If you know Channing Tatum for any time at all, then you know that family, friends, and fans are extremely important to him.
So when Channing revealed to CTU years ago that mom Kay was helping him with his fan mail, it didn’t surprise to me one bit. Who better to take care of your fans than the person that’s taken such amazing care of you your entire life?
As you may imagine, Chan gets a ton of fan mail every week, and it’s momma Kay who sorts through letters from all over the world, organizes everything, and spends her precious few moments with her son to make sure that fan autograph requests are filled and shipped back out to destinations far and wide.
“I do get quite a bit of fan mail and most of it is just nice normal stuff. But I have had underwear sent to me and one pair had my face on, which was rather weird. My mom sorts through some of it for me and it’s the best job for a mom to do – they love it!”
Although Chan writes short notes and personally signs all of the autograph requests from fans, you won’t really catch him hand writing ‘Dear John‘-style letters like his alter-ego John Tyree. Chan tells OK magazine…
“In the film they wouldn’t let me use my own handwriting for the letters as it looks like a three year old has written or a chicken! I spell everything wrong so writing letters is not my strong point.”
So when you’re trying to figure out what fan mail to send Chan, just remember that momma Kay is probably going to see it first. Maybe you can send her a little thank you note, and if you must send underwear, just make sure it’s respectable. Just sayin’.
