Channing Tatum is one of the hottest hunks in Hollywood with a healthy movie career to boot, which makes him a prime target for his buddies to mock him.
According to the ‘Magic Mike’ star, his close friends love nothing more than poking fun at his fame – which is a bonus in a way, as he admits it keeps him from getting too big-headed.
“My friends keep me grounded. It’s embarrassing to tell you how much my friends make fun of me,” Channing shared.
“Seriously, when you have a doll made of your face, it’s ridiculous how creative your friends can get… pictures, videos, little animated cartoons they’ve made. And they’re way, way not PG-13. So I get chopped down to size all the time.”
Despite his status as a sex symbol and his big muscles, Tatum insists that deep down he’s just a “fat kid on the inside.”
He explained: “I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25-30 pounds between movies. I feel like I have to do a chess movie that requires very little movement at some point, just so I can eat pizza and play chess on the beach all day.
“And then eat more pizza and cheeseburgers and drink beer. That’d be amazing. I’d give anything for that. I gotta figure that movie out.”
Channing also talked about his happy married life with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum – who also happens to be carrying their first baby.
“You have to want it,” he said of their perfect relationship, in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine.
“Jenna’s and my thing is checking in with each other all the time, like ‘On a scale from one to 10, how much do you love me right now?’ And you gotta be honest, and you’ve got to want an honest answer.”
