'Magic Mike' star Channing Tatum has confessed that he's never grew up wanting to be an actor, but it was his good looks that won his roles in the film industry.
The star, who was once a stripper, spoke candidly about how lucky he's been to get prominent roles but attributes that more to his appearance than his acting abilities, but he realises that good looks don't last forever.
Talking to T2, Channing said: I just don't get it when I hear people say, 'I'm fighting my looks! I'm too pretty!' My parents are great looking people and I won the genetic lottery there. And, yes, you get more jobs because of those good genes. But your looks can't define you forever. Your acting will do it eventually."
Channing is married to his 'Step Up' co-star Jenna Dewan, continued: "I never wanted to be an actor, and I had no artistic ambitions growing up. It all just fell into my lap.
"My looks got me into the industry, but it's taken me eight years to figure out the acting part."
Following from the positive reactions to 'Magic Mike', it's clear that Channing is very good at what he does - especially as he's hinted that a "bigger" sequel could be in the works.
