    Oh. My. God!!!

    In honor of throwback Thursday, Out magazine resurfaced one of their magazine covers from February 2002 that featured an unknown Channing Tatum, who at the time was working as a male model before he became a household name.

    For the steamy cover, which was a Valentine's Day issue shot by Todd Oldham, a shirtless Tatum wrestles a dark-haired male model as the two hunks stare into the camera. Under them reads the caption, "Romance! Out photographer Todd Oldham offers sizzling Valentine's Day twosomes and threesomes."

    Sizzling is right! In an inside photo spread, a sweaty Tatum wears only denim short-shorts while climbing on top of the other model, who's only wearing underwear briefs and a sleeveless tee (holy TBT hotness!).

    Ten years later, the Magic Mike star opened up to Out about working as a stripper at age 19.

    "I never enjoyed the taking-the-clothes-off part," Tatum said. "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."
