Channing Tatum Crowned People’s Sexiest Man Alive

And 2012’s sexiest man alive is…Channing Tatum!

Sorry ladies, it just wasn’t Ryan Gosling’s year (again!), but it definitely was a big year for Channing. With roles in The Vow and Magic Mike, we definitely think People made a good choice. Man is Jenna Dewan-Tatum lucky!

So how what was Channing’s reaction to hearing he earned the top honor? “My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me. I told Jenna after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked.”

So we know that Channing has the looks and the muscles, but what’s something we might not know about this sexy man? “People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don’t know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is,” says Dewan-Tatum. “He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get.”

What do you think of People’s choice for Sexiest Man Alive? Do you agree? Be sure to pick up the issue on newsstands Friday featuring other guys like Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper, Nick Jonas, and more.
