Channing Tatum Says He’s a ‘High-Functioning’ Alcoholic

Now I want to drink a bar dry with Channing Tatum. In a GQ profile, Tatum told writer Chris Heath that he’s kindasorta a “high-functioning alcoholic.” How badly do you want to party with him now?

Back in Los Angeles, he took one lesson his wife got for him, but the rest has been instinct. He likes to sculpt at night, with a bottle of wine or a glass of bourbon. “I probably drink too much, you know,” he says. “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.” He likes how it slows down his mind. “There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.” Still, he says, nothing makes you cut back like having a baby, and he’ll not drink for four months when they make the Magic Mike sequel. “Then, at the end of that movie,” he says, “it’s go time.”

Clearly he’s saying this in the same type of way every college kid has ever said “I’m an alcoholic.” Booze isn’t a problem in his life as of this moment. Good for him! That’s how it should be.

Now Imagine Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey at an open bar together. Shots, shots, shots, shots…
