Channing Tatum Reveals Childhood Crush on Alyssa Milano: "She Was It, Man"

Really, who hasn't had a crush on Alyssa Milano? Now fans can count Channing Tatum as yet another hot-blooded American dude who once had a childhood crush on the Who's the Boss? actress. (Milano, now 40, played tomboy-turned-heartbreaker Samantha Micelli on the sitcom from 1984 to 1992.)

The White House Down actor, 33, confessed to Elle in its July issue that she was his first celebrity infatuation. "She was it, man," he said. "I'd love to run into her. I'm pretty sure I'd geek out. Isn't she married?" (Yup, the actress is married to Hollywood agent David Bugliari and has a nearly 2-year-old son, Milo, with him. Tatum would be well-advised to check out Milano's current Maxim cover, on which she poses wearing very little and looking very sexy.)

That wasn't his only revelation. Tatum also shared his penchant for getting naked when he's home. "I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstars just follows at some point," he teased.

The bulk of the interview, though, was devoted to Tatum's current "crush" -- wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who gave birth to their daughter Everly on May 30. "Jenna and I have a trick we use to check in with each other," he revealed. "We say, 'On a scale of one to 10, how much do you love me right now?' It's not as romantic as you think. Sometimes it's like, 'I love you at a six right now. I have an issue, and you asked. So now I'm going to tell you...' "

The star, who met his wife when they were filming Step Up in 2009, is obviously still head over heels for her, but hinted that maybe he prefers her not pregnant. "My sculptures look like my wife," shared the actor, who likes to sculpt during his downtime. "Not pregnant. Her old body."

And then there's this. Commenting on the validity of the claim that pregnant women want sex more: "It's a bit of a paradox. They're definitely hormonally raging, but when they get further along -- they're just dealing all the time," he bemoaned. "So, yes and no."
