Long before he became the most ubiquitous actor of 2012, Channing Tatum drove audiences wild as Amanda Bynes' pined-after love interest in 2006's She's the Man.
Playing a striker on the boys' soccer team -- and an incognito Bynes' oft-shirtless roommate -- Tatum frequently revealed his six-pack abs and chiseled chest. It was nothing new for Tatum, a former exotic dancer who went by the stage name Chan Crawford.
"I'm not ashamed of it. I don't regret one thing," Tatum later told GQ of his stripper past. "I'm not a person who hides s--t."
Tatum -- who turned 32 Thursday -- continued to take his shirt off in movies like 2009's Fighting, 2010's Dear John, 2011's The Dilemma and 2012's The Vow. Though he'll revisit his stripper past in this summer's Magic Mike, don't expect Tatum to strip down on camera much longer.
"There's this YouTube thing called 'Channing Tatum Got Fat' that has the whole spectrum of me, from model-skinny to my actor weight," the married actor told Details in 2010. "I'm gonna give it five more years and then say, 'Get me some fat roles, boys!'"
