Channing Tatum to Take Acting Break in 2013

Channing TatumFirst Angelina - now Channing Tatum is looking to take a break from acting! Well, only for a year anyway.

The Magic Mike actor has revealed that he will be stepping away from the camera in order to get behind it. Tatum - who has starred in five films in 2012 alone with four more on the way - talked about his hopes to collaborate with his production partner Reid Carolin in the upcoming year:

"[Reid and I] have about three to four ideas that we love that are all in the hopper. By the end of next year, we're going to shut things down and write the first thing that we're going to direct. We're going to be like, alright, no more acting parts for a minute, let's take a few and really get caring about that section of our career."

The actor - who was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year - definitely isn't disappearing from the acting world, as he's due to star in a sequel to Magic Mike and a biopic on daredevil Evel Knievel.
