Channing Tatum says he's a high-functioning alcoholic, but if he makes a habit of engaging in the sort of antics he described to GQ recently, it may be time to drop the "high-functioning" part of the description.

While filming the 2006 movie A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Channing hung out with Shia LaBeouf and the two young actors tested each other's mettle with a night of escalating dares and serious boozing:

"We were drinking," Channing's tale begins (we're guessing a lot of his stories start that way). "I think our initial thing was, 'Alright let's go out and get in a fight!' This was just young dumb, idiot actors thinking that's what's going to bond us."

We're with you on the "dumb" part Channing. But hold on. While going out with the intention of starting fight is certainly pretty stupid, things get exponentially dumber from there:

Between Channing Tatum's admission of alcoholism and a never-ending stream of glassy-eyed Lindsay Lohan party photos emerging from the actress' time in London, we thought it would be a good time to run down a list of celebs who have struggled with excessive drinking.

Some of the stars on this list consider themselves alcoholics, but have sobered up and now speak openly about their years of heavy boozing as a cautionary tale.

Others are still hitting the bottle and thus tend to be more secretive about their imbibing ... well except LiLo. Who else falls into each category? Let's take a look.

Hollywood and hooch have a long history together, dating back to Humphrey Bogart sipping real bourbon while shooting barroom scenes, reportedly never seeming to mind if he had to do 15 takes. 

But as times have changed, so have American attitudes toward excessive drinking.

We now know that for every amusing anecdote about a sloshed celeb stumbling down the red carpet, there's a far more grim story such as Derek Whibley's near-death experience.

While drinking nearly killed Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 fame, other celebs seem perfectly capable of hitting the bottle without doing any serious damage to their careers.

Take Channing Tatum, for example.

The Magic Mike heartthrob's career is taking off like never before and anyone with eyes can see he's in peak physical condition, so it may surprise some fans to hear Channing describe himself as a "high-functioning alcoholic."

"I probably drink too much, you know," Tatum said in a recent interview with GQ. "My wife, that's what she bought into. I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say alcoholic."

Tatum, who has been cast as Gambit in the upcoming X-Men films goes on to detail the reasons why he loves the sauce:

Channing Tatum will not appear in the upcoming X Men: Days of Future Past, but you can expect to see the Magic Mike heartthrob heavily featured in sequels to the highly-anticipated film.

Marvel Studios announced today that Tatum will play card-slinging mutant Gambit in future X-Men films.

There has been speculation that Tatum will also star in several solo vehicles, a la Hugh Jackman's Wolverine movies, but that has yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Tatum has rumored to be the likely choice for the fan-favorite character for several months and he spoke of his desire to land the role in a recent interview with MTV:

There once was a time when future heart throbs were a little dorky, would-be supermodels a tad awkward, and even the Kardashians were just regular kids.

Heck, even Justin Bieber was a kid once ... instead of a punk a-- kid.

Ever wonder what your favorite stars (and Kim Kardashian for that matter) looked like long before they became the people that dominated your Facebook feed?

Wonder no longer, THGers. We've got you covered and then some!

Some aged better than others, and some certainly looked more like their adult selves from a very early stage, but all were pretty darn adorable.

Grab your girlfriends and get ready to spend the night with Channing Tatum, ladies!

Magic Mike XXL, the Magic Mike sequel we've all been waiting for, is coming on July 3, 2015. Talk about your Independence Day fireworks!

The last we saw from movie co-writer Channing Tatum, he was calling himself "fappy" (fat and happy) on Ellen and gushing about his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and their baby girl. 

Looks like he'll be hitting the weight room again to beef up for Magic Mike XXL​. In no time at all, he'll look like this again.

Tatum confirmed as early as last June that the sequel was in the works saying it would be a "road trip movie."

"It will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be."

Conan O'Brien hosted the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night and he made clear from the start that the show wouldn't be some stodgy Oscars-style formal affair.

  • Conan the Host
  • Chan the Man

Instead of cueing up the orchestra to let winners know their speeches were going on too long, O'Brien used a more NSFW method of letting celebs know when its time to "wrap it up."

Conan promised to flash a "dick pic" on the teleprompter to get long-winded speakers off stage and he delivered on his threat...much to the chagrin of Channing Tatum.

Channing was on stage to accept the annual Trailblazer Award (whatever that is) and as he expressed heartfelt gratitude to his fans, the Magic Mike star suddenly stopped his speech dead and reported:

"I'm getting the dick pic, guys. I got the dick pic. I gotta go."

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:

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.

There are some noteworthy celebrity sex tapes out there, to be sure. Just not a whole lot that you'd actually want to ... you know, sit down and watch.

It's not altogether surprising that many stars of our most notorious celebrity sex tapes are predominantly (or only) famous for those very sex tapes.

If you have a lot else going for you, you don't need to ... you know.

Anyway, this being April Fools Day, there's a lot of BS out there, from Ariana Grande nude hoaxes to unsubstantiated pregnancies, breakups and marriages.

You may read some crazy stuff today, but very little of it is real.

That shouldn't stop you from dreaming, however. Here are 13 celebrity sex tapes you only wish would mysteriously leak on the Internet one sexy day ...
