"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... 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," Tatum told Time Out magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 35-year-old actor says 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: "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."
