Channing Tatum in Dolce&Gabana

Posted on February 01, 2013

It’s boy o’clock, kittens.


Channing Tatum attends the premiere of ‘Side Effects’ in New York City in Dolce&Gabbana.

Cue the “It’s for a role” queens, but we don’t think that’s the best haircut for him. But who knows? Maybe this time, it’s for a role.

Anyway, let’s all once again sigh over his impeccable style. A meathead like him could rest on “hot” for a good number of years, but unlike a lot of male stars of his type and age, he regularly puts the effort in. That’s going to really serve him well as he ages out of the types of roles he’s getting now. Wrinkles may form and hair fall out, but style don’t crack, darlings. He’s doing it right.

But his loose tie is making our eyelids twitch, we have to admit.

  • The suit is great and he’s still hot, but he looks like he’s been roiding. The face is fuller and the neck is thicker. I’m not saying I’d cast him out of my bed.

    • J. Preposterice

      I just don’t get the thing with guys with heads and necks the same size.  It weirds me out.  They remind me of Weebles.

      • Julie Fountain

        I know, right? I do not see the Channing Tatum appeal because I can never see anything but that neck/head column and this haircut makes it worse.  I had to scroll past those pics quickly!

        • MilaXX

          Let me come sit beside you. I see no hotness. Just a thick neck, puffy face & squinty eyes. He seems like a nice guy, but sexy? Nah.

          •  Yep.  All I see is “thumbhead”.

          • I’m glad it’s not just me! Do not get it at ALL.

          • drdirection

            those were my exact thoughts

          • Violina23

            ITA, he does nothing for me…  I couldn’t quite pin why, but I think you’re right…

        • conniemd

           Ditto to all of the above. Too much like a professional wrestler.

      • calimon

        I quickly scrolled past the thumbnail, but then reconsidered only to find these kind of comments that relate to my taste & reaction.

    • MalCo09

      From the neck up he looks like someone drew a picture of Channing Tatum on their thumb.  Everything below the neck is smokin’ hot.

      • That was mean, but I admit I LOLd.

      •  Hahaha hilarious. That boy should NOT shave his head.



      • ChiliP

        “From the neck up he looks like someone drew a picture of Channing Tatum on their thumb”

        OMG, this comment is hilarious. And disturbingly accute since I put my thumb over his face in first picture and his head/neck was the exact same size. I’m dying with laughter.

        ETA: Not trying to body snark, as I generally think Channing is an attractive guy. But seriously, put your thumb tot he monitor over the first picture- thumb head.

      • barbarienne

         I was thinking you could put his head into a gun and fire it, but your comparison is way funnier!

      • JosephLamour

        I just openly cackled. My room mate came in to tell me I was laughing too loud.

      • enonymous

        Fully agree. Still hot though!

  • RebeccaKW

    If that’s for a role, I hope they are re-thinking the decision.  Nice to see a man in dress shoes instead of scuffed boots.

  • I know they are not faves for TLo, but I find these shiny suits incredibly sexy, specially in guys with Channing’s body. And he can get away with the hair too.

    • miagain

      I think they look especially shiny in the photog’s lights… I bet in better light this is one glorious suit.

    • mellorcr

      I must disagree.  These suits look like they are made of tarred roofing underlayment.  Or greasy felt.

    • MissAmynae

      I agree on your shiny suit opinion, as long as its not on super-skinnies. The shiny brings out the muscular structure (yum!) and shape of his body in ways a matte suit would not. It helps that its beautifully fitted. Its one of those “you need to have the body to fill it out” things. If only Jeremy Renner would wear this kind of shiny, instead of the metallic he seems to covet lately.  

  • That’s pretty.

  • Props for style, but he’s looking uncomfortably later stage Travolta-esque.

  • WhiteOprah

    I’ve heard it said that well-tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men.  Yummy!  

  • Uh he should NOT buzz his head. It makes him look even more meathead-y. 

