Channing Tatum, cover boy for the June issue of GQ, has opened up to the magazine about all sorts of his favorite things, from confetti cake to "The Biggest Loser" to sculpting to the promise of a smooch on the private parts from actor Jonah Hill.
But there's one quote that has the gossip world buzzing:
"I probably drink too much, you know," he tells the magazine. "My wife, that's what she bought into.… I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess."
Still, before the rehab alarms are sounded, note that he followed it up by saying that nothing slows down a person's partying like having a baby, which he and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum did last June. And he'll be off the juice for four months straight while he's filming the "Magic Mike" sequel, tentatively titled "Magic Mike XXL."
Whatever he's been doing, it's been working for him.
And more recently, he's filmed four movies in a row in about 18 months: "White House Down," "Foxcatcher," "Jupiter Ascending" and "22 Jump Street."
Even so, the foundation for the star's future appeared to be laid well in advance of his breakout success.
And about that intimate promise made by his "Jump Street" franchise costar Hill? The one that resulted when Tatum won a drunken bet in 2012 about how much their movie would make on its opening weekend?
