Channing Tatum ‘f**king’ hates G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra


Even though Channing Tatum was the star in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra from director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy), that didn’t stop him from talking crap about the movie. He revealed his feelings about the film when he was a guest on the Howard Stern show. During the interview, Stern was saying how one of Tatum’s big moment was being in the movie. Tatum’s reaction to Stern’s comment had the host and his sidekick, Robin, question why he reacted that way.

“Look, I’ll be honest. I f**king hate that movie. I hate that movie. I was pushed into doing that movie. From Coach Carter, they signed me to a three-picture deal […] They give you the contract and they go, ‘Three-picture deal, here you go.’ And as a young [actor], you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that!’”

There are many G.I. Joe fans who aren’t fans of the movie, and it’s not hard to see why. Tatum’s reason for hating it is that, “the script wasn’t any good.” He grew up watching the cartoon show and he wanted to play Snake Eyes. “I didn’t want to do something that I thought was 1.) bad, and 2.) I just didn’t know if I wanted to be G.I. Joe.”

He later toned things down a bit by saying that he’s “super lucky and blessed to have been given that film. That was really not all that bad. [But you have] no option. ‘You’re doing this or we’re gonna sue you.’”

Well, at least the actor is moving on to do better things; for example, getting a chance to play the fan-favorite X-Men character, Gambit.