  • DinaSews

    I am now of the opinion that a new pose for male stars should be to turn around and hoist up their jacket. A sort of covered moon, if you will.  I would desperately love to see that view here!

    • MissAmynae

      oh my stars *fans herself* that would be delightful.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Oh, I want to do reallllly dirty things to, with and on that man.  He looks spectacular.  And yes, it *is* for a role. 

  • His face says “Brutus”. His balding pate says “Lev”. And his impeccably fitted suit says “Damien”. So I guess it kinda all works. You win again Channing.

  • nannypoo

    If the role is to play a bullet then this is the perfect haircut.

    • IAmJ

       HA! Funniest thing I read all day.

      • margaret meyers

        That neckreally limits his look.

  • He will be bald in a couple of years!!! We don’t like that! :S

  • Thanks TLo!  Love the Chan Porn.  🙂

  • Jangle57

    From the neck down, he looks great!  From the neck up, all I see is a Sontaran.  (Dr Who fans will know what of I speak….)

  • anotherkate

    I just like him. So stylish, so obviously sexy, so sweetly in love with his wife. As for the tie, I have a feeling that “meathead” comes with “big neck,” so I don’t begrudge him a little breathing room. And I want to take a photo of the cut of those pants and show it to every man in my life as an example of how to do it right.

  • MilaXX

    Da-yum! That head is jacked. If it’s not for a role, it’s time to go full on Mr. Clean.  Otherwise he looks great.

  • Hell Yes, I Would!

    I don’t get the appeal of Channing. And that hair is awful. Maybe he’s just balding and trying to go (un)gracefully.

    • What would you have him do? 

      As a semi-balding guy myself, it’s not like I have a ton of options. I have a lot of cowlicks, so even if I had a full head of hair, it tends to stick out at odd angles. I have buzzed my hair since I was in my early 20s, simply because it looks better and is low maintenance. Were I to grow it out, it would make the receding hairline that much more noticeable. 

      If he had a combover or was wearing a toupee, then I might understand the “(un)graceful” comment. But it’s just a buzzcut, not implants. Besides, I rather find it hot. Where you see (un)graceful, I see masculine and commanding. (I am such a sucker for a thick-necked guy with a buzzed head.)

      Channing, my body is ready.

      • Hell Yes, I Would!

        I have nothing against balding men. To me – this isn’t a good look for him. It’s just not a good buzz cut for him. It brings attention to how huge his head is.

  • miagain

    The exact same thing always happens to my husband’s ties… the knot slips below the button.  No matter how tight he knots the thing, it still slips below that button….
    Our friend here’s neck is giving me the willies… but the rest of him looks quite swell!

  • DessertWratt

    Pants are just a tich too tight. That’s what makes him look roidey, as much as his signature treetrunk neck. Also, he needs longer hair over the ears, so they don’t poke out so clownishly. On second/third look, maybe I’m being picky about the ears. And the pants.

    Is he wearing cufflinks? Who does that anymore? Points for attention to detail.

  • Imasewsure

    Ignoring the head. As you say, nice to see a pretty boy do more than just show up… nice to see suits fitted properly on muscle dudes too. Tailors do exist in Hollywood (at least for the men!)

  • teensmom99

    I am married to a thick necked guy so I have had to get used to the loose tie.  He thinks it’s his little secret and no none can see.  I usually don’t like the overly trim suit but this looks amazing.  He can sell it!

  • Yeah, don’t like the hair, do like the suit, but most of all I like that he looks like he is having fun and enjoying himself.

  • Natalie Marshall

    Man, Charming Potato, what have you been taking? The suit is nice, but you look like a Sontaran.

  • alyce1213

    I don’t get his appeal at all.  Nice suit,  though maybe a little too tight through the thighs.

    • oohsparkley!

      For all the people who are saying they don’t get his appeal – did you not see him dancing in Magic Mike?  He’s hot! He’s a mighty fine dancer. The movie wasn’t great – it should have been 90 minutes of him dancing. Yum!

