Channing Tatum , Ellen DeGeneres

Dear John, what is Channing Tatum doing?

Turns out the hunky star of the nation's top movie wasn't always an actor. But as he reveals to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, the guy always did know how to put on a show.

"I was a stripper," he says on the episode airing Wednesday. "Look, I'm not proud of it, but I'm not ashamed of it."

Good. Judging from Ellen's enthusiastic response, she's not ashamed of putting the star's dance talents on display for her audience.

"I wish I had a dollar. If only I had cash I would have kept you going," joked DeGeneres.

"Don't worry; that one was on the house," said Tatum.

Aww.
