Magic Mike star Channing Tatum has been named 2012′s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
When 32-year-old Tatum was told he was named the Sexiest Man Alive, he was a little surprised. “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.”
Now, Tatum’s wife jokingly calls him the “Sexiest Man Alive”.
Tatum, who showed off his ripped muscles in the movie Magic Mike earlier this year, is currently training to play an Olympic athlete in next year’s Foxcatcher.
“I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can’t move well and I like to move,” he says. “When I’m not training, I get really round and soft.”
