Pictures of a young Channing Tatum show the sexy actor in his younger, and perhaps more modest days, before he rose to fame as an actor, model and ridiculously good looking celebrity. Ever curious what Channing Tatum looked like when he was young, in high school or before he took it off in Magic Mike? Wonder no longer with this slideshow of photos of a young Channing Tatum.

Channing Tatum has starred in several films, including Coach Carter, Step Up, 21 Jump Street, Dear John, The Vow, White House Down and The Lego Movie. Tatum was born in Cullman, Alabama, and was into sports when he was in high school. He played football, soccer, baseball and enjoyed martial arts. He received a football scholarship at Glenville State College but dropped out of school to become a male stripper under the name Chan Crawford. It was this experience that later lead to his producing and starring in the movie Magic Mike.

After moving to Miami, he was discovered by a talent agency and was cast as a dancer in the Ricky Martin music video "She Bangs." After modeling for the popular clothing lines Abercrombie and Fitch, American Eagle, Emporio Armani, Nautica and Dolce and Gabbana, he began starring in television commercials then landed his first movie role in Step Up.
