LOL at anyone who believes the newest rumors about Channing Tatum’s “drinking problem.”
OK! magazine has the story and claims that sources say Tatum has quit drinking, and it’s made him a huge bore.
This alleged insider told the magazine that at a recent event, Tatum was “grumpy and bored,” and “barely able to muster a smile,” as he turned down booze and sipped water all night. “He admitted he was off the booze and said it wasn’t a big deal, but clearly it was,” the source added.
And supposedly, at least, according to this insider, “he wasn’t his usual fun self — in fact, he was pretty rude to anyone who spoke to him.”
Even if Tatum has quit drinking, that’s his choice, and we find it awfully hard to believe that booze is such a big part of his personality that giving it up would change him into a completely different person. And for anyone who believes that it’s made him grumpy and boring, we have evidence to disprove that.
Tatum was part of a group of celebs who joined Jimmy Kimmel on a holiday special to sing a song they wrote all about AIDS research and the holiday spirit. Take a look at Tatum having a tap dance contest with Neil Patrick Harris and try to tell me that he’s grumpy and boring. Go ahead.
As OK! points out, Tatum has in the past called himself a “functioning alcoholic,” but only jokingly.
“It was something said that wasn’t meant to be factual,” he later clarified. “It was said in context with the glutton side of myself. I’m constantly a flip-and-flop of extremes. I take care of it, to an extent — and then I kind of knock it all down and destroy the sand castle. All I meant was that I do things in extreme.”
