Before Channing Tatum's big break in Coach Carter, 2012's Sexiest Man Alive had to take his clothes off just to keep the lights on. So what did the former stripper do after scoring a slew of successful films? Take it (almost) all off in the semi-autobiographical 2012 film, Magic Mike.

The G.I. Joe star danced his way into the big time, first on the stripper stage, then in Ricky Martin's video for "She Bangs" and then 2006's dance movie Step Up, where Tatum met actress and future wife Jenna Dewan.

Of course, the former Nautica and Abercrombie & Fitch model is more than just a piece of man meat with good rhythm. After taking on challenging roles in such films as Recognizing Your Saints, the sexy star earned the title of "thinking girl's hunk" by People magazine.

The Battle in Seattle stud has also proven a quick study on set. After working as a producer on his 2012 comedy, 21 Jump Street, the Foxcatcher fox told Details magazine he only wants to appear in movies he's produced. So the Dear John hottie and his wife cofounded two production companies, 33andOut Productions and Iron Horse Entertainment.

When not filming or working on his production company, Tatum can be found spending time with his wife and adorable daughter, Everly, born in June 2013.
