Though Channing Tatum doesn't seem it, he actually struggles with his weight. Tatum recently said he is "fat on the inside" and in between films puts on the pounds.

"I'm a fat kid on the inside. I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25 to 30 pounds between movies," he said. "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."

He also said that he often tries to forget about his celebrity status and doesn't like to feel famous.

"It's a hard thing for me to wrap my mind around the C word: celebrity. Rock stars are celebrities, because they're larger than life. As an actor, you have to play the everyman and the everygirl. If you start treating people in the real world like assistants, that's not a good look," he said.

"But my friends keep me grounded. It's embarrassing to tell you how much my friends make fun of me. Seriously, when you have a doll made of your face, it's ridiculous how creative your friends can get…pictures, videos, little animated cartoons that they've made. And they're way, way not PG-13. So I get chopped down to size all the time."

Tatum then opened up about his marriage to Jenna Dewan and how they keep it going.

"You have to want it. Jenna's and my thing is checking in with each other all the time, like 'On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you love me right now?' And you gotta be honest, and you've got to want an honest answer."

"I told a friend to do that. He asked the question and it turned into a huge fight, and I'm like, that's kind of the point. Obviously, something needed to be fixed, he needed to be aware of it, and she needed to get it off her chest."
