You’d be forgiven for thinking Channing Tatum, of all people, would know how to turn on the charm -- after all, we’ve all seen Magic Mike.
But it looks as if his real-life antics are, well, a whole lot less tactful.
In an interview on BBC Radio One's The Breakfast Show With Nick Grimshaw, the 37-year-old revealed that he played a mean trick on his now-wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, before proposing.
And, oh boy, it’s a doozy!
"When I proposed to my wife, I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me," he said. "I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off."
Side note: are you getting major Chandler and Monica vibes too?
"I told her, 'I don't believe in the institution of marriage, and I don't think I ever want to get married,'" he continued. "She basically broke down crying. I thought, 'This is not going well at all,' so I had to propose to her sooner rather than later."
Of course, like any true rom-com, we know how that story ends -- happily ever after. The couple married in 2009 in Malibu, California, and welcomed their daughter, Everly, in 2013.
The actor, who stars in the new film Logan Lucky, recently penned an open letter to his little daughter.
The letter, published in Cosmopolitan, revealed that he’s kept awake at night thinking about the kind of woman his little one will become.
“My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be,” he penned.
He also reflected on his fairytale marriage, explaining that he hopes his little girl will find a love like he and his 36-year-old wife have.
“That’s what I want for my daughter — to be expectation-less with her love and not allow preconceived standards to affect her, to ask herself what she wants and feel empowered enough to act on it.”
He finished off his tribute by sharing a powerful statement to his daughter about breaking gender stereotypes.
“We live in a society that has trained men and women to play certain kinds of roles for a long time," he wrote. "I guess if there’s one thing that I think men wish women knew, it’s just that they alone are enough.”
