Women (and men) of all ages are eagerly awaiting the July 1 release of Magic Mike XXL, and while star Channing Tatum doesn't have to worry about his two-year-old daughter Everly seeing it yet, he knows this role will come back to haunt him in 15 years!
"She's gonna see it; there's no way I could shelter her from it," the 35-year-old, who plays a stripper in the film, admits to People magazine, teasing, "I'm setting aside money for college and for therapy."

But the hunk, who's been married to actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 34, since 2009, isn't hiding from his exotic past. "I can't change the fact that I did this in real life," Channing says about his former dancing days.
"I'm not ashamed of anything I've ever done. I think we teach better through our behavior and by our experiences rather than trying to design some lesson."

As for the current direction of his career, every decision revolves around his family. "Having a little girl, it really makes things superclear," he says, adding that he always asks the same question before committing to a project: "Is this worth taking time away from them?"
