Channing Tatum is saying goodbye to his 17.4 million followers … for now.
The 39-year-old actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to share that he’s taking a social media break in the hopes of getting his creative juices flowing.
“I’m gonna take a break and come off socials for a minute,” he wrote to his more than 17 million followers. “I’ve been trying to get inspired and create again. And to be honest I don’t really feel, or at least i haven’t felt very creative on social in the last couple years now.”
He added, “I’m gonna go and be just in the real world for a while and off my phone.”
Tatum did say he would probably be back on social at some point, “But if I do [return to social media] I want to have a direction or a clear point of view of why I’m on here and what I’m putting out there,” he wrote. “Love ya! see ya after a while! Chan” the movie star said.
