In between drinks with GQ, the actor said that his drinking might be excessive

Actor Channing Tatum admitted to overindulging in everything from cake to cheeseburgers to alcohol, in GQ‘s July cover story.

“I probably drink too much, you know,” he said in the interview, which apparently took place while having a few drinks. “I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess. There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time.”

Tatum did mention that having a baby has helped him cut back. The actor also claims he can skip drinking for up to four months.

“Then at the end of that movie, it’s go time,” he said.
