Sure, there are a few secrets we’d rather not share with our parents (mainly from our teen years...sorry, Mom and Dad), but Channing Tatum’s secret takes the cake. 

To Ellen DeGeneres’s utter surprise, the Magic Mike actor revealed Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (where he was guest hosting) that his dad found out about one of his more, er, exotic jobs while Tatum was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2010. Yep, Tatum, who was a stripper for about eight months after dropping out of college, said his dad had no idea about his previous employment until he saw his son give DeGeneres a lap dance on her show, and apparently the elder Tatum was not too happy about finding out...via national television. 

DeGeneres, who was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, couldn’t believe she gave away the secret. (Fast-forward to minute 2:45 in the video above to watch Tatum’s lap dance. You’re welcome.)

As for us, we’ll just be over here jamming to Ginuwine. (Fine, we’ll turn it down if you insist, Mr. Tatum.)
