The "22 Jump Street" actor, 34, spoke to GQ about his drinking habits.

“I probably drink too much, you know. My wife, that’s what she bought into. ... 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," he candidly told the magazine.

Tatum was in the news recently after being cast as Gambit in a future "X-Men" movie and he touched on what he liked about the character growing up.

"[Gambit's] the only superhero I really followed.… He was the most real to me: smoking, drinking, women-loving, thief," he said. "He just looked cool to me. I’ve always loved him. And obviously he’s Cajun.”

Finally, the father of Everly, 1, spoke about a friend no one knew about till now -- his invisible friend.

“His name was Boy," he said. "I think I just lived in an imaginary world. I was always playing war in the woods, people are chasing me… I wasn’t doing it because I was desperate for friends. I had friends.”