      • alyce1213

        It’s not that I don’t like a sexy guy dancing — he’s just not my type.  Way too much muscular bulk.  I like ’em slender and cut.

        • tessasouthworth

          Exactly! Now my own personal ideal of a sexy man dancing is Hugh Jackman (or Gene Kelly). Channing Tatum reminds me of a dark version of Moose Mason from the Archie comics- too many lumps and bumps and muscles to appeal to me. That’s why I love this D & G suit on him; its fit is so flattering that he almost looks slender, and from the shoulders down I would never have guessed it was him. But I can understand why so many people find him attractive. As they say, chacun à son goût!

      • barbarienne

         His body is great, but if I had to look at that squinty-eyed, big-jawed mug all day, I’d go nuts. The proportions of his features just don’t appeal to me at all. Everyone has their things, right?

  • I like that brown of his tie. 

  • appliquer

    Nice, but I think when he sits down, the pants will split.

  • I don’t think I am gay enough to get his appeal.

  • Nazzzy

    I just don’t see the appeal.

  • kolokOlchik

    The balding egghead look is so not for him!

  • Beardslee

    It is so interesting to me how rarely you see a man in a suit that a fits him so well, despite all the stylists, etc fussing over them.

  • That is my favorite time! Yowza, he looks good. That suit fits him like a glove. 

  • mjude

    not my type but i think he looks nice.

  • librarygrrl64

    He dresses well, but this man does nothing for me. Too little hair, too much neck here.

  • He is a meathead and does nothing for me, but that suit fits him impeccably.

  • Tamara Hogan

    Great suit, but where’s his neck? 

  • ashtangajunkie

    He’s not for me at all – or wasn’t until I watched The Vow, anyway. Good gawd. Anyway! I very much appreciate the way he dresses. He always puts the effort in and he really is adorable.

  • The up mood of his very good year … he’s clearly still basking in it, and good for him!

  • RedRaven617

    Tasteful suit; check
    Slacks at a correct hem; check
    Neck is shaved; check.
    Hands are not shoved in pockets; check. 

    Mrs Tatum, you have a handsome husband. 

  • Why are his cheeks orange? Has he been eating too many carrots?

    • Derek_anny

       And it’s in his hairline, too.

  • GorgeousThings

    What role is it? Playing Matt Lauer?

    • another_laura

      And there it is, my chortle for the day!

  • JanieS

    I do not like his giant thumb-head or his meaty face, but he does fill out a suit nicely.

  • He’s looking extra potato-y but he looks good.  And he’s nowhere near the hugest guy I’ve ever seen.  I once saw a hottie in Santa Monica who was so big his head looked teeny tiny, like Alice the Goon.  The head was very pretty, and the body, while quite nice, was a little ridiculous.  I laughed for at least a block.

  • I want to see him naked.

    • DeTrop

      Now there’s a thought.  A good thought.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I just don’t find him attractive, no matter what he’s wearing.

  • kaycem

    yeah, it’s for a role called “male pattern baldness: the early years”… he’s so gross.  and that blush is the wrong color for his complexion.  womp womp.

  • omg, i honestly just don’t see how anyone can find him attractive.  he looks like a thumb with ears.

  • Violina23

    I never found him attractive, I can’t quite pin why…

  • Let’s see now: ears that stuck out, check. neck that goes straight out from his ears to his shoulders? check. The guy looks like a bad poster child for ‘Mammas: Don’t let your son’s become football players.” This is supposed to be sexy? Hello? Bring back Cary, Clark,  and Gary. 

  • Trevor Scott

    The thing between his thumb and forefinger is what’s making my eye twitch

  • Derek_anny

    What’s with the jaundiced cheeks?  Which are then echoed in his hairline?

