Rumors circulated that Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello got into their Magic Mike characters and performed a little dance during the actor's wedding with Sofia Vergara last month. Now, Tatum is revealing exactly what went down during the fun-filled night.

"It was insane. Those two, they're like royalty or something!" Tatum told E! News' Will Marfuggi of the newlyweds. "They're regal in their presence. I love them both so much!"

As for the alleged dance?  The 35-year-old actor says it happened, but it definitely wasn't anything planned.

"It was his buddy that was DJ'ing and he basically just put him on the spot and started playing the song as like a taunt," Tatum explained. "We were just dancing and having fun…But it wasn't anything planned or whatever"

He continued, "Joe doesn't shy away from a challenge, and his buddy just kind of called him out. Now you can imagine every single time he goes anywhere they're going to play that song. Anytime I go anywhere they play ‘Pony' or whatever. It's amazing. It's great, but it's definitely something you have to live with now. Everyone just expects you to bust out into the choreography."

Speaking of partying, Tatum said having a baby has really made him realize just how much of an adult he has to be now, which means preventing a hangover whenever possible.

"I think having kids maybe sort of makes you grow up because you have to wake up in the morning whether you like to or not," he explained.  "Every day we have one of those [adult] moments. We had a party at the house two months ago, and it was the most grown up thing I've ever done. Generally the parties at the house ended up with somebody throwing up in the bushes and passing out on the lawn chairs and stuff, but now it's planned and there's seating arrangements."

However, Tatum says he hopes to still have those nights on the occasion. "We gotta balance this out! We need to throw a bash and have people throwing up in the bushes again!"


For now, both Channing and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum are focused on giving Everly a great Christmas…even though she's still not entirely sure what it is yet.

"She's two-and-a-half so she's starting to come around now. She knows what presents are and what getting one is," the actor said. "She's just learning, getting around the concept of [Santa]. We went to one of those places where Santa is like taking pictures with the kids, and I was like, 'You don't have to go up there, but if you would like to go up and take a picture with him you can.' And she was like, 'No! He's old!'" LOL!

In the midst of all the holiday craziness, Tatum is also busy promoting his upcoming film, Hateful Eight, with Quentin Tarantino. Find out what he says about working with the esteemed director by watching the video below!
