It’s official! Channing Tatum is named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012. The announcement was made by the magazine on Wednesday and has put an end to the rivalry (if there was any) between Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum for the coveted title.
Most people saw it coming especially after “Magic Mike” was released. The movie probably did the trick after seeing Tatum sans his clothes and busting some very sexy dance moves. It showcased the actor’s fit bod and boy, can he bust a move on the dance floor!
The 32-year old actor was quite modest even after the announcement was made. He has followed the footsteps of actors Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Actor Ryan Gosling has also been a top pick for two years now, but Tatum is once again denied of the title, but we don’t see that as a great deal for him.
Tatum first thought people were just “messing with him”. Even wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum did not believe it at first. Now, she calls him the Sexiest Man Alive. Well, if Channing is the Sexiest Man Alive, Jenna is the Luckiest Woman Alive.
The couple met in 2006 while shooting the first installment of the “Step Up” movie franchise. They got engaged in 2008 and got hitched the year after in Malibu, California. Jenna was so proud of her husband and could not help but brag about “how emotionally deep and spiritually open Channing is”.
