Channing Tatum keeps it real in his reddit AMA: Read the 10 best moments

(Michael Tran/FilmMagic)

It’s hardly uncommon for celebrities to take to reddit AMAs to promote a new project. Sometimes they’re fun and engaging, and sometimes they’re the exact opposite and coming off as shill-like. Put Channing Tatum’s Q&A on Wednesday into the former category.

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1, so Tatum was promoting that and an Omaze charity contest to attend the red carpet, premiere, and afterparty. Here are our 10 favorite responses. It’s great.

He loves Chili’s.

So much so, in fact, that an ID-less Tatum once pleaded with an employee in the Seattle airport location to serve him beer to pair with chicken crisps. We’ve all been there.

The perfect sandwich is a foreign concept.

Peanut butter, jelly, white bread, and Cheetos. Ew.

He legitimately likes Care Bears.

And even has a favorite: the cousins.

The “HAHAHA” email just kind of happened.

You know, this one. Tatum’s unsure how long it took—and he didn’t utilize the advanced copy-and-paste functionality.

Joe Manganiello would beat him in a fight.

Because of his shiny pecs. Of course.

Advice for those diagnosed with ADD: “don’t look at it as a disability.”

Tatum was diagnosed when he was a teen.

His preferred Magic Mike costar to give him a lap dance is Kevin Nash.

For real, though.

Would he be James Bond?

It’s a tough sell, but he leans toward saying no to retain the character’s continuity. Long live the queen.

Your remedy for a bad day is his, too.

He Pins, natch. He’s a Pinner.

He doesn’t understand Shia LeBeouf’s motivational video—even though they’re buds.

In maybe only this way, Tatum’s like all of us.
