Channing Tatum Named People’s Sexiest Man Alive

Channing Tatum has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012 and he’s already responded to the news with his usual “aw shucks” modesty nobody really knows he has because his movies have been terrible until just this year. (Here’s a little experiment: Watch G.I. Joe then 21 Jump Street and the fucking awesome Magic Mike and try to convince yourself they all star the same Channing Tatum. It’s impossible.):

“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?'”

“So then I’m like, ‘Yoooo…’ and she’s all, ‘Dayamn!’ And the dogs are like, ‘Woof,’ because they aren’t people and can’t talk even though that shit would be tight.”
