The newly married (sorry ladies) Channing Tatum is the coverboy for the August issue of GQ. The interview was conducted at his uncle’s home in Alabama before Channing married his Step Up costar, Jenna Dewan. Here are some highlights:
- On how his career got started: “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.”
- On dieting for a role/photo shoot: “I have a special meal plan that I’m on. It’s pretty much just chicken and broccoli and brown rice. Four times a day. And egg whites. Just to get lean. I got a job coming up, too, that I’m starting in August, that I’m starting to train for. It’s called The Eagle of the Ninth. It’s a Kevin Macdonald film. He did The Last King of Scotland.”
- On G.I. Joe: “This is, like, my first step out into the whole commercial realm. I hope it does okay.”
- On his life: ”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.”
- On Alabama: ”I talk different, I walk different, everything. I don’t have one single bad memory [there]. Not one. It was my sanctuary. I hated school, wasn’t good in school, and me and my dad butted heads about that. But nothing mattered when I went home to Alabama.”
- On future home-building plans: Channing points out a spot on his uncle‘s property where he he says “I’m a-gonna build mine right about there. Nothin’ big. Just enough for him and Jenna to come and relax, and for Jenna’s folks to visit. Ride horses, four-wheelers. It’s bigger than the tub at the Soho Grand.”
- On Republicans in Alabama disliking his politics: ”I don’t care. If they don’t like me because I voted for Obama, then f**k them. I like horses and I like Obama. Nothin’ wrong with that.”
- On his mom and education: ”If it wasn’t for her literally doing my homework for me, I would not have even graduated high school. Guaranteed . . . My mom always said, ‘Luck is nothing but preparation and opportunity.’ I think because I’ve had that history of not really being great in school, I probably try to overcompensate. That’s why I try to read so many books. Just so I don’t feel . . . uneducated.”
- On what Channing is reading: “I got two books on [Kindle]… [one] about the start and finish of the Roman Empire. I don’t have to read this stuff, but I love it.”
- On hunting: “I have a motto: You don’t kill anything you ain’t gonna eat.”
Check out the full interview at GQ. We’ll likely be seeing a lot more of Channing as he promotes his new movie, G.I. Joe, opening in August.
