Actor Channing Tatum dubbed People's sexiest man alive


NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Actor Channing Tatum, who set female hearts fluttering in the summer movie hit Magic Mike, was named the sexiest man alive by People magazine on Wednesday.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me," Tatum told the magazine after hearing the news.

The 32-year-old actor, who is married to actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is training to play an Olympic athlete in his upcoming film Foxcatcher.

The couple, who have been married since 2009, are ready to start a family, according to People.
