Tatum, who became popular courtesy his starring role in "Mike" movies, says he is not fit enough for the "Mike Live" stage show.

The 38-year-old portrayed the titular character Mike Lane in the 2012 comedy-drama movie, which follows the life of a male stripper and his life at the club, and reprised the role again for the 2015 sequel "Mike XXL".

The films were loosely based on the Hollywood star's own experiences of working as a stripper in Tampa, and he created and co-directed "Live", a striptease experience featuring dance routines and acrobatic stunts.

''I love dancing and I love these guys and performing. But when you stand up there with your shirt off next to them with the way they look... I don't work out on an everyday basis. I know everyone thinks I do but I do not. If I ever get in that shape again I will absolutely be in the show for a weekend or something," told

After having a great run at the in Las Vegas, the show has now reached at the where it will run until October 2019.