  • That suit is the business and looks amazing on him (this is how you do it Mr. Renner).  From the neck up, however, no: too much cornfed realness going on for my taste and doesn’t he look eerily like Matt Damon on a bad day (in the face).  It will be interesting to see if he’s still “The Sexist Man Alive” bald though.

  • Just deleted a whole bunch of comments and banned someone because, once again, the bitter kittens think the no-body-snarking rule only applies to women. Please knock it off. If you can’t talk about his style and his outfit, then don’t say anything. 

  • Louise Bryan

    He looks like someone I would be scared of.  Guess I’m more for the pretty boy type.

  • Trisha26

    The jacket looks a little tight, and of course the droopy tie. I’m also on the “don’t like the hair at all” train.

  • barbarienne

    Still not getting the Channing Tatum thing. Sure, below the neck he’s well put together, but with or without hair, I don’t find his face attractive at all.

    What is that on his thumb? Is he wounded?

  • He still looks like a meathead, but a meathead who looks damn fine in that gorgeous suit.

  • quiltrx

    He does NOTHING for me.  The suit looks fine, but he looks dumb as a box of rocks.

  • butterflysunita

    Lovely suit.  

  • He does know how to wear a suit, but it seems a skosh too tight, and a skosh too shiny, too. 

  • formerlyAnon

    He manages to transcend, with his attire, my deep seated dislike of the “meathead” overly-muscular look.

    If even I can say well dressed & cute with it, he’s doing well.

  • tessasouthworth

    You hit the proverbial nail on the old Meathead! But although he is the antithesis of my idea of Sexiest Man Alive, that suit and its flattering fit are perfection.

  • mmc2315

    Too shiny for me, but the cut of the suit is flattering as hell.  Boy, that IS your cut of suit!

  • jw_ny

    too bad about the tie, ’cause otherwise the look would be pretty much perfect.  great suit.  He really seems to have his posing pretty much perfected too.  

  • ccm800

    I find not one thing attractive about that face at all. However someone does dress him well. He’s a big fella and the suits they choose for him are usually spot on. 

  • guest2visits

    He looks good; I don’t know what the material is, but it looks expensive. Maybe precise tailoring and the right shoes
    (plus gorgeous guy) makes everything look high dollar.

  • snarkykitten

    He looks like a potato in a suit

  • Pterodactyl111

    I just don’t find him very attractive.

  • boweryboy

    For a split second I was like, dahumn and then all I saw was meathead.  He looks like the kind of guy who beat up the gay kids in high school.

  • I’m just glad his pants are hemmed.  And I like the tie and shoes a lot.

  • Emmyllou

    Maybe he dresses well, but he just. doesn’t. look. right. Do we detect an overabundance of Botox? Some poorly administered plastic surgery? Too much lip gloss? I can’t figure it out but he just. Doesn’t. Look right. 

    • UglyTalents

       I totally agree. My first thought was that he was serving Mickey Rourke in a weird way because he’s way too young to be looking like that.

  • Allyson Wells

    Maybe i’m not giving him enough credit, but I’d bet having a stylish wife helps him stay focused on putting in the effort to be stylish.  I agree about the haircut… he looks MUCH better with longer hair! This just looks like he’s balding. 

  • Alyssa

    Boy o’clock is my favorite time of day! I think this is not his haircut, but he’s still very nice to look at! Great suit.

  • AthenaJ

    Mr Channing Potato-head.

  • butter nut

    he’s gonna look like ed asner when he gets old.

  • Sara LaBatt

    I think he looks good, nicely tailored suit, good color and sheen, interesting tie.  Great fit on what must be a tough-to-fit guy.  He has very large…shoes.  I wonder if his head & neck look big because maybe he’s slimmed down (or stopped bulking up) for Magic Mike?  I agree that isn’t the best haircut for him, he needs a little more volume up top for balance.  I never understood his appeal until I saw Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street, and now I find him appealing.  The dancing was yum, but also he was very funny in both movies!  Anyway, back to the look, I give him a thumbs up, I likee.
