Report: Channing Tatum to be Named People's 2012 "Sexiest Man Alive"
Though the movie in which he played a stripper may have had something to do with it, Channing Tatum will reportedly be named People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2012 next week.
The "Magic Mike" star would be unveiled as the popular magazine's choice on November 14th. Past honorees include Bradley Cooper in 2011 and Ryan Reynolds in 2010.
However, when reached for comment, People stated to Gossip Cop, "We never comment on who the Sexiest Man Alive is until the issue is revealed."
Even if Channing doesn't nab the top spot, his rocket to fame this year will surely put him in a top contender position.
Closeted ferret face in 2011, Closeted tard face in 2012.
Jesus, they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel.
If he wasn't famous and you saw him walking down the street, you wouldn't turn your head.
Channing Tatum was an Obama supporter in 2008, despite the heat he took for it from his friends back home in Alabama.
Is he supporting Obama again in 2012?
The majority of us that speculated on the other thread were correct.
He may not be ideal, but he's definitely sexier than the title holder from 2011 - Bradley Cooper.
He is particularly unattractive and an awful actor.
R8 = Alex Pettyfer
...who has charisma and personality, r9, even if he's a difficult punk ass on set.
Alex Pettyfer is a nobody compared to Channing Tatum.
When is it ever gonna be my year?
Tatum has kissed and sucked the right parts on the right people in order to advance his career past the point of having to worry he is a no-talent tard face.
As much as he is an asshole, a good part of his declining career is probably due to him not playing the game.
Why the bitching? It's certainly not like I had a chance in hell.
I always love how the "Sexiest Man Alive" is in direct proportion to who's had the most successful year. I bet you anything that if Judah Friedlander opened three big movies next year, he'd get the title.
Having said that, Channing Tatum is fucking gorgeous.
He's not even good-looking! And he has the sexiness and raw charisma of a bar of soap.
His publicist is a genius.
he's UGLY!!!!!!!!!!! WTF??? whose cock did he suck to get that?
I see the Channing Tatum hater/ Bomer fangurl troll is in full-effect tonight! Give it up, Channing is still more famous than Matt outside of DL!
Darlin', Matt Bomer is the star of "White Collar" for four seasons, on the USA Network a BASIC cable channel that comes with every cable package. Even if you've never seen an episode, just turn on the channel a commercial will play. He is hardly the nobody you claim he is.
Guess this was a big snooze for DL.
Everyone that works with Tatum thinks he is a genuine and nice person. He has freely admitted in interviews that he isn't the best actor and doesn't seem to take himself too seriously.
He is openly very gay friendly, supposedly bisexual, and invested his own money into a movie about male strippers that allowed us to finally get a peak at Bomer's gorgeous ass.
I'm okay with the pick honestly.
Do people really care about People Magazine's selection?
I'm fine with this, although People could never go wrong with Ryan Gosling.
The fact that Channing is from Alabama and is willing to support Obama even though most of the people from this state do not shows he is a man of character.
Or that he's trying to get ahead in Hollywood, r25
Congratulations R25. I've been here 11 years and that is the single stupidest thing I've ever read on Datalounge. The Prize Patrol is on its way to your house to give you your $10,000 check and a vicious face-slapping.
After tonight, the United States will have selected a black President more times than People has selected a black Sexiest Man.
That article is over 3 years old.
That said, lots of celebrities come from red stats and are Democrats. And guess what? There are a lot of regular Democrats in red states as well. Not exactly that remarkable.
People always chooses a white man over thirty who had carried or will carry a major Hollywood movie within the year. TV stars are not considered AT ALL - remember when they snubbed Patrick Dempsey?
Given that Channing was the lead in three movies this year that made over $100 million at the box office, I wouldn't have been shocked if People hadn't named him.
That should have been "I would have been shocked...".
[quote]I wouldn't have been shocked if People hadn't named him.
I think you've got an extra negative in there, dear.
You probably meant to say "I WOULD have been shocked if People hadn't named him."
[quote]If he wasn't famous and you saw him walking down the street, you wouldn't turn your head.
Exactly. Stop into any Midwestern blue-collar bar and you'll see several of him.
Amazing Channing would support Obama because according to Datalounge, he's now a billionaire from all the profits he made from "Magic Mike".

Are you sure about that?
1986 -- Mark Harmon
1987 -- Harry Hamlin
1988 - John F. Kennedy, Jr.
Just watche "Magic Mike" last night and "21 Jump Street" the other on cable and he might be sexy to some but he sure as shit is no actor.
sexiest man awards prove americans are children and need to be conquered and enslaved 4 wasting their freedoms on nonsense
Channing Tatum is essentially the second coming of Bruce Willis. Sexy in a meathead way that doesn't turn off straight guys, very working-class, not very "actor-y" but appealing enough with his own charisma. It's no surprise that "White House Down" is being likened (and was probably pitched as) "Die Hard in the White House".
There's nothing wrong with his selection, after all this is essentially meaningless, but I genuinely wonder if the People editors sit around the table and think to themselves, "Hey, this year, maybe we could give it to a minority." I mean, even freaking Will Smith, the most mainstream black man on Earth - even more than Barack Obama - has never gotten "Sexiest Man."
I heard he likes to fuck bareback and loves to rim bubble butt bottoms like Justin Timberlake.
Well, I heard he enjoys poppers (Jungle Juice) and smokes crystal meth to maintain his weight.
Jungle Juice and crystal meth have ravaged his tard face.
I sucked his dick once.
R56/R57, isn't there a customer's hair you should be washing at this moment?
I sucked his dick twice.
R60, isn't there a blowjob you should be performing on a desperate escort for $25?
R62, can I suck yours for $15?
He certainly has a certain sexiness, IMO. But "sexiest man alive"? I THINK NOT! His looks have definitely taken a hit in the last few years. That face is looking a tich roided, if you ask me. He's definitely getting that bloated apelike roid face.
Didn't Denzel get sexiest man alive one year? Coulda swore he did.
Channing,his body is hot but his face is ugly !!
Denzel got SMA in 1996.
r48 Not aware of the word "always" having an expiration date of 24 years.
He looks retarded. A hot retard. Go figure.
He has a six pack AND a six inch cock.
Doesn't Channing Tatum bottom in a porno? I think he has a sex tape. Barebacking bitch.
His body is amazing. His face is a train wreck by comparison. But no one needs to look at your face when fucking you from behind.
R72 we have a thing called trolldar here. Click it and see what happens.
I'm pretty sure my thread got over a 100 replies.
Well, he's on the cover of GQ as one of the men of the year at any rates.
Cries of outrage Ryan. At least Channing Tatum is about ten years younger than their usual pick.
Netflix sent me "The Eagle" last night.
It might have been a good movie, if Tatum had ever done anything but pout.
he's beautiful, and, more than likely, sucked a nice dick.
I've had good friends who were strippers...most always sucked dick. But were bi.
I tried watching The Vow. Not only dumb but Channing is so wooden and boring. His acting could put you to sleep.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
