However, it's still exciting to see our favorite stripper turned Hollywood heartthrob receive such an honor, and Tatum's 21 Jump Street costar Jonah Hill was quick to tweet that he agrees with the rest of the world: Channing is finger lickin' good (looking).
Or, well, in this case, magazine lickin' good.
"@channingtatum you've always been the sexiest man alive to me! (Congrats pal!)," Hill tweeted, with a photo of himself licking the People magazine cover. And let's not forget, Jonah's seen Tatum in his birthday suit.
Other celebs also took to Twitter to congratulate the actor for his sexy achievement.
What I Like About You star Nick Zano said, "Congratulations to the genetics of @kaytatum & Glen for creating the 'Sexiest Man Alive' @channingtatum."
And of course, Channing's beautiful wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum also chimed in on her hubby's new title: "Well obviously I agree! Good job @peoplemag! Congrats to my humble,loving,talented and yes- SEXY- love @channingtatum!!"
