channing Tatum Quotes 1155236

I think, even a lot of people that make movies forget is that, in my mind, a movie should work with the sound off. You should be able to watch a movie without the sound and understand what's going on. That's your job, to build a series of chronological images that tell the story. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1169295

I've always loved movies but everyone loves movies, so I never conceived of the fact that I could actually be in them.

Then, a bunch of years later, I'm acting. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1267936

Channing Tatum Quotes 1395596

I don't like doing action movies. They're not that interesting ... it's fun to do the physical element but the really fun stuff, like running into exploding buildings, they won't let you do.

There's something exhilarating about being open and honest. — Channing Tatum

I used to work at a puppy nursery. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1464569

Channing Tatum Quotes 1487066

I talk different, I walk different, everything. I don't have one single bad memory [there]. Not one. It was my sanctuary. I hated school, wasn't good in school, and me and my dad butted heads about that. But nothing mattered when I went home to Alabama. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1582093

There's only a few directors that can do what Emmerich does on an international scale and on an action scale. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 1639447

Channing Tatum Quotes 1866032

Audiences and critics they don't like seeing what happens in real life. Why do you think comedies make all the money at the box office? People want to go and laugh. I can understand that. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 2003105

I was terrified to do 'G.I. Joe.' I had no idea how to do one of those movies. I was kind of scared. You know, if one of those doesn't work, it's a huge hit on your career. People are like, 'Well he couldn't make a $170 million movie work. I don't want him in my film.' — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 2028095

Channing Tatum Quotes 2076408

I don't want any sports anymore, except fighting which is the only sport I really watch - whether it's boxing or UFC. I don't know why. I think maybe it's an aspiration I didn't get the chance to explore more, but I don't think my father expected anything from me, I think it's more what I put on myself. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 2100924

I would love to sing. I would love to do a musical, but I wouldn't say that that singing is my strong suit. — Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum Quotes 2101829

I think all jocks have a sensitive side. It's just, will they show it to anybody? Will they let their guard down and stop being tough and the cool jock guy around their friends, or just relax?

Soccer was the first sport that my parents put me in, and ultimately, all the parents kind of came over to my mom and were, 'We think Channing would be better at football ... We love him, he's really great, but he's kind of hurting our children.' I was just a little wild. — Channing Tatum

Truthfully, this is how I approach my workout: I want to be the best athlete I can possibly be. If I can out-perform some of the better athletes then I'm happy. When I look at the NFL or the NBA, these guys look how I want to look - it's useable, functional muscle. — Channing Tatum
