Channing Tatum, “A Work In Progress”
“What does that do to a person? He arrives for breakfast in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice wearing khakis, a white T-shirt and turquoise sneakers — the costume of someone who doesn’t feel the need to embellish what nature provided. He is missing a sliver of his left eyebrow, the result of a bad hop on the baseball field, one of the many stigmata of his athletic glory. “I’ve always negotiated the world very physically, from football to tussling at the playground to taking my clothes off,” Tatum says. “My dad’s a physical guy. I think that’s how I wanted to see myself as a kid, how I won approval, and it’s no secret that that’s how I got into this business. But over time I’ve been able to develop other aspects of myself, sort of on-the-job training.” Tatum’s corn-fed look and winking self-awareness have proved a winning combination.”
