As soon as Channing Tatum appeared on our screens in the 2006 film Step Up, the actor has been our Hollywood crush for years.
In 2012, the actor — who used to be a stripper — got the internet all hot and bothered again after his performance in Magic Mike. If you didn’t have ‘Pony’ by Ginuwine stuck in your head for days, then you must rewatch.

Tatum, 40, revealed that bop cost $60,000 for the film to use. “That’s a lot of money and we’re an independent film. When we made that call and it got cleared, it was such a relief,” he told GQ U.K. in July 2012. “Because of our budget we thought we couldn’t have big epic music but as a producer, I was freaking out. If you go to a male strip club, they play big, epic music!”
In order to get in shape for the flick, Tatum revealed what motivated him to look good on camera. “I want to be the best athlete I can possibly be,” he shared. “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. I don’t work out because [puts on best meathead voice] ‘I want to get my chest bigger! I want to get huge arms.’”
These days, Tatum — who is recently single following his split from Jessie J — is still not shy about showing off his fit physique.
