I am obsessed with Channing Tatum right now. He’s all I think about. I try to figure him out. Why do I love him? Is it his ability to own a comedic role as effortlessly as he does a dramatic part? Is it his ROCKIN BOD? Is it that he can dance and has the effortless grace of a modern day Gene Kelly? Is it that he’s just slightly skewered so he’s not TOO handsome? Because I like to look at his almost lantern jaw & adorable open-car-door ears & think about how approachable his beauty is. I know part of why I love him is because he’s so good. I’ve developed a lot of celebrity man crushes & discovered they’re actually terrible people (Mark Wahlberg) or have done questionable, angry things in the past (Michael Fassbender, Christian Bale), but ChanChan is gentle, and kind. He does adorable things with his wife, like choreograph dances with her that they perform at award show after parties, and get pedicures with her on her birthday because he told her he’ll do anything she wants on her birthday. I bet he’s a great dad. I bet he’s an awesome son. I bet he keeps in touch with distant cousins and the girl he brought to junior prom. He also loves men, and talks lustfully about his Magic Mike co-stars and how dreamy they are and how much he wants to hold them in his beefy arms. He’s just wonderful, and beautiful, and he fills my heart with joy. I want to beat his dick off with both hands.
Look at these beautiful photos Annie Leibovitz and Norman Jean Roy took of C-Tates! Leibovitz perfectly captured his Gene Kelly, throwback, dancer grace for the Vanity Fair cover story, while Roy photographed him as the perfect beefcake man-pinup in a stunning spread for GQ UK.
You know who else is lovely? Chris Pratt. Let’s go ahead and look at him too while we’re looking at ChanChan, since they’re both similar in talent & brawn.
