Channing Tatum has confessed he often gets lost in the eyes of his Magic Mike XXL co-star Matt Bomer.

The 35-year-old actor is currently promoting new movie Magic Mike XXL, the second film in his franchise about male strippers.

During a Reddit AMA chat on Wednesday, Channing told fans if he had access to any superpower in the universe, it would be to magically create nudity.

“I wish that I could make anyone at any point just happen to be naked (sic),” he wrote. “Not for the reasons that everyone thinks. Because people get really nice when they get naked. Like okay, I can’t be an a*shole. People aren’t a*sholes when they get naked (for the most part). They are thinking about what they look like. Sh*tty answer, I tried to do something funny and it didn’t work.”

Channing stars in Magic Mike XXL alongside some of the hunkiest actors in Hollywood, including Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez.

And Channing noted it’s almost impossible not to be struck by his castmates’ beauty.

“absof**kinglutely. no matter if you’re a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in matt bomer’s eyes,” he joked. “I don’t know what they are made of outside of dreams and rainbows and amazingness but it truly doesn’t matter. And when he sings. It’s like god gave with both hands and then grew a third hand and graced him with more. he’s crazy talented.”

In real life Channing is happily married to wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, with whom he shares two-year-old daughter Everly.

When asked about how they came up with their little girl’s name, the star provided the entire background story.

“I wish I could say i love the Everly Bros but that’s not why we named her Everly,” Channing quipped. “The simple story is my wife was driving down the street one day and heard it in her head. So happy wife happy life.”
