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.

Even Dick Morris saw this coming.

How nice.

Closeted ferret face in 2011, Closeted tard face in 2012.

Jesus, they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

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?

by Anonymousreply 611/05/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 711/05/2012

He is particularly unattractive and an awful actor.

Alex Pettyfer is a nobody compared to Channing Tatum.

When is it ever gonna be my year?

by Anonymousreply 1211/05/2012

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.

Pettyfer hasn't.

As much as he is an asshole, a good part of his declining career is probably due to him not playing the game.

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.

by Anonymousreply 1611/05/2012

He's not even good-looking! And he has the sexiness and raw charisma of a bar of soap.

His publicist is a genius.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2211/06/2012

Do people really care about People Magazine's selection?

by Anonymousreply 2311/06/2012

I'm fine with this, although People could never go wrong with Ryan Gosling.

by Anonymousreply 2411/06/2012

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.

I'm OK with this pick, largely because I was afraid that *barf* Justin Timberlake was going to win.

He might be a nice guy, but he is certainly not good looking or in any way exciting. Worst pick since Ryan Reynolds. It doesn't get any blander than Ryan. People is just a joke.

by Anonymousreply 3211/06/2012

R 20 is correct...Matt is more prevelant in media than Tatum. I hope Matt supported Obama too, 'cause he has this Obama supporters' vote for sexiest man...0

by Anonymousreply 3311/06/2012

R33 - Channing is a successful movie star. Matt is an actor on a basic cable show.

Channing has also been generous in showing his naked ass in recent movies.

Channing Tatum article about Obama:

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?

by Anonymousreply 3811/06/2012

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.

If Idris Elba's profile was higher, I think he'd be considered.

AFAIC, he is sexy as fuck.

It's still disgusting that no sexy as fuck black man's profile is higher in Hollywood and bland, barely talented white bread is sold as sex symbols year after year.

by Anonymousreply 5411/07/2012

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."

by Anonymousreply 5511/07/2012

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.

It might have been a good movie, if Tatum had ever done anything but pout.
