Jenna Dewan Reflects on Her Marriage to Channing Tatum ‘I Was Always Very Happy Being a Wife’
Jenna Dewan is ready for a Hollywood comeback. And it has nothing to do with the star’s April split from her husband Channing Tatum, whom she was married to for nearly nine years.
“The moves I’m making are completely not related to my marriage or separation, interestingly enough. I was always very happy being a wife,” the 37-year-old told July’s Harper’s Bazaar. While reflecting on her life, Dewan, began to ask herself questions. “‘Who are you? What do you want to give the world?’ Those feelings started bubbling up for me, naturally so I really wanted to expand my life, and myself,” she explained.
Dewan, who hosts NBC’s World of Dance, revealed she feels “a sense of joy and freedom and excitement” about the “new chapter” in her life. Dewan has been in the business for a long time, dancing for artists including Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake. But her big acting break came in 2006 when she starred alongside Tatum in Step Up.
