Channing Matthew Tatum was born on April 26, 1980 (age 42 years) in Cullman, Alabama, United States. He is the son of Kay Tatum Faust, an airline worker, and Glenn Tatum, a construction worker. He has a sister named Paige Tatum. He is of mostly English ancestry. His family moved to the Pascagoula, Mississippi area when he was six. He grew up in the bayous near the Pascagoula River, where he lived in a rural setting.
Tatum has discussed having dealt with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and dyslexia while growing up, which affected his ability to do well in school. Growing up, Tatum played football, soccer, track, and baseball; he has said that “girls were always his biggest distraction in school.” As a child, he practiced wuzuquan kung fu.
He spent most of his teenage years in the Tampa area and initially attended Gaither High School. His parents wanted more effort and gave him the option of selecting a private high school or attending a military school; he chose Tampa Catholic High School, where he graduated in 1998 and was voted most athletic. He later attended Glenville State College in Glenville, West Virginia on a football scholarship, but dropped out. He returned home and started working odd jobs.
Us Weekly reported that around this time Tatum left his job as a roofer and began working as a stripper at a local nightclub, under the name “Chan Crawford”. In 2010, he told an Australian newspaper that he wanted to make a movie about his experiences as a stripper. That idea led to the movie Magic Mike. Tatum moved to Miami, where he was discovered by a model talent scout.
Channing Tatum was the first cast in 2000 as a dancer in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video, after an audition in Orlando, Florida; he was paid $400 for the job.

In 2006, Tatum starred in She’s The Man opposite Amanda Bynes, which was named “the greatest Shakespeare adaptation since ’10 Things I Hate About You’” by Business Insider.

In an interview with Details magazine, published in early 2012, Tatum said he wants to produce all the films he stars in, “I really don’t want to be in any more movies that I don’t produce. Unless it’s with one of the 10 directors that I really want to work with, I don’t have any interest in not being on the ground floor of creating it.” He, his wife Dewan, and their production partner Reid Carolin signed a two-year production deal in 2010 with Relativity Media for any movies they may develop during that time.
