Channing Tatum sure picked an odd time to tell his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, that he'd been named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive. It was while they were cleaning skunk spray off their dogs!

"Our dogs were being skunked every other night for about two months straight, so this was a very normal occurrence, to be kneeling in front of the bathtub washing our dogs," the actress, 31, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the opening of Kimberly Snyder's juice bar Glow Bio in West Hollywood.

"But he was like, 'Oh, by the way, I was named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive...' "

He may have bared (almost) all of that incredibly chiseled body in this year's Magic Mike but 2012's Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum was still modest when he heard the news.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" says Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009. "I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

Says the actor: "She was like, 'What?'"

"Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now," he adds. And who can blame her?

"I'm in therapy three times a week, but I think I'll get through it," the star of already critically-praised Silver Linings Playbook told PEOPLE at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills on Monday.

While Former Sexiest Man Alive (and Argo director and star) Ben Affleck also made an appearance at the gala, Cooper had his eye on another past winner when asked who should be 2012's Sexiest Man Alive.

While Cooper calls himself a "single 36-year-old male," it's safe to assume that when he asks a woman on a dinner date, the answer must be "Oui!"
