Shirtless Channing Thinks He's Won the Lottery

Channing Tatum's abs are center stage in GQ's August 2009 issue as he starts promoting G.I. Joe. The actor got married to Jenna Dewan this weekend — ICYMI, check out their wedding photos. Before he tied the knot, he sat down with the magazine to give a very sweet interview about his childhood, newfound fame, and the love of his life Jenna. Here's more:

  • 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 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 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."

he's smokin hot...at least he's honest about his past and not pretending to be this all-knowing genious. he seems to be a good fit for GI Joe and i read somewhere that he was going to be in a Nicholas Sparks' movie where'd he'd play a military guy in love (who knows if this is still true though!)

usually he's hot (like here), but then i also feel like his weight really yo-yo's. like for the rehearsal dinner, he kinda looked like he had a gut or something..anyhoo, loved him in step up and he will be the reason i check out g.i. joe

i spotted him when he was in Step Up.. super cute in there, then he's in "She's the man".. his face got older but his body is still very hot... he has potential, I think..

OK, if Channing is a no, then who the hell is a yes? This boy is cute cute cute, and I love that he's grateful for his blessings. I also love that he loves horses, too!

I think we won the lottery with these pics. He has serious "Bro" appeal. I can't help it. And he can dance!
