Can't Stop the (ADHD) Feeling!

"If you're a young person being called weird or different, I'm here to tell you that your critics do not count. Their words will fade. You will not." Why we love Justin Timberlake and these other celebrities with ADHD.

Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is now a household name, leading blockbusters like 21 Jump Street and The Vow. He’s won hearts across the nation with his classic looks, dance skills, and comedic chops. But it wasn’t always a primrose path. He’s spoken openly before about his difficult past, and now he confides his learning challenges – including ADHD, dyslexia, and medication – in an interview with New York Times’ style magazine. He told T magazine, “You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down syndrome, and you look around and say, ‘OK, so this is where I’m at.’ Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, ‘All right, I’m obviously not like these kids either.’ So you’re kind of nowhere. You’re just different.” He certainly didn’t let different stop him!
