After playing a male stripper who bared almost everything in Magic Mike, it's no surprise that Channing Tatum was named 2012's Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.

The Hollywood hunk, who beat out other sexy male candidates including Ryan Gosling and Jon Hamm for the title, told People that he was surprised to hear the news.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me."

The humbleness is cute, but between his chiseled body and nakedness in Magic Mike, he must have seen this coming just a little bit.
