Channing Tatum Talks Funfetti Obsession, Ridiculous Jonah Hill Bet + More in GQ
Channing Tatum is an open book in the June 2014 issue of GQ magazine. Not only does the ’22 Jump Street’ hunk look smoking hot in a baby blue button-down, but he went and revealed some seriously awesome tidbits — like the fact that he’s obsessed with Funfetti cake.
“I just love cake,” Tatum tells the magazine. “Confetti cake, to be specific. It has little colored candies inside the cake, and then you get the confetti icing, which is really hard to find sometimes.”
But not just any old confetti frosting — Channing Tatum’s icing has to be specific.
“It’s really hard to explain to people, because it’s not icing with sprinkles on top,” he explains. “It’s icing that actually has candies inside of it. It’s Funfetti icing … It’s a beautiful mix. It is an angel sent from heaven.”
We feel you, Chan.
Among the other topics covered in the interview were Tatum’s self-proclaimed “high functioning” alcoholism (“I equate [drinking] to creativity, and I definitely equate it to a good time”), his invisible childhood friend (“‘Don’t sit here,’ Tatum remembers saying as a kid, ‘Boy’s sitting here!’”) and the most ridiculous bet he made with his ‘Jump’ co-star and good friend Jonah Hill.
“I will kiss your tip! I will kiss the tip of your d— through your underwear if we make $35 million [for the first movie],” Tatum recalled Hill betting. But when they did, Tatum didn’t take him up on the offer — and still hasn’t do this day. (Yeah, we can imagine that would be pretty awkward.)
“I haven’t made him do it yet. For obvious reasons. That’s a bad bet to lose — it’s not too good to win, either. But definitely the shame of it would be enjoyable. It’s my trump card, for sure,” Tatum explained. “He tries not to bring it up at all costs. Unless he did something horrible to me, I don’t know if I could ever cash it in. It would change our relationship forever.”
But would he ever reconsider?
“Maybe on a drunk night when we’re all being crazy and hopefully, knock on wood, ‘Jump Street 2′ works out and people love it, maybe out of the elation of that event in our lives I might call in the bet,” Tatum ponders. “Or I might make him double or nothing.”
