New York, NY -- Channing Tatum was doing a very unsexy thing when he told his wife he'd been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. He was in the bathrub washing their dogs who'd been sprayed by a skunk. Tatum's reaction to the honor? He said "Y'all are messing with me." His wife understands why he was picked. Aside from the body he showed off in "Magic Mike," he and his wife have been married three years and he still leaves love notes around the house.
