Free-wheeling Channing Tatum Is a High-Functioning Alcoholic

In the new issue of GQ, Channing Tatum — who's promoting new movies 22 Jump Street and Foxcatcher — says that he's been drankin', he's been drankin'.

Tatum puts it this way:

"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."

He's also Team Cake:


"I just love cake. 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. It's icing that actually has candies inside of it. It's Funfetti icing. It's a beautiful mix. It is an angel sent from heaven."

Booze and cake. Yes. YES. We understand each other, Chan. Even though he enjoys being "fat and happy," he'll probably be ripped again before long — Magic Mike 2 is a real thing that is happening.
