Ever since he captured our hearts in Step Up, Channing Tatum has been making us swoon. Now at age 37, he’s still making our hearts dance.
Tatum was born on April 26, 1980 in Cullman, Alabama, where he grew up as one of six children. After working as a roofer, Tatum worked at a strip club under a different name, where he was eventually discovered by a talent scout. His experiences provided the basis for the Magic Mike films.
Tatum first rose to stardom in the 2006 dance film Step Up, where he starred alongside his now wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Subsequently, Tatum starred in films like G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, She’s the Man, The Dilemma, White House Down, Dear John, The Vow, and of course, 21 Jump Street.
Now, 37 years later, Tatum and Dewan are a happily married Hollywood power couple with a beautiful daughter.
In honor of Channing Tatum’s birthday today, here’s a look back at all of his hottest moments.
