Actor Channing Tatum has revealed that wife Jeena Dewan is approving his stripper moves in the upcoming ‘Magic Mike’ sequel. Tatum, 34, and his wife, 33, are together since meeting on the set of ‘Step Up’ in 2006, reported People magazine.
“Our two choreographers on the movie, they’re really, really good friends (with Jenna). So I work it out with them and then I go show Jenna for approval,” said Tatum, who is is currently filming in Savannah. The actor said his wife is thrilled to see him jump back into the thong for ‘Magic Mike XXL’.
“She actually loves ‘Magic Mike’, believe it or not. It’s an interesting thing that actors have to deal with. We’re 10 years into it now, so it’s kind of old hat – we’ve moved past it,” he added. Tatum, who was a stripper in the past, is also thankful that his wife understands the emotions he have with the film.
“If I was just doing some movie about strippers, then she’d probably be like, ‘Why do you want to do that?’. But it started off as a story that I really love, and it’s grown into something that I love even more because it’s a weird world that I experienced in my real life.”
