Channing Tatum Stripper Video & Pics

Take it Off!

GI Joe star Channing Tatum has evidently used his assets to get him where he is today. We all knew that he was a former model, but thanks to a video that has surfaced, we now know that he was a stripper.

US Weekly has unearthed a video from 1999 in which Channing is seen dancing in a Chippendales-style revue called Male Encounter.

Then 18, the star — who performed under the alias “Chan Crawford” — approached the troupe’s owner London Steele at a now-defunct Florida nightclub about a job.

“He was shy at first, but he really knew how to work the stage,” Steele tells Us, adding that Tatum lip-synched in the act and earned $50 a night (plus tips) during his year-long stint.
