Channing Tatum

Current age: 33

Career at 20: Before the days of his explosive film career, Channing Tatum, as he proudly admits, was a stripper in Miami, which incidentally was the inspiration for Magic Mike.

Relationship status at 20: While not much is known about Channing Tatum's earlier romance, he began dating Jenna Dewan in 2005. The two are currently married and had baby Everly Tatum just last year.

Quoted at 20: In an interview with a Miami-based blog, Channing reflected on his time as a stripper. "I only stripped for like about eight months. It was a very brief time. It was crazy, and I sorta got in, got out. It was really fun and just like a firecracker; it just went off, and I was like, 'Alright, that was cool, did that. Let's do something else now!' But I would never trade it for the world. I'm not ashamed of it. I wouldn't say I'm exactly proud of it, but I wouldn't suggest it for anybody. It's kind of a rabbit hole."
