It’s delightful to dig up facts, especially when they are about the gorgeous Channing Tatum, his looks and versatile acting skills have placed him up on a level of his own. The actor, dancer and producer, was born Channing Matthew Tatum on April 26, 1980. Tatum started out as a dancer and a model, but later starred in a few small productions, the movie that broadened his horizons was ‘Step Up’, in 2006.
The actor has come a long way since then, movies like ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘G.I Joe’ have catapulted him to the top and to be honest, everybody loves them some Channing Tatum. In the light of that, let’s dive right in to the main dish.
Channing Tatum’s Height
Channing is highly recognized for his chiseled good looks, athletic build, light brown hair and striking green eyes, if you’ve seen ‘Jupiter Ascending’, you know what we mean by ‘striking’. The actor also possesses the coveted triangular body shape, which is marked by broad shoulders, a wide chest and a small waist.
Even to the untrained eye, the he looks tall and we have got the figures to prove it. He stands tall at 6 feet 1 inch, but there have been more than a couple of speculations that the actor is a few inches shorter than that. Could this be another ‘Schwarzenegger height conspiracy?’
Taking Channing Tatum’s height into consideration, he most likely towers above his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum. She stands, way shorter than her husband at 5 feet 3 inches. Also, Tatum’s height places him in the same bracket as a handful of popular and interesting people, here are a few; Barack Obama (no need to explain who he is), Robert Patterson ( one of the faces of the ‘Twilight’ saga) and Cristiano Ronaldo (world renowned football player).
Channing Tatum’s Weight
Unlike the topic of Tatum’s height, we are pretty sure we can dig up more juicy details on this one. The actor’s ripped body and well built muscles obviously point to the fact that he has a pretty intense work out regimen. Believe it or not, the actor had a ‘fappy’ (fat and happy) phase, just before he was going to film the sequel to his steamy 2012 movie, ‘Magic Mike’.
In relation to this the actor said, ‘I was super fat when I started. It was daddy fat. Actually, it was every kind of fat.’ He added this tid bit of information, ‘I’m still anywhere from 25 to 30 pounds over.’
It took more than a minute to whip him back into shape and it was no walk in the park. The actor weighed about 95 kg while they needed him at 83 kg, and his L.A based trainer, Arin Babaian, took him back to his former glory in the space of 10 weeks. It took a number of grueling outdoor exercises, a strict diet coupled with slight starvation to reach his target weight which the actor maintains till date.
Channing is a self professed ‘high functioning alcoholic’ so he also had to give up the bottle in his plight to get rid of the extra flabs he gained through over indulgence, mostly in food. Well at least he is sure he can bounce back from a few extra pounds anytime.
Channing Tatum’s Body Measurements
His measurements are all out there for fellow body builders and also for those who are just plain curious. Like we mentioned before, the actor has a triangular body shape and we now have the figure to back that claim. His chest size is 42 inches and his waist size is a whole 10 inches less. His biceps must get their fair share of attention during his workout sessions, because they are the same size as a certain Norse god’s biceps.
If your mind went straight to ‘Thor’ (Chris Hemsworth), you guessed correctly. Someone has been lifting those weights the right way. Apart from his obvious affinity with the weights, the actor is a very good sportsman who has been playing football, soccer, track and baseball since he was a little Channing. No doubt, he still dabbles once in a while.
Also if you were waiting to find out Channing Tatum’s shoe size, you know we got you. He wears a U.S size 10, a European size 43 and a UK size 9.5. Updates on Channing Tatum are endless, so be sure to sit tight and wait for it…
