Jenna Dewan Tatum has revealed how husband Channing Tatum initially won her over, and it involved very few clothes.

During an appearance on theEllen DeGeneres Show, Jenna recalled: "I said, 'Well, look, if you want to date other people and be free that's totally fine. But we're not gonna hang out and watch movies. You have to figure out what you want because I want a relationship.'"

The pair were filming 2006's Step Up at the time, and three days after her ultimatum, Jenna disclosed that he turned up at her hotel room.

"He said he had the chance to be free and he couldn't stop thinking about me," she went on. "He's in a sombrero, underwear, and Ugg boots and said, 'Let's do this.'"

Despite their best efforts, the new couple were unable to keep their relationship a secret for long...

"It's even worse because the next morning he was in my room, and I go to set because I had an earlier call time," the 36-year-old actress and dancer cringed as she recounted what happened next. "I'm getting hair and makeup done and an hour goes by and the production assistants go, 'We can't find Channing. We don't know where he is. He's not in his room. We've banged on his door and called his room.' And I called a PA over and said, 'He's in my room.'"

She explained that the Magic Mike star then received a round of applause from his costars and the crew when he turned up on set. Childish, but it's got to be done.

Channing and Jenna married three years later, and welcomed their first child together daughter Evelyn in 2013.
