Channing Tatum graces the cover of the August issue of GQ and inside he removes his shirt to reveal an action hero body. His new movie, 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,' opens in theaters August 7.

The 29-year-old newlywed (he married 'Step Up' costar Jenna Dewan on Saturday) talked with the mag in his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama.

On his photoshoot diet:

"I have a special meal plan that I'm on. It's pretty much just chicken and broccoli and brown rice. Four times a day. And egg whites."

On his star turn from Abercrombie model to Hollywood:
"I got crazy lucky. Like, sometimes I think I won the lottery or something. At times it feels like the bottom's gonna fall out. Just 'cause I don't really know how I got here. But I just keep moving forward, and it just keeps getting better and better."

On his poorly-reviewed upcoming 'G.I. Joe' movie:

"This is, like, my first step out into the whole commercial realm. I hope it does okay."
