Channing Tatum: I Won the Lottery

No, not that lottery. He won the fame lottery. Newly married Channing Tatum's career is on fire but he has no idea how he got this far.

But just as a thank you to his fans he decided to shed his clothes for the upcoming issue of GQ magazine. In the article he talks about getting lucky in Hollywood, his new movie, and his favorite place in the world.

Here are some highlights from the interview via Just Jared:

Channing on how he fell into Hollywood: “I got crazy lucky. Like, sometimes I think I won the lottery or something. At times it feels like the bottom’s gonna fall out. Just ’cause I don’t really know how I got here. But I just keep moving forward, and it just keeps getting better and better.”

Channing on his movies Step Up and Coach Carter: “[They're called] tweeners—you know, those midlevel-budget movies that just kinda do good.”

Channing on G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, out August 7: “This is, like, my first step out into the whole commercial realm. I hope it does okay.”

Channing on being proud of his presidential pick in Alabama, which is largely Republican: “I don’t care. If they don’t like me because I voted for Obama, then f— them. I like horses and I like Obama. Nothin’ wrong with hat.”

Channing on his Uncle Bruce’s 300-acre ranch in Wetumpka (33 miles northeast of Montgomery, Alabama): “[It's my] favorite place on the planet, by far. ‘Cause it’s real, you know?”
