Channing Tatum’s Regime To Shape Up For “Magic Mike 3” Was Brutal

Channing Tatum says he almost didn’t reprise his role in “Magic Mike 3.”

And for a good reason! The 41-year-old actor is known for movies like “Step Up” and “She’s the Man,” but he tells Kelly Clarkson that this prep was much harder. He had to take on an intense fitness regimen to keep up for the final installment of the “Magic Mike” series.

He explained you still have to starve yourself even if you keep up a physical routine. He added it was much easier for him to shed weight for roles when he was younger.

Channing also joked that he’d like to do a “Grumpy Old Men” version when he’s 70!
