The Lucky Logan star stopped to talk with ET’s Nischelle Turner at the premiere of his new film in Knoxville, Tennessee, on Thursday, and opened up about how his little girl is thoroughly unimpressed with his coolness.
“I’ve never worked so hard to like, make a girl like me and fail,” Tatum joked. “I was like, ‘Please, please, just please love me, please just love me!'”
While she might not be wowed by his star power, the 37-year-old star said there are a few things he can do to earn some love from his daughter, whom he and wife Jenna Dewan Tatum welcomed in May 2013.
“She likes it when I fall down and hurt myself! She’s like, ‘Haha, do it again!'” Tatum shared. “She’s my harshest critic, man, but it’s the best. It’s a really good humbling experience, I can promise you.”
Tatum also gushed about his wife, who has been so busy in recent months, she hasn’t had a chance to watch his latest heist comedy.
“She actually hasn’t seen this movie yet,” he explained. “She’s got a little bit on her plate right now. We can’t be mad at her for not seeing everything that I do.”
As the host of the popular new dance competition series World of Dance — which aired its season finale on Tuesday — her recurring role on Supergirl and her various modeling campaigns, the 36-year-old star is getting more and more attention by the day, ¬and her husband says fans haven’t seen her depth as a performer.
“People haven’t seen what she can really do because she’s so beautiful and sort of small and elegant but there’s a beast inside there and no one knows,” Tatum explained. “Sooner or later, people are gonna get to see it.”
With both of their acting careers are going strong, Tatum says they are busier than ever but they’re finally getting to work on projects they truly care about.
“We got a lot of irons in the fire but we’ve been really lucky and privileged in the fact that we only do things now that we really love,” he shared. “Because we do want family time, we time to be with each other and be with our daughter. It’s tricky, you gotta be good at managing the time table, but it’s fun. We enjoy what we do.”
Lucky Logan — in which Tatum co-stars alongside Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Riley Keough, Seth McFarlane, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Hilary Swank and Dwight Yoakam — hits theaters Aug. 18. Check out the video below for a look at the action comedy.
