Channing Tatum better ‘Step Up’ before meeting Simon Biles! Referring to her as ‘the greatest of all time’ while on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ the actor was fangirl-ing ALL over the Olympic gymnast and could not contain his excitement and admiration for her. Watch him FREAK out in the hilarious video below.
Look out, Jenna Dewan — your hubby Channing Tatum, 36, is totally crushing on someone else! Of course we’re kidding, but it’s pretty clear that the Magic Mike actor is a HUGE fan of Simone Biles, 19. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show, the stud confessed that he thinks Simone is “the greatest of all time,” and that he couldn’t wait to meet her for the first time. Meanwhile, Simone was equally excited to meet Channing. Watch the hilarious moment they came face-to-face below!
Who knew Channing was so funny?! Like all of us, he too had some VERY important questions for the gymnast, like how in the heck she manages to throw herself into the air so gracefully, and how she manages to land so flawlessly. Channing is convinced that Simone defies gravity completely, and uses her magical toes to stay balanced on the beam. Judging from how well she did in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, it’s highly likely that Simone is some kind of mythical creature.
Meanwhile, Channing’s performances have been rather godly as well. Not only does his body resemble that of a Grecian deity, he’s also been killing it in the acting game! Since capturing our hearts in Step Up, Channing has appeared in more dancing hits like Magic Mike: XXL, comedies like 22 Jump Street, AND action flicks! Channing is set to appear in the newest Men In Black installment, and will take the lead in Gambit — a superhero movie based off the Marvel comics. As long as we keep seeing that six-pack, we’re happy!
HollywoodLifers, who would you love to meet more, Channing or Simone?
