Channing Tatum thinks he has been working too hard and needs a break if he is to continue turning in good performances
Channing Tatum is ready for a career break.
The 35-year-old actor thinks he has been working too hard and worries he can't give his best performance if he is constantly going from one movie to the next.
He said: "I've been working a lot in the last few years so it might be time to slow things down a little.
"I love my job but I liken it to a treadmill that you're always on and you don't get to enjoy.
"There was one point where I did four movies back-to-back and you start to question if you gave your all to each of the,
"I don't want to get to that place again. I want to spread it around a little. Just step off the treadmill and breathe, which is something I'm looking towards."
When he is choosing roles, Channing - who has two-year-old daughter Everly with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum - looks for projects that "excite" him.
He said: "There's no one direction you can go in this industry.
"You can work towards certain goals and projects, but after that it's up to fate.
"It's down to what excites you because that's what life is all about, and about my family - how it affects them."
