Channing: I did not go to military school. I had an option either a military school or a private school. I don't know how to get that out of the information that's out there.
Channing: I've always had way too much energy so I'm always looking for new things to do to channel that energy.
Channing: I think all jocks have a sensitive side. It's just, will they show it to anybody? Will they let their guard down and stop being tough and the cool jock guy around their friends, or just relax? I don't know if it's best to say opening up, but just relax and really say what you're actually thinking, and not what you think people want to hear." - when asked about comparing himself to Duke Orsino.
Channing: My parents couldn't handle my energy so they enrolled me in every sport the school was offering. I didn't resent it because I loved sports and picked them up easily.
Channing: (about why he started martial arts) I don't know. The focus, the determination, the adrenaline — all those very basic emotions, I just loved them.
Channing: I really get inspired by songs. Like, if I hear a thug "Want to kill ya" song, I'm ready to go out and get crazy. Or if you hear this really sexual, sensual slow song, I want to go have sex. I'm very animalistic when it comes to stuff like that. Very basic emotions. I don't know if I'm very complicated at all. I wish I was. I wish I was one of these deep, intricate people. But I just love having fun really.
Channing: I'm not pretty. The truth is I didn't think I could be a model at all. I was looking at some of the guys on the walls at Irene Marie and I thought to myself 'Jesus Christ. I can't do this. I don't look anything like these guys'.
Channing: To be honest though, I still don't think I fit into the Abercrombie category. You'll see in the pictures how everyone looks a certain way and then there's this bald ghetto kid in the corner.
Channing: (About being in Europe) It's just the whole vibe. You're all alone, you miss home but you can't call because it's so expensive.
Channing: Girls were always my biggest distraction in school.
