Channing Tatum recently welcomed daughter Everly, and has said that he is not going to medicate his children unnecessarily because he had a bad experience when he was young.

"I truly believe some people need medication, I did not. I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie. You become obsessive. Dexedrine, Adderall. It's like any other drug. It's like coke, or crystal meth. The more you do, the less it works," he said. 

"For a time, it would work well. Then it worked less and my pain was more. I would go through wild bouts of depression, horrible comedowns. I understand why kids kill themselves. I absolutely do. You feel terrible. You feel soul-less. I'd never do it to my child."

Tatum also expressed his worried about Justin Bieber.

"I worry about Bieber, man. That kid's wildly talented. I hope he doesn't fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it's so hard for someone to be responsible when they're not asked to be," he said.
