The six craziest things we learned about Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum's hilarious antics are one of the many reasons we love him, and he recently gave a no-holds-barred interview to GQ that showed us just how ridiculous he can get. In his June cover story, there are more crazy stories than we can count, including his outrageous bet about 21 Jump Street.
After Channing said they'd make $35 million in the first weekend, his co-star Jonah Hill said, "I will kiss the tip of your d**k through your underwear if we make $35 million." Yes, you read that right - and the story gets even crazier from there. In a tamer revelation, Channing also opened up about his extreme love for Funfetti cake and his invisible childhood friend named Boy.
Here are the six craziest things we learned about Channing from his GQ interview.
1. He and Jonah Hill made a crazy bet about 21 Jump Street.
The original bet that Jonah made with Channing if 21 Jump Street made $35 million at the box office: "I will kiss your tip! I will kiss the tip of your d*ck through your underwear if we make $35 million."
Jonah's reaction after they did make more than $35 million: "I will only say that Channing and I say a lot of stupid stuff when we drink together."
Channing: "I haven't made him do it yet. 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. 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."
Jonah: "It's a lose-lose for both parties, I feel. I'd have to clear it with Jenna. There's all sorts of loopholes that have to be taken into consideration."
Channing: "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. Or I might make him double or nothing."
Jonah: "I might have to double down, because there's no way I'm doing what I said I was going to do."
2. He really, really loves Funfetti cake.
"I have an inner fat kid in me. I just love cake. Confetti cake, to be specific. It has little coloured 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. 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. It is an angel sent from heaven."
3. He had an invisible friend as a kid.
"His name was Boy [and at dinner I'd say], 'Don't sit here - Boy's sitting here!' I would make a plate for him and all that. Crazy behaviour. I think I just lived in an imaginary world. I was always playing war in the woods, people are chasing me. I wasn't doing it because I was desperate for friends. I had friends."
4. He wants to make his own dishes to give as gifts.
"'I've always wanted to paint my own bowls and dishes and shit. I want to eventually be able to make my own plates and stuff, so I can stop having to worry about what to buy people as gifts. I can just make them something, and it will be unbelievably annoying that they have to keep it forever. 'You're not using my plates?'"
5. He calls himself a "high-functioning" alcoholic.
"I probably drink too much, you know. 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."
6. He had a crazy deleted scene in This Is the End.
"I mean, when can I say I've drank the blood of James Franco? Why wouldn't I go and do that?"
