It seems Channing Tatum, widely acknowledged as the sexiest man alive, is every women’s crush these days. But who did the heartthrob pine for as a kid? Tatum in a new interview that Alyssa Milano was his childhood crush.
The 33-year-old tells Elle “She was it, man.” But the White House Down actor would still get giddy if they crossed paths today “I’d love to run into her. I’m pretty sure I’d geek out. Isn’t she married?” Indeed she is, and to Hollywood agent David Bugliari. Together they have a son, Milo, who will soon be 2.
Tatum is a father as well, having welcomed daughter Everly with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on May 30. Dewan is Tatum’s current crush, telling Elle that “my sculptures look like my wife.” The actor sculpts in his spare time and seems to use his wife as inspiration.
Someone should probably let Tatum know about Milano’s new Maxim cover. The 40-year-old still looks great in a pair of teeny white shorts and a buttoned down flannel. Milano grew up on screen, acting on the series Who’s the Boss. So did being adored by young boys around the world inflate young Alyssa’s ego? She tells Maxim “”It wasn’t weird, because I didn’t know any different.”
Milano’s working again as she currently stars in ABC’s Mistresses.
