"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" the 32-year-old actor tells People of hearing the news. "I told Jenna [Tatum’s wife of three years is actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum] after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked. She was like, 'What?'"
"People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is," says Dewan-Tatum, 31, who’s now taken to calling him the Sexiest Man Alive at home. "He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."
With no kids on the horizon just yet, the 195-pound Tatum is currently focused on Olympic training. No, he won’t actually be participating in the next Olympics, but will be playing an Olympic athlete on the big screen in 2013’s “Foxcatcher.” "I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can't move well and I like to move," he says. "When I'm not training, I get really round and soft."
Some are upset that Ryan Gosling was snubbed again this year:
