Channing Tatum

Mr. Channing Tatum, the cutie actor from films like Step Up and Dear John shook his body down to the ground in a G-string from time to time. Like many of the other people on this list, Tatum said in an interview with GQ, he has no regrets about his dancing days, but he knows it’s not something he plans on doing again: “I had wanted to tell people. I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t regret one thing. I’m not a person who hides s**t.” Oh yeah, by the way, the actor’s stage name was “Chan Crawford,” and his past inspired a movie he’ll be in called, Magic Mike directed by Steven Soderbergh. Say whaaaat??? Now THAT’S turning a stripper past into success for real!
