If you’re not already on team Channing Tatum, first of all, why on earth not, but more importantly, prepare for that to change immediately. The actor and all-round dreamboat proved why we’re all obsessed with him yesterday in a Reddit AMA session. For the uninitiated AMA stands for Ask Me Anything and allows fans to ask questions directly to their favourite stars. The good news is Channing didn’t hold back.
The actor got involved as part of the promotion for his upcoming move Magic Mike XXL so it was only right that the questions started there. One fan asked him about what it was like, acting opposite co-star Matt Bomer.
“No matter if you’re a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in Matt Bomer’s eye,” he wrote. “I don’t know what they are made of outside dreams and rainbows and amazingness but it doesn’t truly matter.”
He also admitted that he secretly dreams about getting a lap dance from fellow Magic Mike co-star, Kevin Nash: “I’ve always wanted to know what it feels like to be tiny in his arms and thrown around,” he wrote.
Unsurprisingly, Channing is a mainstay on Sexiest Men lists so naturally that was a hot topic too. The main takeaways? He calls his penis “Gilbert” and says that fans are welcome to grope him on one condition: “you’d have to ask my wife,” he wrote. “It depends on her mood.”
The 35 year-old actor met wife Jenna Dewan Tatum on the set of Step Up in 2005. Asked how many times is too many times to watch the movie, he replied: “I guess you need to see it as many times as it takes you realize how bad my acting is in it. And fast forward to the dancing parts after that.”
The hilarious self-deprecation didn’t end there. Asked what happened with his movie Jupiter Ascending that flopped on the box office this year, he responded: “Great question. I have the same one to myself.”
One fan asked which three items he would bring to a desert island. “How about a magical seashell that’s always filled with bourbon,” he wrote. “And I would like magical palm tree that had a lot of shade but instead of coconut’s, there’s just peanut butter jelly sandwiches with cheetos underneath. And my wife that is always happy and possibly naked.”
He also settled a very important matter. In the case of a zombie apocalypse he “would find a crossbow, and an army of ninja chimpanzees that crush people all around me…or I would just got to Sandra Bullock’s house as I’m sure she has all that stuff because she’s dope and kick ass.”
You’ve just fallen in love with him, haven’t you? We told you so…
