Channing Tatum's 'enormous soft ab'

Channing Tatum has "one enormous soft ab".

The 'Magic Mike XXL' star has insisted he hasn't worked out since filming wrapped on the stripper movie and his love of indulging when it comes to food has left him with a less-than sculpted body.

He said: "I have one enormous ab right now and it's not even hard. I love food and I love indulging. My wife craves healthy food. I'm the complete opposite.

"I grew up down South, eating Cheetos and Ho Hos. Do you get Ho Hos in England? Little cake things. Processed, sugary, salted food. That's what I grew up on. And I was a skinny kid.

"Then you hit a certain age, you start drinking beer and now it's really easy to put it on. And you can't fake it in 'Magic Mike'. Usually on screen, if you're butt-naked, [all you're doing is] walking from the bed to the shower, so you can hold it all in."

The 35-year-old actor has insisted he knows he will eventually have to get back in the gym as he thinks he's "not a good enough actor" to avoid having to take his shirt off in a movie.

He added to Time Out magazine: "I haven't worked out one time since 'Magic Mike'. I know I'm going to have to do it again eventually.

"I'm not a good enough actor not to take my shirt off in a movie. So I'm just going to wait until that freight train comes."
