Channing Tatum: People’s Sexiest Man Alive

Yes, the internet was completely right: Channing Tatum has just been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, and considering he spent the better part of the year hyping up a movie where he crotch-thrusts into ladies’ faces for money? You know what? He deserves it. Rhythmic humping is hard as hell.

“My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me,'” says Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009. “I told Jenna after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked.”

Says the actor: “She was like, ‘What?'”

“Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now,” he adds. And who can blame her?

Her Alabama-bred heartthrob of a husband is also a sculptor who quotes Edgar Allan Poe, loves to give her massages and can’t wait to start their family. “I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” Tatum, 32, says. “The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”

Yes, yes, I know, Ryan Gosling is the sexiest person ever and his hair is made of Golden Retriever puppy dreams and he farts pony giggles, but let’s try and be partial here: Channing produced a movie about his life that prominently featured him taking his clothes off and twerking into people’s faces. That is a helluva lot of work. As much as I love some baby duck, Channing kinda turned it out this year.
