Channing Tatum - Channing Tatum Hopeful About Magic Mike Hype

Subscribe to Channing Tatum alerts

Channing Tatum ''Hopes'' stripper movie 'Magic Mike' lives up to ''the hype''.

The movie - which tells the tale of a man who mentors younger guys in the art of male stripping - stars Channing in a lead role, and although he admits it is ''looking good'' he is nervous about how it will turn out with the audience.

He told ''I've seen 'Magic Mike'. Obviously I'm financing and producing it so I've seen a bunch of cuts. So we're working on it.

''It's looking good. Hopefully, I hope it's living up to the hype. It's got a lot of buzz so I'm just hoping people like it. It's a crazy movie.''

Channing - who stars alongside Alex Pettyfer in the movie - has previously claimed he is not ''the best actor'' but hopes people will start to see him in better roles.

He said: ''You gotta do the 'Dear Johns'. You gotta do 'The Vow'.

''I'm conscious about why I did those parts, those movies. I wanted to learn from Rachel McAdams on 'The Vow'.

''I wanted to learn from Lasse Hallstrom on 'Dear John' - he did 'The Cider House Rules' and 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'. I didn't go to acting school, so my knowledge of story, filmmaking, and character comes from just being on set and doing it.

''I know I'm not the best actor. But I hope my characters are getting better.''
