Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth are getting flirty on Instagram and the internet can't cope
Can Channing Tatum act? It's a question I ask myself with unnerving frequency. I mean, can he? Can Channing Tatum act? Or, does he just play himself in every movie he's ever been in? Channing Tatum with his button eyes, Channing Tatum with his neck as thick as my thighs, Channing Tatum, trying to be pensive but just pulling that same, blank, Channing Tatum expression Channing Tatum always uses. Can Channing Tatum act?
Well, if the film industry is anything to go by, people clearly think he can. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tatum has a net worth of close to $60 million and is able to draw in roughly $20 million for each film that he stars in. However, while things are going well for Channing on the screen, it's been a tough year for the star off of it.
Back in April, Channing announced that he had split from his wife of nine years, Jenna Dewan. Taking to his Instagram account to issue the generic, cliched celebrity break up statement, Channing wrote:
"Hey world! So…We have something we would like to share."
"First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for.
"We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into 'alternative facts' So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction," the 37-year-old continued.
"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now.
"There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.
"We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.
"Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna."
But while Channing's relationship with Jenna may have run its course, it seems like there is a new one prospering.
Taking to his Instagram account yesterday, Chris Hemsworth posted a photo of himself topless for his new movie, Bade Time at the El Royale. Obviously, Instagram went into meltdown with Josh Brolin and Paul Bettany commenting on the picture.
However, it was Channing's reaction to the image that raised a few eyebrows: "I will watch anything with Chris shirtless in a field of flowers. Or Chris looking like Jesus in the rain."
Chris also appeared to be into it.
So it appears that Channing Tatum, like a lot of other people, has a crush on Chris Hemsworth. Who knows, maybe we're about to see the most unlikely celebrity couple of all time?
