Channing Tatum graces the cover of People’s 2012 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, but his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, says Channing picked a not-so-sexy time to tell her about it.
The “American Horror Story” actress and her husband were washing skunk spray off their dogs when he made the announcement.
“He was like, ‘Oh, by the way, I was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive,'” says Jenna. “Is that not the strangest way to tell me this news?”
Jenna says she’s still not sure why Channing chose that moment to tell her. “Maybe it was the fact that it was the last thing something the Sexiest Man Alive would be doing,” she says.
Both former dancers, Channing and Jenna met in 2006 on the set of “Step Up.” They married in 2009.
Mrs. Sexiest Man Alive says she’s proud of Channing’s prestigious honor. “That’s special because it says he’s achieved so much in his career and in his life that makes this award a possibility,” says Jenna. “But he’s always been the Sexiest Man Alive to me.”
