The 'Foxcatcher' actor, 34, however, feels his biggest struggle was drinking and not drugs, according to a leading Hollywood news website.

"I wouldn't say I was losing myself in drugs because I wasn't doing anything habitually. Just experimenting. Experimenting, I would say. Never the big ones. Crack or heroin. I never OD'd or anything. Never," he said in an interview while recalling his past as a stripper in Florida.

When asked about cocaine use, Tatum said, "Maybe a couple times, but that was later. Drinking was probably the biggest (thing). I didn't look at drinking as a problem. It wasn't at that point, and I still don't think it's a problem. But at that time in my life, it was, 'Let's go out and have a great time'," he said.

Tatum, who has been married for five years to actress Jenna Dewan Tatum, 33, and with whom he has a child, Everly, 17 months, rubbished stories of an impending divorce.

"These people just (make it up). Some of our family members don't see (it's not true), and they read a stupid thing and don't understand it's a tabloid," he said.
