Channing Tatum Wants To Be Like Jennifer Lawrence

By: Amanda Crum - May 31, 2013

Channing Tatum is pretty well-known for showing off his bod in films, so it’s a little surprising that he recently admitted he packs on the pounds between projects.

“I’m a fat kid on the inside,” he said. “I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25-30 pounds between movies. I feel like I have to do a chess movie that requires very little movement at some point, just so I can eat pizza and play chess on the beach all day. And then eat more pizza and cheeseburgers and drink beer. That’d be amazing. I’d give anything for that. I gotta figure that movie out!”

Tatum’s wife, Jenna Dewan, is pregnant with the couple’s first child, so that may have something to do with his eating habits; everyone knows expectant dads eat for two, as well. Funny how he says he’d love to find a way to work eating junk food into preparing for a role, because he also admitted he looks up to a certain actress who doesn’t believe in dieting.

“I wouldn’t mind being the male Jennifer Lawrence. I think she’s incredibly cool,” he said.

Tatum is currently filming “Jupiter Ascending” in London; his most recent project was “White House Down”.
