Idol Chatter

was #2 at the box office this weekend–not bad for a movie highly anticipated by boys who grew up with G.I. Joe action figures but a movie panned by almost all movie critics.

Actor and former model Channing Tatum, who plays “Duke” in the movie, was recently interviewed by Parade magazine about how action film combat differs from real war combat and his recent marriage to “Step Up” co-star Jenna Dewan. Along the way, he also offered a surprising nugget on his spiritual outlook:

“People that are your guardian angels just come from funny places. I remember I got so pissed off one day about something. I don’t remember what it was now, but I had one of my friend’s little boys with me. I had to take him out for the day and I was like ‘God, I hate this, I hate it so much.’ He looks up and says, ‘You shouldn’t hate anything.’ I was like, ‘You’re right! I’m sorry.’ He was so young. He could barely even walk and he was like ‘You shouldn’t hate anything.’ That’s a lesson I hope I don’t forget.”

Even actors need some heavenly guidance once in a while.
