NEW YORK: People magazine on Wednesday declared Hollywood actor Channing Tatum the “sexiest man alive” in 2012.

The muscular 32-year-old former model, Tatum has appeared in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” “21 Jump Street,” and “Magic Mike,” among other films.

Upon hearing he had been picked for the annual honor, Tatum was modest, the gossip magazine said.

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

His wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, told the magazine that her husband sculpts and likes to quote 19th century author and poet Edgar Allan Poe, as well as offer her massages.

Tatum joins a long list of Hollywood heartthrobs who also have also received the “sexiest man” title from the magazine including Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, George Clooney and Matt Damon..
