Channing Tatum Shares Personal Tales With GQ Magazine


GQ Magazine chose Channing Tatum to be on the cover of their May Issue. The actor is currently on the promotional rounds, telling people about his about his upcoming movie 22 Jump Street, the sequel to the film 21 Jump Street, the film based on the hit tv series of the same name back in the 1980s. Not only did they get their hands on one of Hollywood’s hottest hunks, but they also found out that Channing isn’t afraid to get a little intimate, and shared some pretty revealing things about himself. From drinking to how Jonah Hill bet him to kiss his penis if their film 21 Jump Street broke $35 million during its open weekend.

 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 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 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 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.”

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.”


The issue hits stands May 27. His new film 22 Jump Street hits theaters June 13, 2014.
