Channing Tatum opens up in the June issue of GQ about being a “high-functioning” alcoholic, his love for Funfetti cake, and the X-rated bet he made with Jonah Hill .


Tatum’s latest interview with the men’s magazine is chock full of the actor’s self-proclaimed vices.

The Magic Mike star admits that “The Biggest Loser” is his favorite TV show because underneath his chiseled frame there is an “inner fat kid.”

“I just love cake,” he explains. “Confetti cake, to be specific. It has little colored candies inside the cake, and then you get the confetti icing, which is really hard to find sometimes.”

“It’s really hard to explain to people, because it’s not icing with sprinkles on top,” he continues. “It’s icing that actually has candies inside of it. It’s Funfetti icing.”

“The icing, coupled with the actual confetti cake. It’s a beautiful mix,” he goes on. “It is an angel sent from heaven.”

Tatum has an equal passion for alcohol.

“I probably drink too much,” he admits. “I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic.”

“There’s probably a tendency to escape,” the actor explains. “I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”

Tatum says that having his daughter Everly has definitely made him cut back, and he will abstain from alcohol for four months while filming the Magic Mike sequel.

“Then, at the end of that movie,” he says, “it’s go time.”

Tatum was drinking with his 21 Jump Street costar, Jonah Hill, when he predicted an unimaginable $35 million opening weekend for the film, prompting Hill to make an outrageous bet.

“I will kiss your tip! I will kiss the tip of your dick through your underwear if we make $35 million,” he told Tatum.

“I will only say that Channing and I say a lot of stupid stuff when we drink together,” Hill is quoted in the article as saying of the bet.

“I haven’t made him do it yet,” Tatum says. “For obvious reasons. That’s a bad bet to lose — it’s not too good to win, either. But definitely the shame of it would be enjoyable.”

“It’s my trump card, for sure,” the actor adds. “He tries not to bring it up at all costs. Unless he did something horrible to me, I don’t know if I could ever cash it in. It would change our relationship forever.”

“It’s a lose-lose for both parties, I feel,” Hill notes. “I’d have to clear it with Jenna There’s all sorts of loopholes that have to be taken into consideration.”

“Maybe, on a drunk night when we’re all being crazy and hopefully, knock on wood, Jump Street 2 works out and people love it, maybe out of the elation of that event in our lives I might call in the bet,” says Tatum. “Or I might make him double or nothing.”
