    Default Channing Tatum says he is a 'high- functioning alcoholic'

    'I drink too much': Channing Tatum brands himself a 'high-functioning alcoholic' as he opens up about his wild streak

    By JENNIFER PEARSON
    PUBLISHED: 17:28, 20 May 2014 | UPDATED: 21:48, 20 May 2014


    Channing Tatum didn't earn the nickname 'Chanimal' for nothing.
    The 34-year-old heartthrob revealed he's still a wild and crazy guy in the June 2014 issue of GQ.
    Channing, who is pictured taking a flying leap over a pool in the glossy magazine spread, took a similar leap in admitting he's a 'high-functioning alcoholic' who equates drinking 'to having a good time.'

    Flying leap: Channing Tatum took a flying leap when he revealed to GQ's June issue that he likes to party and that he's 'probably a pretty high-functioning... alcoholic'


    The Magic Mike star indicates that marriage to his longtime sweetheart Jenna Dewan hasn't changed his wild ways.
    Channing told GQ: '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 said of how he feels when he drinks.

    But Channing indicated that he did cut back on the partying after Jenna gave birth to daughter Everly last year in May, and he pledges not to drink during the four months of filming that's required on the Magic Mike sequel.
    'Then, at the end of that movie, it's go time,' he told GQ.

    Party animal: Channing admitted he loves living wild and that's what his wife Jenna 'bought into'


    Channing told GQ: 'I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one, and I've pushed the limit almost at every turn. I'm super proud of that.'
    The 6 ft 1 in hunk is pictured looking devilishly handsome on the cover, wearing a light blue shirt with short sleeves to show off his tanned and brawny biceps.
    The photo spread features a picture of Channing taking a flying leap over the pool to catch a frisbee at what appears to the home he shares with actress wife Jenna Dewan.
    But he makes a point to display his domestic side while frying eggs in the couple's cosy kitchen.

    Channing's partying hasn't seemed to affect his strong bond with Jenna, whom he wed in 2009.

    The actor jumped into parenthood with the same gusto, telling the magazing: 'We had sort of a crazy, harebrained idea to try and have a kid, and it happened the first time, basically. I don't think we thought it all the way through.'
    That doubt faded as soon as the couple's daughter Everly was born on May 31, 2013 in London.

    That's the spirit: Who can forget Channing tossing the traditional Mardi Gras bead necklaces to revelers below

    'We were happy as hell about it,' Channing told GQ.
    When Tatum was a boy, his mother nicknamed him 'Chanimal' because he was such a firecracker.
    'I would make a mess out of anything and climb anything. I feel really bad, now that I have a child and I know how hard it is,' Channing said.

    'I've asked her since then, "Was I a bad kid?" She just gets this look on her face. "You weren't bad, you were just really... busy."'
    Last year alone, Channing completed four films back-to-back - White House Down, Jupiter Ascending, 22 Jump Street and Foxcatcher that just premiered at Cannes Film Festival - AND he became a dad.
    So nothing seems to have changed much.

    That may explain the carb face and wooden plank acting if he is this sloshed all the time....

    He's a fugly meathead dude bro. Pretty much the antithesis of what I find attractive in a man.

    He didn't just hit the wall, he shagged and murdered it. He's never looked this bad before. Even photoshop isn't helping.

    Yay! Women who don't see the appeal of Channing Tatum!

    I don't get how people find him attractive. Carb face is a great description.

    I like his body when he is in shape, and the way he moves it!! Helps in over looking the carb face, or,...there is always a paper bag.

    I'm sure his daughter will love reading this story one day since her father will be dead from liver failure.

    Isn't "high functioning" only in the mind of the alcoholic that actually believes they are?

    He looks like he's got cotton wool instead of a brain between his ears, what a moron he is.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
