Actor Channing Tatum says he does not miss his former life as a stripper and insists there was nothing glamorous about it.

The 36-year-old actor, who drew inspiration from his past life as an exotic dancer for his role in the Magic Mike movies and the newly launched Magic Mike Live at Hard Rock Las Vegas, says he has no desire to return to the stage, reported People magazine.

“I don’t miss anything about stripping. I stripped in Tampa for like 25 girls, at best. It wasn’t glamorous whatsoever, so there’s nothing that I miss about stripping. This isn’t stripping. This is a show,” Tatum says.

The actor also revealed why he decided to create a live show based on the movies in Vegas.

“People in general are coming because they know the movies and they think they’re going to get something like they saw in the last film, and they’re going to get all that.

“But I think they’re going to get something else. We don’t do live shows. We don’t do that. With this, we didn’t have any rules so we just started creating crazy s*** and no one told us that wasn’t allowed.”
