Huzzah! This is what makes my morning without coffee tolerable. Channing Tatum has a naughty past a male stripper. HOT!
The “G.I. Joe” star was 18 when he danced with a Chippendales male revue called Male Encounter. It sounds a bit like a sideshow at the zoo and I am picturing men in cages being poked at by women trying to feed them beer nuts.
Anyway, Tatum went by the alias “Chan Crawford” and danced around in skimpy under wear while flexing his muscles for thongs of screaming women. The former owner of the revue said he was a bit apprehensive, but warmed up quickly.

“He was a bit shy at first, but her really knew how to work the stage. The women went crazy for him!”
This eventually led to him being “talent spotted” and put in Ricky Martin’s video for “She Bangs.” Of course there was a no nudity policy so he never aired out his tatum in public. He made at least $50 a night on his venture plus whatever tips he earned.
Don’t you just love a good stripper turned movie star story? It’s a bit like “Pretty Woman,” only with banana hammocks.
