Channing Tatum calls himself a 'high functioning alcoholic,' recalls X-rated bet with Jonah Hill about '21 Jump Street'

By Gina DiFalco,

Channing Tatum admits that he’s a pretty heavy drinker in the new issue of GQ magazine, saying that’s what his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, married into.

“I probably drink too much, you know. My wife, that’s what she bought into,” he told the magazine. “I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess. There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”

Tatum went on to say Jonah Hill lost a very crucial bet with him about the success of 21 Jump Street, which they made when they were extremely drunk.

"I will kiss your tip! I will kiss the tip of your d--k through your underwear if we make $35 million,” Hill said to Tatum. The film made $36 million in its opening weekend.

Phil Lord, the co-director of the film, confirmed, “there were many witnesses to this conversation.”

E! Online reports Tatum, who was recently cast as Gambut in the upcoming X: Men film, is pretty proud of the life choices he’s made.

"I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one, and I've pushed the limit almost at every turn and I'm super proud of that,” he said.
