I just found this short Channing Tatum interview done last year for the release of 'Step Up'. I liked it, because we get to learn whether Channing thinks he's a lover or a fighter, and we learn one fact that he thinks would shock his fans. Enjoy!
'Step Up' Star Finds Footing
Q: With Step Up's success, you're a movie star. How's it going today?
A: I feel like I'm about to wake up from this dream. Like it's some big practical joke. It's so surreal right now.
Q: Dancing, as we know, isn't for wimps. Was it tough for you to learn?
A: I did fall on my head once, but no one got hurt. Jenna bruised her rib doing one lift. We were practicing it, and I bruised her rib a little bit. You're always sore and have bruised knees.
Q: And Jenna is your girlfriend in real life, right?
A: I don't know what you're talking about. Nice try. She's an amazing girl.
Q: You're playing a soldier, alongside Ryan Phillippe (Crash, Gosford Park), in the movie you're shooting now. How's that going for you?
A: I'm having the time of my life. I'm getting to play war. It's a crash course on amazing material. Ryan's a genius. This kid is teaching me so much — how to prepare for a film, just getting to watch him. He's just classy and thinks everything out really well. He's a polite kid.
A: I'm definitely a lover, but I don't mind scrapping at all. I consider myself a lover. You gotta have a little bit of both, so I try to find a middle ground.
Q: What would your fans be shocked to learn about you?
A: I like to bowl. I can handle myself on the lane!
