Jonah Hill Licks Channing Tatum's 'Sexiest Man' Cover & Makes Us Converts (PHOTO)


jonah hill channing tatumDon't think Channing Tatum should have been named People's Sexiest Man Alive? Take it up with Jonah Hill. Hill, who starred with Tatum in 21 Jump Street, is so pleased with the mag's Sexiest Man decision that he posted a photo of himself (practically) licking the cover, along with the message: "@channingtatum you've always been the sexiest man alive to me! (Congrats pal!)."

I definitely don't think Channing Tatum is the sexiest man alive (I know, controversial), but for some reason, having Jonah Hill endorse him makes me kind of get People's decision.

I never thought Channing Tatum was hot. Still don't, to be honest. Although, full disclosure, if I met him, it might be another story. (Never thought Brad Pitt was hot until he walked by me in his Ocean's 11 clothing.) Up until fairly recently, I actually thought his name was Tatum Channing. And I often got him confused with Chris Hemsworth. Or was it Liam Hemsworth? I don't know. Point is, I really didn't think much of him at all.

But then I saw 21 Jump Street. And I realized: Dude is actually pretty funny. That scene where he and Jonah Hill go into a bathroom stall and finger each other's throats to try to make themselves vomit? Fantastic. And then I learned he was a dancer, also. (Typically, I'm five years behind the times.) I was like, "Ohhhh, this guy isn't just some beefcake with panty-peeling abs. He, like, legitimately has some talents."

Seeing Jonah's tweet reminded me of this. Of all the great things Tatum Channing has brought our country, the great things he's brought American cinema. He may not be Ryan Gosling when it comes to looks/brains/acting skills/singing or sense of humor. But he's really funny when he sticks his fingers down Jonah Hill's throat.

Who do you think is the Sexiest Man Alive?

For me, the sexiest man alive is my DH. Just hanging a shirt in his closet or getting a random text from him turns my stomach into a butterfly trampoline. LOL. But if I had to choose a celebrity, it would be a toss-up between Wentworth Miller and Bruce Willis. For real. I find them equally sexy. But I would never have turned down an offer from the likes of Channing Tatum in my single days, let me tell you.

I just don't get why this site is hating on People picking Channing Tatum as itsSexiest Man Alive.  He is definitely attractive, and seems to be having a banner year in his career--all good reasons to pick him.  While I may not have found picks in the past particularly attractive (and, I totally don't get the Ryan Gosling or Jude Law thing), I certainly would not act confused about the pick.  I mean, no offense to Jonah Hill, but it's not like People picked Jonah Hill.  I personally think Channing Tatum deserves this years' honor--no need for justifications--but wouldn't hate on People for picking another attractive actor who is having a very good professional year.  Let's just give the man some props and congratulations!

I don't get why it's controversial. The man has a GORGEOUS body, he can dance his ass off and is an genuninely sweet guy. Have you seen interviews or vids of him and his wife?! He is so in love and such a good husband, the man is the total package. I don't get why people compare him to Ryan Gosling when it comes to intelligence, Channing is also smart, he just plays beefcake roles and people seem to forget he isn't the roles he plays. Hmmm, maybe he his a better actor than people think? lol

I'm with tuffymama, except with my own FDH! lol, I find him to be the sexiest.There's something about Channing Tatums' hysterical laugh in 21 Jump Street that just creeped me out (when they were high on that stuff & talking to the coach). Idk, but I never found him to be a butter melter to me. My fiancee on the other hand, gets my butter melting in subzero degree weather!
