Channing Tatum is a man with large appetites – for life experiences, for challenging acting roles and for alcohol.
“My wife, that’s what she bought into … I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess. There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”
“Then, at the end of that movie,” he says, “it’s go time.”
It’s not just booze, either. Tatum also has a sweet tooth – and is especially fond of cake.
Although he likes to indulge, one of Tatum’s favorite TV shows is the weight-loss competition series The Biggest Loser.
