What The HELL Has GQ Done To Channing Tatum?

Unless this very handsome 32-year-old dropped by the plastic surgeon and asked for “The Joan Rivers with Balls,” I would have to make this GQ cover a leading candidate for Worst Airbrushing Of The Young Century.

Or maybe they couldn’t get Mr. Tatum and photographed his figure at Madame Tussaud’s.

    His head is far too big for his torso. He looks like some sort of oversized/undersized mannequin. Spooooky.

    Awful work. In the current tailspin print media is in, it doesn’t surprise me to see the quality of work going to shit.

  3. christian says:

    Marketing folk think that MAD MEN’s popularity means they don’t suck.

    Are you sure this isn’t Mad Magazine? It looks like Alfred E. Newman as Channing Tatum.

    WTF? He looks like one of the queens that I see at my gym who I feel so sorry for because it’s obvious that they’re getting work done when it’s way too early or even unwarranted. Hopefully this is the work of some photo editor and not how he really looked at the shoot.

    Good catch, DP!

“We don’t defy the laws of physics: There are no flying men or cars in this movie. So it made sense to do it old-school: real vehicles and real human beings in the desert. We shot the movie more or less in continuity, because the cars and the characters get really banged up along the way. The biggest benefit of digital technology for me was that the cameras were smaller and much more agile, so you could put them anywhere. We also spent a huge amount of time on spatial awareness—making sure the viewer could follow the action and understand what was happening. There has to be a strong causal connection from one shot to the next, just the same way that in music, there has to be a connection from one note to the next. Otherwise it’s just noise. Too often, if you just cram a lot of stuff into the frame, you get the illusion of a fast pace. But there’s no coherence. It doesn’t flow. It comes off as headbanging music, and it can be exhausting. We storyboarded the movie before we had a script: We had 3,500 boards, which helps the cast and crew understand how everything is going to fit together. Movies are getting faster and faster. The Road Warrior had 1,200 cuts. This one has 2,700 cuts. You have to treat it like a symphony.”

“I was having issues with my script for It’s All About Love, so I called Ingmar Bergman and we ended up talking about everything but the script. He said, “Well, Festen is a masterpiece, so what are you going to do now?” At that point, I had not decided if I was going to make It’s All About Love, so I answered, “Hmmm, I don’t know. Maybe this, maybe that.” There was just a long pause, and then he said, “You’re fucked.” I said, “Well, how can you know?” “Well, Thomas, you always have to decide your next movie before the movie you’re doing presently opens.” And I said, “Why is that?” “Well, two things can happen. One thing is that you fail, and then you’ll feel scared and humiliated. It’ll get into your head. Second, and even worse, you have success, and then you’ll want more of it, or you’ll want to maintain it. But if you decide on your next film while you’re in the middle of editing, it becomes a very nonchalant choice. And then it’s shorter from the heart to the hand.”
