When asked if his preschooler has seen any of his movies, Tatum replied, “Well, she was there for Magic Mike—a lot of it. And now her dancing is showing that she’s seen a lot of that. I’m like, ‘I didn’t teach her that!'”
He added: “But we actually showed her Step Up for the first time. We were like, ‘This is really cool! It’s got dancing. She’s going to love it!’ Within 10 seconds, she was like, ‘Can I watch a real movie? I don’t know, like a good one?’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean? This is a real movie! This is such a real movie! They made like seven more of these! You will watch it! Sit down!'”
As it turns out, she couldn’t sit through the film.
“Ten more seconds went by and she was like, ‘Please, can I watch a real movie?'” he said. “We’re like, ‘Fine! Just put on Moana! I don’t care!'”
“Maybe do a movie with Moana next time!” suggested Kimmel.
“I would happily do that,” the 21 Jump Street star, 37, replied. “That would be a really good career move, I think…My daughter hates when I do voices,” he revealed. “What I want to do is do a movie, and then not tell her that I’m in it, and then make her go see it. And if she likes it, I am going to rub it in her face. I’m going to be like, ‘Yeah! That’s Daddy!’ Mic drop!”
And the proud papa rocked a tie that his daughter designed.
“This is a new artist that’s in town. Her name is E.T. It’s just my daughter,” he laughed. “She pretty much paints all my stuff. She did this one at school.”
He added: “I’m going to start selling these, actually. One day I’ll wear the shoes—we have Converse as well. I have like four or five pairs.”
