There's Video Of 18-Year-Old Channing Tatum Working As A Stripper

It's pretty crazy to think Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. The guy is a major movie star and may very well be nominated for an Oscar this year for his role in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher."

But, everyone has to start somewhere. Tatum started out as an 18-year-old exotic dancer in Male Encounter, a Tampa Bay strip joint, and video evidence from his stripping days has come to light.

Now, I felt kind of weird watching this video. Spoiler alert: The guy is straight up rocking a banana hammock in this one. But, I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who will go bonkers for his type of thing.

Indulge in the pleasures of the flesh up top, you godless heathens.
