“I have never considered myself a very smart person, for a lot of reasons, not having early success on that one path messes with you.”

“You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down syndrome, and you look around and say, Okay, so this is where I’m at,”  “Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, All right, I’m obviously not like these kids either. So you’re kind of nowhere. You’re just different. The system is broken”.

“While Tatum may not consider himself “smart,” he made a rather brilliant decision self-financing his 2012 movie Magic Mike, which is based on his stint as a stripper, with director Steven Soderbergh. The movie, which cost $7 million to make, has earned over $167 million to date, making Tatum a millionaire many, many times over”.
