A shirtless and oiled-up Channing Tatum covers OUT magazine, where he wrestles a pretty male model and stares lustily into the camera. Under them reads the caption, “Romance! OUT photographer Todd Oldham offers sizzling Valentine’s Day twosomes and threesomes.”
Says E! Online:
“Sizzling is right! In an inside photo spread, a sweaty Tatum wears only denim short-shorts while climbing on top of the other model, who’s only wearing underwear briefs and a sleeveless tee (holy TBT hotness!).”
But PSYCH! The year was 2002, when young Channing was still a model, stripper, and Hollywood up-and-comer, eager for any kind of exposure. Any kind at all. He’s not wrestling homos on magazine covers anymore. And that, my friends, is what’s known in the industry as CLICKBAIT. Ha. But it’s worth it to see the PYT looking so fresh and adorable, and it’s nice that he’s always been so gay-friendly.
