Throughout the evening, the fans posed and took photos with Tatum’s wax figure on the red carpet. He was dressed in a dark suit and tie which the ladies tugged and pulled at. (Sorry ladies, no breakaway pants this time.) Fans marveled at the figure with comments ranging from, “Wow, he is so lifelike” to being “obsessed with him.” Another fan even asked the team if they could look away for a moment so she “could run out to her car and stuff him in the backseat.”

A team of 20 Madame Tussauds artists was responsible for crafting the wax figure of Channing Tatum based from over 300 precise body measurements. In order to create a lifelike wax figure, the figure is first sculpted in clay and is then covered in plaster. Wax is then poured in and cooled off. Finishing details include acrylic teeth; head and facial hair that are individually inserted, and layers of acrylic paint are applied to build up his skin tone.
