“I do believe that whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age.”[HuffPo]

Everyone thinks of Channing Tatum as just the prototypical macho jock, right? Well, he might be, but he’s also a protective older brother, as witnessed in his cautionary words of wisdom for pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Tatum tells Vanity Fair in its latest issue that, “I worry about Bieber, man. That kid’s wildly talented. I hope he doesn’t fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it’s so hard for someone to be responsible when they’re not asked to be. We’re not asked to do things ourselves.”

He adds that fame is hard for everyone, but especially the young: “I don’t remember who said it, but I do believe that whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age. Because from that point you’re not asked to be a normal citizen. I broke through at 24 or 25. I had lived a pretty diverse life. When I was finally making money, I knew exactly what I needed … $5.67. I’d have one meal a day. I would go to Checkers and get the No. 1 with everything.”

Betcha he doesn’t eat much Checkers now.

Tatum is surprisingly thoughtful and extremely generous. I don't think Bieber is worth it.
