People magazine’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive” is officially a DILF ya’ll. Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed their first child, daughter Everly, just a few days ago. Congratulations to the new parents.
In anticipation of his impending fatherhood, the 33-year-old actor sat down with Vanity Fair for their July 2013 issue to discuss his father and his parenting skills and why he won’t medicate his own children if they have any learning disabilities. And in a seemingly unrelated random topic, Channing talks about Justin Bieber. Check out his thoughts on the “Boyfriend” singer below, along with photos captured by Bruce Weber at One Gun Ranch in Malibu California. If you’re an animal lover and wanna see Tatum wear chaps and ride horseback, you’ll enjoy the video.
“I don’t think you can prepare. It’s a bit of a freestyle.”
“I worry about Bieber, man. That kid’s wildly talented. I hope he doesn’t fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it’s so hard for someone to be responsible when they’re not asked to be. We’re not asked to do things ourselves. You have someone there with a coffee. ‘You want food? I’ll get you food.’ I put my bag in the trunk yesterday—I can’t drive here—so my driver, great guy, Terry, amazing, I call him T-Bone, I drop my bag in and left the trunk open. And I get around to my door, and I’m like, ‘What the fuck am I doing? That’s not my behavior.’”
“I truly believe some people need medication. I did not. I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie. You become obsessive. Dexedrine, Adderall. It’s like any other drug. It’s like coke, or crystal meth. The more you do, the less it works. For a time, it would work well. Then it worked less and my pain was more. I would go through wild bouts of depression, horrible comedowns. I understand why kids kill themselves. I absolutely do. You feel terrible. You feel soul-less. I’d never do it to my child.”
