It’s no surprise that the Sexiest Man Alive recognizes the sexiness of the Sexiest Man Alive who came before him, George Clooney. So let’s all just take a deep breath as we listen to Channing Tatum joke about how he would most definitely have sweaty man sex with the Silver Fox, shall we?
From The Sun:
“I’ve spent time with George Clooney and he’s the most interesting man on the planet.
He can do it all. Yep, I guess what I’m saying is I’d have sex with him.”
Fair enough, dude. Some hotness translates into all bodily languages, if you feel me, and I think George qualifies here. I don’t think I’ve ever run into a person – male or female, gay or straight – that doesn’t think George Clooney is good looking. That doesn’t mean they’re all attracted to him, but they can acknowledge a handsome face when they see one. Though I have to say, I hope Channing isn’t wanting to settle down – George would never put a ring on it.

I love Channing Tatum, ok? I love him to death. I don’t think he’s, like, the sexiest man alive or anything, but I just think he seems so charming and likable in all his interviews and in all of his movies. My boyfriend agrees, and that’s why we’ve started a Channing Tatum movie collection. That’s also why we affectionately refer to him as “The Tater.” There’s a whole lot of Tater love going on in my house.
But you guys, Mike & Ikes? SO GROSS. Ugh, just seeing this portrait – made by pop artist Jason Mercier, by the way – fills me with disappointment from all my Halloweens past. I can’t even take this. The portrait was made using 5,000 Mike & Ikes, and that makes me want to vomit 5,000 times. Mike & Ikes are even worse than Milk Duds, and that’s really saying something.
So basically, it’s early, I fell in the snow after being outside for like three seconds in the snow, I’m cold, and now I feel sick after looking at so many stupid Mike & Ikes. But I love Channing Tatum. So I think this is still going to be a good day.

The actor and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
Crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November, the Magic Mike star admitted he and the American Horror Story: Asylum actress, both 32, had babies on the brain, adding a family wasn’t too far off in their future.
“I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” Tatum told PEOPLE recently. “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.”
Left up to Tatum, the couple — who wed in Malibu in 2009 — would be going the distance … all the way into the double digits. “It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want like 15 kids,’” he noted. “Jenna will be like, ‘Well you better get another wife!’
Hear that, guys? Hear it? It’s the collective screams and groans of a million disappointed women who actually, for whatever reason, thought they stood a chance with the ‘Dear John’ actor.
Congratulations to the new family!

Channing [Tatum] was amazing. He’s a superstar. Everybody wants to have sex with him.
—Amanda Seyfried, whose opinions I generally find to be amicable, on Channing Tatum, who was, incidentally, this year’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. Hear that sound? No? That’s the sound of me YAKKING from 30,000 feet above y’alls heads. LOOK THE F-CK OUT.
Really and truly, though, there’s only one person I can think of who I positively know would have sex with Channing Tatum. She’s a Facebook friend and she’s always posting sadsack things about how she’s going to curl up and watch ‘Dear John’ for the sixteenth time this month, or how she’s going to “stay in” tonight because she’s OMG SO SAD and I DEFINE MYSELF THROUGH MY MAN, and how amazing and wonderful and positively darling Channing Tatum just has to be in real life, because of course he’s exactly the way he’s portrayed in all of his movies combined. And you know what? That girl is a pain in the ass. She is a pain in my ass and she would just love to have sex with Channing Tatum, so maybe I should lock her in a room with this simple-ass Amanda Seyfried, and let the two of them duke it out.
It’d at least more entertaining than the constant status updates. Or having to look at Channing Tatum’s squashed sack of sausage for a face.

Yeah, I know, this isn’t a surprise. We heard about this last week, and there wasn’t even a stupid spoiler alert. But regardless of the shock factor, this story is something that needs to be covered. People magazine looked at every single living man, and out of all of them, they chose Channing Tatum as the very sexiest. And if that’s not newsworthy, I don’t know what is.
Here’s his little interview from the magazine. It’s not anything groundbreaking, but you can probably see why I said that he was charming as hell.
He may have bared (almost) all of that incredibly chiseled body in this year’s Magic Mike but 2012′s Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum was still modest when he heard the news.
“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.”
“It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want like 15 kids,’” he continues. “Jenna will be like, ‘Well you better get another wife!’”
Currently training to play an Olympic athlete in next year’s Foxcatcher, Tatum is all heart and muscle at 195 pounds. “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.”
Which is just fine by his wife. “People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don’t know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is,” says Dewan-Tatum, 31. “He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get.”
I don’t know what it is, but I just love a man that says “y’all.” Really, I just love country boys in general. You guys from the South know what I’m talking about: there’s a country boy with a country dialect who’s way into NASCAR and Bud Light and waving Confederate flags and homophobia, and then there’s a country boy with a country dialect who isn’t a redneck. The latter is awesome. My fiancé is that kind of country boy. Like, he’s got a hot bod and he makes me laugh or whatever, but when I first heard him speak, I was like whoa. What was I talking about?
Oh yeah, Channing Tatum. He seems like a total sweetheart, right? And he wants babies, and he gives his dogs baths with his wife. Do you need anymore convincing?

Ok, probably. Channing Tatum is probably going to be People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. Like, we’re pretty sure about it.
Gossip Con got a tip that on November 14th, Channing will be announced as the sexiest of all living men. That seems like a good bet, right? Two words: Magic Mike. And a few more words: do you remember when Magic Mike came out and 95% of all the women in the world absolutely flipped their shit, and your great aunt was posting weird things about it on Facebook, and you saw groups of ladies holding hands and squealing about hot male strippers while you were just trying to buy tickets for the Katy Perry movie? Because I really, really remember that. And it was mildly traumatizing.
Anyway, People commented on this rumor by saying that they weren’t going to comment on it. Regardless, I’m pretty sure this is going to be right. Channing Tatum has been on fire this year, hasn’t he? Personally, I didn’t get it at all – I saw The Vow, and it was all right, but it didn’t make me feel a ton of feelings for him or anything – until I watched 21 Jump Street and half of Step Up. And sorry, but he’s charming as hell. I still don’t think he’s the Sexiest Man Alive, but I get it. And, of course, he makes a whole, whole lot more sense than last year’s choice. Bradley Cooper, remember? Ridiculous.
What do you guys think? Do you love this guy? Do I need to see Magic Mike? Let’s discuss this.
