“To thong or not to thong?” – That is Channing’s question


It is no secret that Channing Tatum began his career working as a male stripper in a nightclub after he finished high school in the late 90’s.

After all, it was his career as a stripper that eventually led him to star in his most popular role to date, Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL.

But with the sequel to our all-time favourite stripping movie almost ready for release, we have to wonder, is Mr Tatum going to hang up his thong for good?

In a cover interview for next month’s Vanity Fair, the 35-year-old discussed the awkwardness of getting your kit off on stage but, he also admitted that he may have one (or two) last performances left in him.

“Well, we’re going to start a Magic Mike show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never. I wouldn’t mind going out there and doing it one more time. Or maybe twice,” the Foxcatcher star revealed.

Group trip to Vegas, anyone?

“ But, you know,” he continued, “every time I’ve put on a thong and am getting ready to walk onstage again, I’m like, ‘Why do I want to do this?’ It’s very uncomfortable to be in a thong in front of a thousand people.”

At least we know that Mrs Dewan-Tatum is on our side when it comes to her husband’s nudity. Speaking about the upcoming Magic Mike XXL, Jenna said to her husband “You cannot have a movie without these guys getting in thongs.”

Hear, hear!
