Channing Tatum Named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by ‘People’

TatumChanning Tatum is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012:

"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."

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."

Since I know everyone's been mulling their choices while waiting with bated breath for this announcement, who would you pick as the sexiest man alive?

    This is one good-looking and damned sexy man but what his wife has to say endears me to him. Long live anyone who is “emotionally deep and spiritually open.” Plus he’s fun.

    I have always hated this entire concept….they are actors for God’s sake.
    Why not make this a REAL “Sexiest Man Alive” contest, and let the average guy out there compete. There are millions of real guys that are down-to-earth, good looking, sensitive, caring, intelligent, and have none of the pretentiousness or attitude that these actors have.
    This isn’t real sexiness seen here…it’s just good PR for People magazine.

    Meh……. I think he was much better looking years ago- but the sexiest man alive- thats a bit of a long shot. People magazine looks @ who & what sells on the cover & his flash in the pan time in now……

    Give me a flying flipping break…

    The man is beautiful and, IMHO, it’s the hottest ass to ever make that cover.

    btw, you’ve gotta love these people who say he doesn’t do anything for them as if they could be the first ones on their knees if he asked.

    I think he is very sexy… in that dumb lumbering guy type of way, which is my type. But C’mon guys! His body is gorgeous. He’s a strapping, hunky man, fer Chrissakes! I think he’s good looking in a sultry way… not a 10, but the whole package is an instant boner for me.

    Let me say this on Matt Bomer v. Channing…
    When I imagine having a roll in the hay, I think Tatem would be boffo awesome. Bomer is too prissy looking, too fastidious and too mincing… at least that’s the vibe I get. Channing on the other hand would be all about lust!

    No doubt about it the guy is smokin hot. I personally would choose Cristiano Ronaldo or gay porn model Topher DiMaggio. But as they say “De gustibus non disputandun est”.

    Didn’t he come out as Bisexual at one point in his life before marrying his wife?

    I have been a fan of him since his first dancing movie! Bradly Cooper now Channing. lovely.

    He’s as good a choice for one of these BS lists as anyone. Yes, he is a hottie, and yes, he has animal charisma, something many more ‘good looking’, even very good looking men and women, don’t have. It makes the difference.

  10. Sean says

    There are so many losers who read this blog apparently.

    He’s smokin’ hot. Maybe he’s not exactly your type, but 95% of the world would kill to sleep with him.

    Someone even called him “totally gross.” Get real.

    I think People’s need to re-examine their definition of sexy. Tatum is a good looking guy but I do not see him as sexy – yes, even in Magic Mike. I think he and Alex Pettyfer were the 2 least sexy guys in MM, IMO. I would’ve picked Matt Bomer for sure. Have you seen his ass, OMG.

    The charming Mr Tatum deserves the honor- he not only loves flashing his perfect butt for his fans on screen but he is obviously a lot smarter in handling his career than many other male starlets.

    Is this a joke ? I’m sorry. I just don’t see it. Sexiest man alive ? He’s just average. I think the problem is these magazines have to pick a new man each year and they have run out.

    He’s not ugly by any means but I wouldn’t look at him twice in the street. People get sucked into all this movie star crap and suddenly these average looking people are considered sexy.

    My vote for sexiest man alive would be actor Terry Crews.
