The readers of People Magazine have named 32-year-old heartthrob Channing Tatum the “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2012. The Alabama-born actor has most recently been seen in such critically acclaimed roles as a male stripper in “Magic Mike” and an undercover cop in “21 Jump Street.”
Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009, was apparently shocked by the accolade, saying, "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me.'" He wasn’t exactly at his sexiest when he found out; he told his wife after they’d been “in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."
In a People interview, Tatum says that he and Jenna are “ready” to have children and adds, "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."
Jenna describes him as “such an open-hearted person” and says that "people know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is."
It's hard to decide, but who do you think is the sexiest-ever guy to be named “Sexiest Man Alive”?
