Channing Tatum Admits He's a High Functioning Alcoholic in 'GQ'

Channing Tatum displays his huge biceps on the cover of GQ Magazine’s June 2014 issue, on newsstands May 27.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On alcohol: “I probably drink too much, you know. 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. There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”

On having an imaginary friend: “His name was Boy. I think I just lived in an imaginary world. I was always playing war in the woods, people are chasing me… I wasn’t doing it because I was desperate for friends. I had friends.”

On Gambit: “the only superhero I really followed.… He was the most real to me: smoking, drinking, women-loving, thief. He just looked cool to me. I’ve always loved him. And obviously he’s Cajun.”
