With the impending release of Magic Mike XXL on July 1st, Channing Tatum did what most movie stars do these days and took to Reddit for an AMA (‘Ask me anything’). AMA’s are pretty much standard for actors these days with a big budget film coming out. It’s free publicity for the movies, though I’m sure the actors are being paid by the studios to do them, and it’s a direct portal to the largest audience on the Internet. Well, Channing Tatum did his AMA yesterday and discussed everything from how he thinks he could beat up a naked Danny Devito to eating Chicken Crispers at Chili’s (which coincidentally is also what I order at Chili’s, so we’re basically already bros). Based on Channing’s AMA responses, the best of which are down below, I think it’s safe to name him an absolute Bro King. Just check out the Q&A below to see what I mean…
You can only bring three things to an island for the rest of your life. What are they and why?
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.
Have you done anything recently that made you think, “I can’t believe I did that?!”
I just went to Iceland and tried to do a small expedition across the glacier and we didn’t make it. We had to be emergency evacuated as there was a white out blizzard which I got to take a poop in. It actually freezes before it hits the ground.
So, if you could have one super power, what would it be, and why?
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.
Would you rather fight a Danny Devito sized John Stamos or a John Stamos sized Danny Devito? You’re both naked.
Can i just fight a Danny devito sized Danny Devito because I think I could take him and I would be on top or I could just use him as a spinner as I’m assuming we’re going to have sex after we fight if we’re naked.
How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
Oh man. Crossbow, straight up, and I’d want an army of ninja chimpanzees that crush people all around me.
Do you enjoy making millions of people sexually frustrated on a daily basis?
If that’s actually true, then yes.
Hello Channing Tatum! This is something I’ve always wanted clarified since it happened…were you ever in Sea-Tac airport at the Chili’s restaurant looking for a beer but IDless? I was the one working there who had to make the difficult decision as to whether we could serve you or not.
It all ended with a picture of you giving each of us a peck on the cheek, myself included. It’s still one of my favorite stories to tell so I hope I wasn’t just duped by a very convincing look-alike.
That absolutely was me. Because I love Chili’s. And no one believed me that i got into an airport without my id. I just wanted a beer and some chicken crisps, and i actually couldn’t get either of them for a while, because i remember you guys didn’t have chicken crisps either! what’s a Chili’s without chicken crisps?
GODDAMMIT CHANNING THEY’RE CALLED ‘CHICKEN CRISPERS‘! NOT ‘CHICKEN CRISPS‘! GET YOUR CHILI’S GAME TOGETHER, BRO.
What’s Jonah Hill like?
that’s a complicated one to answer. Jonah is one of the most fascinatingly dualitied people. He can completely be one of the most intellectually smart and quick people that i’ve ever been around, and then he can come down to my level and just be very kid like and just play without any pretension. I love him. He’s like a brother to me.
Do you 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.
I’ve heard you’re good friends with Shia LaBeouf. What do you think of his recent motivational speech? Did he bring you to tears and inspire you to chase your dreams?
Do you think you can make your own motivational video and one-up him?
I did see it and if I understood it I might be able to reply with my own response but I’m not sure I actually understood it.
Is there anything you can tell us about your upcoming Gambit movie?
Thanks for the AMA
we finally found someone that I really do believe wants to make Gambit, it will be the second standalone character. And i just really think because Gambit is not the most popular or the biggest hero, I think there’s a really unique opportunity. Marvel’s done a lot of great movies that have made a ridiculous amount of money, and it’s always good to figure how to change the form.
Does your penis have a nickname?
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re having a bad day?
Oh man. I love Pinterest. Swear to god. Just to not think about all the shit I have to do or what’s going wrong, I just go and look at Pinterest. Or flipboard.
Pinterest?!?!?!? Really??? Is he just a counter-culture bro or are bros out there using Pinterest now?
Hey Channing, can you share some tips/tricks to stay in shape? (Diet/workouts) Thank you!
Oh man. If you eat it and it makes you happy you probably shouldn’t have it. And if you do it and it sucks you’re probably doing the right thing. But you can’t have one with out the other. A lot of people just work out and don’t actually diet and they wonder why they aren’t getting the results they want, and some people do the exact opposite and wonder the same thing. i really think you have to do both.
Chan, you’ve talked about how you were diagnosed with ADD as a teenager and how you struggled in school because of that. If you had the opportunity to talk to someone in school dealing with similar circumstances, what would you tell them?
You know it’s a really difficult thing to talk to as a broad answer type thing because everyone’s on a spectrum of ADD and I kind of refuse to call it a disability. Some people really need drugs to help them, and others could maybe go on a different route. So it’s really tough. Whatever you do don’t look at it as a disability and hopefully whatever is helping you understand it will show you the great things about how you can use it to your benefit and not just feel like you have some curse upon you.
Good guy Channing Tatum, gives advice and cracks jokes with the masses. Also, I’m pretty confident that I could take a naked Danny Devito, so I guess I’m as jacked as Channing Tatum, huh?
