Although the man also known as Magic Mike is all covered up on the cover of GQ, inside, Channing Tatum is baring it all. Now, before you get too excited, you should know that he is fully clothed for this one. But go ahead and take a moment to get lost in that green-eyed gaze of his.
In his cover story, one of Hollywood’s hottest hunks isn’t afraid to get a little intimate and share some pretty revealing things about himself. Like how Jonah Hill bet him to kiss his penis if their film 21 Jump Street broke $35 million during its open weekend. Yeah…
OK, that’s kind of weird. Keep on reading for excerpts from his interview.
On his drinking habit:
“I probably drink too much, you know. My wife, that’s what she bought into.… I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess. There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”
On his bet with Jonah:
“I haven’t made him do it yet. For obvious reasons. That’s a bad bet to lose—it’s not too good to win, either. But definitely the shame of it would be enjoyable. It’s my trump card, for sure. He tries not to bring it up at all costs. Unless he did something horrible to me, I don’t know if I could ever cash it in. It would change our relationship forever.”
On his invisible friend:
“His name was Boy. I think I just lived in an imaginary world. I was always playing war in the woods, people are chasing me… I wasn’t doing it because I was desperate for friends. I had friends.”
On the TV show, The Biggest Loser:
“I really do love it. It’s terrible and it’s bad, but I really do think it’s because I have an inner fat kid in me. I can completely lose myself into just absolutely satisfying things—a really amazing cheeseburger, a pizza, good fries, a beer. I enjoy being comfortable and eating whatever the hell I like.”
On his love of cake:
“I just love cake. Confetti cake, to be specific. It has little colored candies inside the cake, and then you get the confetti icing, which is really hard to find sometimes. It’s really hard to explain to people, because it’s not icing with sprinkles on top. It’s icing that actually has candies inside of it. It’s Funfetti icing. It’s a beautiful mix. It is an angel sent from heaven.”
He’s a man after our own
