Tatum opened up to ET at the Hearst NewFronts on Wednesday about the scintillating new stage show coming to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino next March, and dished on how Magic Mike Live is more than just a male revue -- it's an effort to combat sexism.
"For so many years now, I think male revues have told women what they should think is sexy, and when you really look at it, it's kind of misogynistic a little bit," the 36-year-old star shared. "Like [male dances are] all dominant doctors and lawyers and fireman and construction workers and all women's archetypes are like nurses and maids and subservient things, and we just want to turn all that up on its ear and talk about it and just start a conversation between women and men."
Tatum also revealed that he plans to be very hands on when it comes to building Magic Mike Live into a major entertainment powerhouse. "Casting, directing, we're gonna do it all," the actor explained.
As for performing in the show itself, Tatum hasn't ruled it out. "If I'm ever in shape enough to do it again, I absolutely want to do that. Actually, it would be really fun."
