Los Angeles - Channing Tatum's wife approves his Magic Mike stripper moves.

The 34-year-old hunk - who reprises his role as Mike Lane in forthcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL - shows all his routines to Jenna Dewan-Tatum and she tells him if they are OK to be shown on screen.

He admitted: "Our two choreographers on the movie, they're really, really good friends with Jenna. So I work it out with them and then I go show Jenna for approval."

Channing insists his spouse - with who he has 16-month-old daughter Everly - doesn't mind about the raunchy subject matter of the movies because they are so close to his heart.

The actor, who penned the films based on his own experiences as a stripper, told People magazine: "She actually loves Magic Mike, believe it or not. It's an interesting thing that actors have to deal with. We're 10 years into it now, so it's kind of an old hat - we've moved past it.

"If I was just doing some movie about strippers, then she'd probably be like, 'Why do you want to do that?'. But it started off as a story that I really love, and it's grown into something that I love even more because it's a weird world that I experienced in my real life.

"It's just a part of me telling some part of my life. And she understands that." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
