Channing Tatum is revealing what it's like on the set of Magic Mike XXL!

In a new interview with Esquire magazine, the 34-year-old actor says it can get a little awkward on set while he and the rest of his hunky co-stars are rehearsing their nearly naked stripper dance scenes together.

"There are a lot of apologies," Tatum joked. "A lot of ‘I'm sorry that ran into your chin' and ‘Let me take my thigh off your neck.'"

TMI alert (LOL)!

As for how he originally learned to dance growing up in Tampa, Tatum explained, "I wanted to dance. I just didn't know anything. Neither did the girls I was seeing. But their moms did. I figured out the fastest way for me to learn to dance was to grab up some abuela [grandmother] and get her moving on the porch."

Tatum also opened up about playing real-life Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz in the new drama Foxcatcher. Tatum actually trained with Schultz to prep for the intense role.

"I'll tell you the truth," Tatum told Esquire. "He's even intense when he eats eggs. He's still scary to get on the mats with. My third or fourth time wrestling, there I am with this technician of the sport, an all-time great, a really violent wrestler who can bend me in half pretty easily. He did, too. Crushed me."
