5 Things You Didn't Know About Channing Tatum

This just in: Channing Tatum is a super stud…Yes, you already knew that, but People magazine made it official today. 

Everyone knows that Channing is hot, used to be a stripper/model, and is from the South. But there may be a few things you might not be quite up to speed on. Here are five of them…

The Duke: Channing has a habit of landing roles of characters that are named “Duke.” He’s played Duke in three movies now. To be fair, two of movies are G.I. Joe-related—G.I. Joe: Retaliation and G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. But he was also the Duke in She’s the Man. And, now, he’s the Duke of hotness…Well done sir!

Ricky Martin Connections: Before he was playing in movies like Step Up and Magic Mike and starring alongside the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill, Mr. Tatum’s big break was backup dancing in the Ricky Martin music video “She Bangs.” He earned $400 bucks for the gig and, yes… this was after the whole stripper stint.

Scorched Member: While filming the 2011 film The Eagle, Channing suffered a severe injury to a very sensitive area on his body. A crewmember reportedly poured water down his wet suit that was a little too hot… He previously told Details magazine it "pretty much burned the skin off the head of my d*ck" and "it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life." Fear not, Channing lovers. His man unit is reportedly back in tip-top shape! "Now my p*nis is fantastic!” he said. “One hundred percent recovered." 

Christian Grey: So how can we put this brand new “Sexiest Man” title to good use? Gee, I don’t know…How about putting him in Fifty Shades of Grey? Fortunately for S&M fans everywhere, Channing is on board! Well, on one condition… “I'd only be allowed if my wife was Ana,” he told Glamour magazine. “She’s read the books so I don’t think she’d be impressed if she couldn’t be Ana!” (Don’t worry, Ana's a babe!)

Massage Therapy: While filming his 2009 film Fighter, producers had a massage bed fitted in the movie star’s set trailer. The maneuver wasn’t an effort to please his high maintenance Hollywood personality—he’s actually a pretty down to earth guy It was part of his massage therapy required after getting his ass kicked without a stunt double day in and day out. And, no ladies… you can’t be the one massaging him.
