Second, she's married to Step Up costar Channing Tatum. (Their "Lip Sync Battle" was one of our all-time favorites, and they have a too-cute daughter together named Everly.)
And now, the 35-year-old actress can add model and brand rep to her list of credentials: She's the new face of Danskin!

"My mom reminded me, when I was four years old, starting a community dance class on the weekends and I had to wear a black leotard and pink tights," Dewan Tatum told PeopleStyle on the set of her ad campaign shoot. "She got me a Danskin black little cap sleeve leotard and pink tights—that’s kind of why I jumped at this offer. I love Danskin—I’ve been wearing it for literally 30 years."
Also adorable? Dewan Tatum says 3-year-old Everly is a budding ballerina herself. (Not surprising, considering her parents met on the set of one of the best dance movies ever.) "She has a leotard. The first thing she said to me today when she saw me on set, 'Mommy, you're wearing a leotard like me.' We have a plethora of tutus. Name the color and the sparkle and we have," Dewan Tatum told PeopleStyle. "We started her in dance class and it was too structured for her. She really likes to be free and do her own thing—she's her own little spirit. She likes a good dance, [but] the pressure is on or the attention is on, she's like 'No.' To look at her in a leotard and tutu makes my heart melt, but I'm really conscious not to push it on her."

When I sit with the soles of my feet together, my knees easily touch the floor, and most exercises to improve turnout are easy for me. But when I'm actually dancing, my turnout is terrible, especially on my standing leg. Why doesn't my flexibility translate to turnout?
The dark, deeply personal video is Yang's coming-out moment. We see Yang being rejected by his family, condemned by a preacher, and attacked by a hostile mob after attempting to express himself as a gay man. Though not a professional dancer (as we found out in "The Try Guys Try Ballet"), Yang is a gifted mover; he choreographed the project himself, and gathered a group of talented performers to bring the story to life.
