Channing Tatum has to be one of America's most fun movie stars, he's also crazy (it's his life motto). Don't believe us? Just ask Jessica Pressler, GQ's writer who spent twenty-four hours deep in the California Desert with "Chan" armed with glow sticks, tequila, snacks, and Snuggies.

Before camping out together (don't worry, he called his wife [Jenna Dewan] first!), the pair spent the night bar hopping through a tiny mining town, mingling with the locals, and touring the area's abandoned bordellos.

During their journey, Tatum opened up about his stint as a stripper, "I'm not ashamed of it. I don't regret one thing. I'm not a person who hides sh--"; being type casted as a beefcake, "No one's calling me for lawyer roles. I still have a lot to prove to myself"; and why doing his own stunts is important, "I think people pay money to see the actor go through a wall. I want to be like, 'Holy sh--, Johnny Depp actually jumped off that building. That guy's f--king crazy. I want to be him.'"
