Channing Tatum decided to channel his inner-Magic-Mike and bless all of our timelines with a selfie leaving very little to the imagination, and naturally, the reactions were priceless. Let’s get into it.
Channing Tatum sure knows a thing or two about how to promote an upcoming movie because pretty sure he shared one photo that will have people lining up outside the theaters.
But before I continue any further, I should warn you that upon laying your eyes on said ‘promo’ photo, side effects may include uncontrollable drooling, unusual sweating as well as dilation of your pupils, and perhaps even maybe hitting your head on your phone or computer screen to get a closer look.
Now that we’ve got that squared away, Channing interrupted his own regularly scheduled childrens’ book programming to post this thirst trap photo to his Instagram stories while on the set of his upcoming film the Lost City of D… and let’s just say, after this pic, I think a lot of us have more of an idea of what that ‘D’ in the title might actually stand for.
While casually hanging out in his makeup trailer as his makeup artist was hard at work, Channing took a second to pose in the nude for the selfie, writing, “You know when you in the makeup trailer a**hole naked holding a towel over your junk, you about to do some sh*t on set that you gonna have to prepare ya mama for before she sees the movie.” We’re gonna need to prepare a WHOLE lot more people than mama Tatum because the world truly was not ready for this one.
Aside from an alleged towel covering his nether region, Channing was courteous enough to include a monkey emoji, and…. we’ve got questions: How was that makeup artist able to remain calm? Was he applying makeup to ALL of Channing’s body? Why’d Channing had to flex all hard on us like that?
No, really though, Channing literally had to flex HARD for this photo as he shamelessly admitted, “And yes I’m flexing so hard I got a cramp.” Needless to say, this post had Twitter pulling through with some hilarious reactions to Channing’s photo.
One user took note of Channing’s wide range of recent accomplishments, saying, “A true king, releasing both a children’s self-esteem book dedicated to his daughter AND a fire nude selfie in the same month.
Grateful for Channing Tatum, don’t know what we did to deserve him.” I can’t…. Others, like this person, envied Channing’s makeup artist, writing, “I would like to apply for this makeup job… right away.” You guys, I literally CANNOT with these tweets!
And then there were some, like this user, who was a little thrown off by Channing’s use of language when describing his bare bod, saying, “I’m going to be haunted by the fact that Channing Tatum described being fully nude as ‘a**hole naked.’”
While it’s not completely out of the ordinary for Channing to star in a movie without at least one article of clothing, he did admit to Kelly Clarkson that his only motivation for staying in shape is the movie roles he’s chosen to play.
He said, “As someone who works out for a job, I promise you I would not look like this unless I had to be naked in most of my movies,” and joked, “At some point I have to get better at acting so I don’t have to be naked in all of them.”
Well, Channing, I think I speak for the majority of us when I say that you do NOT, by ANY means, need to get “better” at acting… just keep on flexing for the world to see! In the words of the world’s most famous momager, “you’re doing great sweetie.”
On that note, Lil Nas X’s ‘parts’ were kinda almost put on display, so stay over here for all the details on his recent SNL wardrobe malfunction. And after you’ve rehydrated, be sure to let me know all your thoughts on Channing’s latest selfie right down here in the comments.
