Channing Tatum in Details Magazine

Channing Tatum is on the cover of the February 2012 issue of Details magazine, and in the accompanying interview, we get to see an unusual side of the heartthrob. Part of this is due to the circumstances of his afternoon with writer Howie Kahn: the two drank Knob Creek before shooting guns at a Burbank shooting range.

This isn’t Tatum’s first rodeo, so to speak. “When I was a kid,” he said, “we lived on the bayou in Mississippi. My dad would throw a beer can into the water and have me shoot at it. Once, when I was really little, we had this huge double-barrel shotgun, and when I tried it, it literally blew me off the dock.”

Tatum also explained his rationale behind taking roles in films like “The Vow” and “Dear John”: education. “I’m conscious about why I did those parts, those movies. I wanted to learn from Rachel on ‘The Vow.’ I wanted to learn from Lasse Hallstrom on ‘Dear John’ — he did ‘The Cider House Rules’ and ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.’ I didn’t go to acting school, so my knowledge of story, filmmaking and character comes from just being on set and doing it. I know I’m not the best actor, but I hope my characters are getting better.”
