“I would go harder”: Channing Tatum Challenged Jennifer Lopez To a Strip-off, Claimed He’d “Take it to JLo’s front door” To Beat Her

When it comes to dancing and stripping in movies, there is no denying that Channing Tatum is the best.

Well, all thanks to his pre-fame teenage years as an exotic dancer, which not only paid off well but also inspired him for the Magic Mike franchise. However, taking some authority on the subject, Tatum voiced his opinions on being the best.

Putting his stripper prowess on display and reflecting upon his initial days as an exotic dancer, Tatum championed himself over his Hollywood competitors.

During the episode, when he was questioned if he was a better stripper than his Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello, the 43-year-old addressed himself to be better, without hesitation.

Joe Manganiello is one of the bodies that like pops up because he’s just, he’s kind of weirdly flawless. But as far as stripping goes, I would put myself, I would put myself above him dance-wise.”

After engraving himself on top of the champion’s list, the conversation with Channing Tatum took a different route as the Magic Mike franchise was compared to Hustlers, another stripper-themed film, featuring Jennifer Lopez.

Although both films earned tremendous commercial success, Tatum was not willing to give up on his self-proclaimed championship.

Despite both Channing Tatum and Jennifer Lopez starting off in Hollywood as background dancers, Tatum stood his ground and claimed his stripping skills were superior to Jennifer Lopez’s.

Further escalating the conversation as to who would win in a strip-off, Tatum refused to deter from his claims of being superior to Lopez.

Am I a better stripper than her? I’m gonna say, yeah. I would go harder if I was stripping against her. I’m just saying, I’m gonna take it to J. Lo’s front door.”
