Channing Tatum is without a doubt a very talented actor. However, the star recently revealed that he never considered himself to be a smart person. Moreover, the star said that he struggled with ADHD and dyslexia, while being in school.
“I have never considered myself a very smart person, for a lot of reasons,” the famous actor claimed during a recent interview with The New York Times Style Magazine. Naturally, this made everything more difficult for the talented actor.
“Not having early success on that one path messes with you,” the star claimed. “You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down syndrome, and you look around and say, ‘Okay, so this is where I’m at.’ Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, ‘All right, I’m obviously not like these kids either.’ So you’re kind of nowhere. You’re just different,” Channing Tatum added.
Naturally, the popular actor was able to overcome this difficult time, developing a very successful acting career. The star currently is one of the best paid actors in Hollywood.
Moreover, the popular actor claimed that the system should be blamed for not helping kids who “struggle the way I did.” Channing Tatum revealed that when he first moved to New York, he worked as a model and learned everything he could from each person he met. The star said that if there is one thing he always knew that is how to choose a good mentor.
Channing Tatum also revealed that he is very passionate about sculpting. The popular actor claimed that with “sculpting, nothing is cloudy or mystical. It’s just about this object, and if you’re trying to depict reality, and you do it well, then the outcome is the truth.”
Channing Tatum currently is married to actress Jenna Dewan. The couple met on the set of Step Up, in 2006. They married in 2009 and currently have a daughter together. The baby girl was born in 2013. During an interview with GQ magazine, dating back to May 2014, Tatum claimed that he drinks too much.
