The 34 year-old actor spoke candidly with GQ about taking on such a hectic schedule and lifestyle: "I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one."
In the candid interview, the 34 year-old actor remembers the time he drank the blood of James Franco, taking on an intense schedule and jokes about being a "high-functioning alcoholic."
Tatum told the magazine he once "drank the blood of James Franco," while appearing in the Seth Rogen-directed comedy 'This Is The End' as Danny McBride's sex slave.
"I mean, when can I say I've drank the blood of James Franco," he admitted. "Why wouldn't I go and do that?"
Although the blood-drinking scene never made it to the finished production, he is proud to have taken on such a bizarre cameo.
"Be as crazy as I could possibly be, and have fun," he said of the role. "If it felt weird, I would have stopped. It felt weird in a good way."
Tatum is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, in the past year and a half he has taken one huge roles in the flicks, 'White House Down,' 'Foxcatcher,' 'Jupiter Ascending,' and '22 Jump Street.'
"I feel like I was definitely the fat kid at the buffet," he said of his recent roles. "There were four really great projects, and I was 'I wanna do them all.'"
Despite receiving advice from others to not take on such a busy schedule, he decided to go ahead anyway.
"They're like, 'You know doing four movies back-to-back is going to kill you?' and I'm, 'Yeah, but that's something I can take. That's just going to be tiring, and tired doesn't kill you,'" he stated. "Zero breaks."
But during his rare down time, Channing admits he does enjoy having a drink, or two.
"I probably drink too much," he confessed. "I'm probably a pretty high-functioning alcoholic, I guess."
When recalling all that he has done in these past years, the 'Magic Mike' actor concluded, "I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one, and I've pushed the limit almost at every turn. I'm super proud of that."
