It's what every girl has been waiting for...
Channing Tatum shirtless as he shows off his stripper moves in the upcoming film"Magic Mike."
He is in Chicago to promote the movie, and he sat down with us this morning to give us the inside scoop.
Before making his big time debut, Tatum actually worked as a male stripper at a nightclub in Tampa, Florida. He was 18 at the time and his stage name was 'Chan Crawford.'
In 2010, he said he would enjoy making a movie about his experiences as a real-life stripper and that day has finally arrived!
In "Magic Mike," Tatum teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.
Tatum is also known for his roles in "Step Up,""Dear John,""The Vow,"and"21 Jump Street."
"Magic Mike" hits theaters on June 29. It also stars Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello.
