by at .  Updated at . Comments

Channing Tatum covered the gay lifestyle magazine OUT in 2012, the year in which Magic Mike made the hunk one of the biggest movie stars on the planet.

Tatum also covered the same publication in 2002, before he was famous at all. Many things changed in the ensuing decade, but his good looks weren't among them.

Sporting no shirt and a pair of short shorts, the then-22-year-old model is seen wrestling with another guy wearing nothing but a tank top and tighty whities.

Check out the racy cover and inset shots in the gallery below:

Channing Tatum covers OUT Magazine in 2002. The vintage edition of the gay lifestyle magazine proves he was always a hunk.

The spread was for the publication's Valentine's Day issue.

Channing Tatum fans know he modeled for brands like Abercrombie & Fitch and Armani, so shoots like this weren't out of the ordinary for the aspiring actor.

He was also an exotic dancer, in fact ... so yeah. Standard.

"I never enjoyed the taking-clothes-off part," he told OUT.

"You are on a stage with people yelling at you, and you feel you’re a rock star, but you’re nothing ... you’re just a guy taking off his clothes, looking like a fool in a stupid outfit."

Clearly it paid off for him at least - to say the least.

Channing, who is married and has a young daughter with Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is in the prime of what is sure to be an extremely lucrative career.

Did we mention he looks good shirtless?
