Channing Tatum says he's "probably" an alcoholic, but a "high-functioning" one at that.
The 34-year-old "Magic Mike" star recently gave a wide-ranging interview to GQ magazine and confessed his love for pottery, confetti cake and bourbon.Tatum told the magazine. "My wife, that's what she bought into...I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess."
Tatum explained that he drinks to slow down his overactive mind.
"There's probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time," he said.
The Hollywood actor, who has been married to Jenna Dewan-Tatum since 2009, added that his drinking has slowed since the birth of his now-11-month-old daughter, Everly.
Tatum also revealed that he's cutting booze out of his life for four months while he films the "Magic Mike" sequel, now in pre-production. But, after shooting, it's back to the bottle.
"At the end of that movie, it's go time," he revealed.
His next release, "22 Jump Street," hits theaters on June 22.
