Channing Tatum made a big splash in New York City Tuesday night, where his fans came out in full force to support his latest film, the highly anticipated action blockbuster White House Down.
At the star-studded premiere, Tatum talked about everything from his Channing All Over Your Tatum music video that quickly went viral, his natural chemistry with co-star Jamie Foxx and his surprising desire to change more dirty diapers!
"It's weird, I don't even register it as my name anymore. It isn't even a thing for me now," Tatum explains about the play-on of his unique name in the Jimmy Kimmel Live cameo-filled spoof. "I've never even been called Channing, I've just been called Chan by my close friends so it's weird that it's like a thing now."
And will there be a follow-up to the hilarious hit?
"I think there's gonna be a lot of follow-ups," Tatum smiles. "Jamie and I are gonna do a lot of things together. There might be a go Jamie Foxx type song -- there's a lot of things we can [do] with this direction. Jamie and I are gonna work together for a long time."
As for life as a new dad to his first daughter Everly with wife Jenna Dewan, Tatum is clearly loving it -- right down to changing diapers.
"Not enough," Tatum surprisingly replies when asked about how many diapers he's already changed. "I'm gonna tell you, I've never been so excited to ... for anyone's who's had a baby, you'll know what I'm talking about. Like, the guy is so removed from the first few weeks, you know, even months. I'm just excited to be in the game. Like, the baby poos and I'm just like, 'Give it to me. Give it to me. Give it to me. I got it. I got it. Let me do it. Let me do it.' So I don't know, I just want to be a part of it."
Check out the video to hear why Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal think Tatum has become such a huge star, and why the 33-year-old "Sexiest Man Alive" reminds James Woods of the legendary Steve McQueen.
