Channing Tatum Tops Sexiest Man List

He may have bared (almost) all of that incredibly chiseled body in this year’s Magic Mike but 2012′s Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum was still modest when he heard the news.

“My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me,’” says Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009. “I told Jenna after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked.”

Says the actor: “She was like, ‘What?’”

Currently training to play an Olympic athlete in next year’s Foxcatcher, Tatum is all heart and muscle. “I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can’t move well and I like to move,” he says. “When I’m not training, I get really round and soft.”

Which is just fine by his wife. “People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don’t know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is,” says Dewan-Tatum, 31. “He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get.”

Channing may have topped the list, but South African athlete, Oscar Pistorius also made the list. Here are other notable mentions are:

Blake Shelton
Chris Hemsworth
