ohmyGAHH!! Channing Tatum is officially a
The White House Down star and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed their first child, daughter Everly, at London’s Portland Hospital on May 30.
And while taking a break out of his busy schedule, the 33-year-old actor sat down with Vanity Fair magazine for a one-on-one interview. Check out the highlights below!
On becoming a father
“I don’t think you can prepare. It’s a bit of a freestyle… I’m just going to be a good friend to my kid. One thing I definitely want to change is that whole ‘I don’t want you to make the same mistakes’ mentality. My dad didn’t have much money growing up; he didn’t have much of an education. He forced that on me, and I didn’t want it.”
On young celebrities
“I worry about [Justin] Bieber, man. That kid’s wildly talented. I hope he doesn’t fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it’s so hard for someone to be responsible when they’re not asked to be. We’re not asked to do things ourselves. You have someone there with a coffee. ‘You want food? I’ll get you food.’ I put my bag in the trunk yesterday—I can’t drive here—so my driver, great guy, Terry, amazing, I call him T-Bone, I drop my bag in and left the trunk open. And I get around to my door, and I’m like, ‘What the f*ck am I doing? That’s not my behavior.’ ”
On becoming famous
“I don’t remember who said it, but I do believe that whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age. Because from that point you’re not asked to be a normal citizen. I broke through at 24 or 25. I had lived a pretty diverse life. When I was finally making money, I knew exactly what I needed … $5.67. I’d have one meal a day. I would go to Checkers and get the No. 1 with everything.”
