According to People:

Well before he and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum announced their split, Channing Tatum had been open about the difficulty of balancing his personal and professional lives.

In 2015, when PEOPLE asked him how he juggles his hectic career with his family life, Tatum admitted, “Not very well,” adding, “I’m lucky to have people that care enough to make sure I’m not screwing things up.”

The Step Up actor explained that he can have trouble knowing when to slow down at work, but said having a daughter, Everly, now 4, helped him put things into perspective.

“Now, having a family and a little girl, it really makes things super clear,” he said, adding that he asks himself, “Is this worth taking time away from them?” before signing on for new roles.

Still, Tatum said the pressures that come along with a high-profile career in Hollywood can make him feel “miserable.” He explained, “None of this is easy, but at the same time it’s everything I would have ever wanted to do. I really like challenge but I would like things to get a little slower; that would be nice. I wish I could slow down slightly. But I have no other option; I can’t not live in the moment.”
