“When I proposed to my wife I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me. I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off,” he told host Nick Grimshaw.
“I told her, ‘I don’t believe in the institution of marriage and I don’t think I ever want to get married.’ She basically broke down crying,” Tatum, 37, continued. “I thought, ‘This is not going well at all’ so I had to propose to her sooner rather than later.”
