The 10 Best Things Channing Tatum Said at His Reddit AMA (Including The Name of His Penis)

The 10 Best Things Channing Tatum Said at His Reddit AMA (Including The Name of His Penis)

So Channing Tatum had  Reddit AMA and it was as amazing as you would expect. Tatum offered this intro before going into discussion of anything and everything, from the name of his penis to his perfect sandwich. 

What’s up, reddit. Chan here. With the premiere of Magic Mike XXL coming up in a few weeks, I thought I’d expose myself… to your questions. For the next hour, ask away!

Also, I’m offering you all the chance to come to the MMXXL premiere with me to support an awesome cause—you’ll ride with me to the premiere, walk the red carpet, see the movie and then check out the after-party. Enter to win here: http://omaze.com/magic

Every entry goes to benefit the Runa Foundation, which works to preserve and support Amazonian farming communities. I’ve had an amazing experience working with them and learning about the incredible work they’re doing to help local people and conserve the rainforest. Please join me in supporting their work and enter to come hang at the premiere! Victoria’s helping me get started. 


Look, I could sit here and tell you how great the cause is, and if that’s interesting at all there’s information about it and you can go find that. But to be honest, I can promise you that these premieres can be super-lame, but the Magic Mike premiere will be the most fun you will have at one of these things. It’s pretty much all of the cast how we hung out on the movie, and we’re all really good friends, and there will be a ginormous stripshow after the premiere. If you’re into that. 

So please enter before my Omaze ends on Friday. http://omaze.com/magic

Thank you for your questions. And thank you also to the farting robot. If that makes sense for you at all.

Here’s our 10 choice comments from the AMA. Check out the whole thing here.

If he could have one superpower, what would it be? “I wish that I could make anyone at any point just happen to be naked. Not for the reasons that everyone thinks. Because people get really nice when they get naked. Like okay, I can’t be an asshole. People aren’t assholes when they get naked (for the most part). They are thinking about what they look like. Shitty answer, I tried to do something funny and it didn’t work.”

Does he ever get lost looking into Matt Bomer’s eyes? “absofuckinglutely. no matter if you’re a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in matt bomer’s eyes. I don’t know what they are made of outside of dreams and rainbows and amazingness but it truly doesn’t matter. And when he sings. It’s like god gave with both hands and then grew a third hand and graced him with more. he’s crazy talented.”

How long did that infamous leaked “hahahahaha” email to Sony take to write? “I’m sure exactly how long. I hit the h and a for a long time before I realized I could copy and paste. I’m not the most tech savvy person around but it did become a lot easier and faster.”

What are the components of a perfect sandwich? “k get ready: it’s very complicated. bread, white. peanut butter, not crunchy, creamy. grape jelly, double portion, more than you think should actually fit on a piece of white bread. bread. and then some cheetos shoved in there, and then you’re good to go.”

What are the three things he’d bring to an island if forced to spend the rest of his life there? “How about a magical seashell that’s always filled with bourbon. And I would like a magical palm tree that had a lot of shade with instead of coconuts there’s just peanut butter jelly sandwiches with cheetos underneath. And my wife that is always happy and possibly naked.”

What was up with “Jupiter Ascending”? “Great question. I have the same one to myself.”

How would he survive the zombie apocalypse? “Oh man. Crossbow, straight up, and I’d want an army of ninja chimpanzees that crush people all around me. Or I would just go to Sandra Bullock’s house as I’m sure she has all that stuff because she’s dope and kick-ass.”

Fuck, Marry, Kill: Gilbert Gottfried, Danny Devito and Ray Romano? “I’d fuck Danny Devito, as I was saying earlier it could be fun. I’d marry Ray Romano, because I think he has a pretty solid perspective on marriage. I don’t know who would be the male or female, you figure it out. And I like Gilbert Gottfried but I wouldn’t mind killing him.”

What does he do in his free time? “I have a little 2 year old baby girl and free time is sparse and few an far between and any time that i get is spent with her and my wife. In between all the danny Devito sex and fight sessions.”

What’s the name of his penis? Drumroll…. “Gilbert.”
