With the Magic Mike sequel coming this summer, how does Channing Tatum know when he’s hitting the (and sexiest) note?
His wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum!
“God, it’s like the best time ever,” Jenna gushed to ET’s Kevin Frazier on the Golden Globes red carpet of the couple’s Magic Mike rehearsals at home. “I get to watch all the choreography, listen to the music and he lets me put my input in.”
Channing, who co-wrote and produced Magic Mike XXL, relished in having direct access to his target audience. The film centers on “Magic Mike” (Tatum) and his group of strippers on a road trip to Myrtle Beach for a convention.
“I have a built-in audience right at home, you know – a focus group right at the house,” the Foxcatcher star told ET.
The couple, who have been married since 2009, also made the process of making Magic Mike XXL a family affair.
“She came to rehearsals, which is really fun,” Jenna said of their 1-year-old daughter. “We were like, ‘Daddy’s doing gymnastics!’”
Channing couldn’t help but quip, saying with a wink: “Yeah, it’s just a little gymnastics session, babe, don’t worry…”
And here’s why Channing is the perfect gentleman: After their interview on the ET platform, the 34-year-old star helped his wife with her long train when she was struggling with her gown. “Next time, he’s
like, ‘No more trains babe! I’m like, ‘Sorry, sorry!’” Jenna exclaimed. Awww!
