The Magic Mike hunk beat out competition from Ryan Gosling, Daniel Craig and Tom Hardy to claim People Magazine's highly coveted award.
Channing was a little surprised by the news as he said, "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me.'"
"I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."
Last year's winner Bradley Cooper caused a bit of uproar as Ryan Gosling fans thought their beloved deserved the title.
We wonder if how they'll handle a second year without seeing Ryan win the title.
Surely even they have to agree that watching Channing pop, lock and drop it in Magic Mike deserved some sort of global recognition for his efforts.
The sexy actor first caught our attention in Step Up where he met his co-star turned wife Jenna Dewan Tatum.
Lucky lucky girl!
Magic Mike is out on DVD 26th November 2012
