Actor Channing Tatum has been named the sexiest man alive by People magazine.

The “Magic Mike” star was reportedly shocked to hear the news – and he can now boast about it to his wife of four years, actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" Tatum told People. The announcement was made on the "Today" show on Wednesday morning.

"Hangover" star Bradley Cooper took the crown last year.

Other past winners include George Clooney, Ryan Reynolds, Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey, Jude Law, Ben Affleck Brad Pitt, and Mel Gibson.
