VIDEO: Channing Tatum Was a Male Stripper

Why hello there!

In this newly discovered footage, courtesy of Us Weekly, check out a young Channing Tatum showing off his body in a Chippendales-style dance troupe called Male Encounter back in 1999.

The Florida club owner London Steele dished, “He was shy at first, but he really knew how to work the stage. The women went crazy for him!”

The G.I. Joe star performed under the alias “Chan Crawford” and earned a hefty $50 a night (plus tips).

This is the place where Tatum was in fact discovered, when he caught the eye of a female casting agent who put him in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video.

It’s funny how 10 years changes a person.
