Photos: Teenage Stripper days of Hollywood Channing Tatum

Many of his fans didn’t know Channing Tantum was an exotic dancer/stripper when he was 18/19 years old in Tampa Florida before he became a model, then an actor, and so this must have come as a shocker to fans.

The actor has admitted that he’s not ashamed of his strippers days because that job brought him to Hollywood. A female casting director saw him at one of these clubs, put him in Ricky Martin’s ‘She Bangs’ music video, which led to modelling jobs, and eventually Hollywood acting jobs.
