We've mentioned it before, but we'll say it again: 2012 is definitely the year of Channing Tatum.
Channing Tatum's stripper fear
The 32-year-old actor is not only one of GQ's Men of the Year, but he's also been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
As predicted, the magazine has unveiled a "charming, chiseled" Channing on this week's cover, which features the "Magic Mike" actor in a casual white tank and slacks.
The low-key look fits the Southern star, who at first thought People was pulling his leg.
"I play a lot of practical jokes, so my first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" he said. "I told [my wife] Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked. She was like, 'What?!'"
Yes, this sexy man is taken - he married his "Step Up" co-star Jenna Dewan in 2009.
And while his wife is enjoying her husband's rep - Channing can't quite bring himself to say it, but Jenna's taken to calling him "the Sexiest Man Alive," because who wouldn't? - she tells People that he's far more than just a ripped physique.
"People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is," the 31-year-old actress, who recently appeared on "American Horror Story," told the magazine. "He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."
Channing, who's had a busy year with back-to-back lead roles in "The Vow," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike," is now training to portray an Olympic wrestler in 2013's "Foxcatcher." And in his spare time, it sounds like he's also working on expanding his family.
"I'm ready; I think she's ready. It's more about trying to find the right time," Channing said of having kids. "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."

LOL so funny. These guys are all products of Photoshop and airbrushing. Go search the web and find some pics of these so called hot guys and they all have the beer hot dog gut hanging. You go Hollywood.
he's not my type .. but he's very cute.
i want human contact...its much more rewarding then this sh-t
i don't give an F about being my age because i still get the attention when i'm out and from everyone..i could care less
what you think about my life.
Rob Lowe! Someone needs glasses! He could not hold a candle to this guy! Also a lot older.
I really think they could have picked a better picture of him for their cover! I have seen him in many photos and I don't think this one does him justice. Just my humble opinion.
and you smell–everyone Smells it from here...try douching.
I am a lesbian but if this man was to come my way i would "do him"!!! wat a handsome man !
Evidently the judges have never seen me.
Way to go Bill... You have my condolences
NOT. what a horrible, horrlbe choice.
Dang you guys have no life give the man credit for actually making the magazine cover, not alot of celebs can get that. Wether he deserves it or not he's pretty hot, may not be the hunk of everybodys dream but he's got the characsteristics.
Good looking guy, terrible actor.
Thank you! I thought I was the only one that thought this!
Yay! Congratulations Channing you're a DOLL!
Never heard of him. What's with the puppy face look uh what your name again?
Sounds like you are jealous.
The puppyface made about 40 million this year. I guess we should ask you what's your name again?
Should have been Jensen Ackles,just saying!
Never heard of him.
you must be so cool!
Sounds like this board has a massive case of pnniss envy
and mowing the lawn...I miss you Nonno. Love, Anna.
Never heard of him....or his wife, for that matter.
Okay A) That is not a casual white tank top. It's a wife beater and it's tacky. And 2) Channing Tatum is a total butter face. Not even in the top 500,000 of attractive men. My dogs wrinkly balls are more attractive than this dude.
You make wrinkly dog balls sound like a bad thing?
You are an idiot. I am a dude and I can admit he's attractive.
How in the hell?
I thought the same thing JPTN.
Ok he may be in the top 500 cutest boys but come on! This guy for number one?!? You guys are nuts!
please don't cheat on me,, please, please i'll just die..please please.....i control you remember that...
let's f every wednesday ok? please don't cheat i beg of you...
Gorgeous guy. Unbelievably gifted with the MOST outrageous core control I have EVER seen. Nice to hear there is more to him that just hunkiness!
It's nice to see a special needs person win for once.
Exactly! Is he not one of the most inbred looking mfr you"ve ever seen?And the few movies I've seen him make it clear his acting ability is...well, non-existent. Keep his name in mind though, he'll be a trivia question within the next few years.
my dad use to wear shirts like that, under his real shirt in cold weather, looks like underwear
Maybe nex year.
he's an ugly lil pickle isnt he!
ok, so I look but never do anything about it. he's ok, but not gorgeous. can't think of a single actor I would come out for. now musicians, that's another story.....
I think I just found my Christian Grey!!!!
The word on the street in Castro is that he has a small one. I don't like that.
Is it me or are guys names getting more and more feminine sounding?
how come he wasn't last year? does he have a movie coming out..
A dubious distinction.
Ha ha, great name, Lance!
Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it.
Why isn't he smiling.....oh wait....heh heh...
Teeth are in production
my tingle is not getting excited either–maybe because they all like this where i work. lol
He has ugly teeth!.....
USA never ceases to amaze me. There are soo many other dudes, YES I SAID IT, soo many other dudes that look waaaaaayyyy more beautiful than this man. SMH!! Good night folks lol
Its a fallacy.understand relative terms,who did u compare with?women have given birth to men,dont deceive to uaself!
I loved Channing in The Vow, one of my favorite movies of all time. Congratulations to him–what a hunk. I still wish Ryan Goesling would win some year soon.
the vow? raise the bar!
Who the hell is that?
He looks like he just lost his dog.
I thought it would be Candy Crawley
Thought for sure I won this year. Dammit!
You must be kidding! right?
The US is a funny country. There is room for any stupidity.
Channing you make me h*rny baby.
Baaaarf! That guy is ugly and generic.
I'd hit that.
I dont think so!!!!
Uhhhhhhh whoever said he's too scrawny must have never seen him with his shirt off...that boy is ripped.
i thought it was Bashir al-Assad
Howabout Rob Lowe?
Buffet is a TROLL!
We need to help Warren Buffet with his Dementia.
He's ok. I would have voted for "sir" at 9:52.
love fergi in colombia
Good for him, I'm not spending my life chasing after some image of a man that isn't me. I have more important things to worry about.
Who picks these clowns?
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan lose again
That's because they are just plain losers! Maybe they could win on "the biggest loser" show.
Doesn't do a thing for me. But, I'm sure the feeling would be mutual. He's too scrawny-needs some substance on those bones. Too pretty boy.
You're a lesbean.
Lesbean? This must be cnn.fr
YOU PICKED THE WRONG PERSON,SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEREK HOUGH.ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.
funny, i thought i was.
It's an understandable mistake since you've never met ME.
A lot of people around me seem to have a fixation with the word, "narcissism". I have no idea what that's about.
Are you Yoda?
@Chris, brilliant! I bow to your superior humor.
