When Channing Tatum First Met Jenna Dewan — She Had “The Worst Breath”
They're arguably the sexiest couple in Hollywood, and they met making the sexy dance movie Step Up, but there's nothing too sexy about the story Jenna Dewan-Tatum shared with The Daily Beast about first meeting her future husband, Channing Tatum.
“I mean, obviously, he’s a drop-dead gorgeous man," the American Horror Story star said of her Magic Mike hubby. "He was so kind. He took me outside the studio and we ran lines together, to get comfortable [making Step Up]. He’s still that giving and that humble and that nice of a guy. That struck me immediately.”
Aww! So far, so good. But Jenna told the site Channing noticed something else about her that he still brings up sometimes. "He is like, 'You had the worst breath. The worst.' I'm like, 'Thanks, babe.'"
Ha! Happens to the best of us. Obviously they got past it, since they are now married and — when they aren't filming elsewhere — live in L.A. with their two dogs, Meeka and Lulu Bella. They also recently opened a bar in New Orleans.
“When we got married around 27, it felt normal to find the person I’m meant to be with,” Jenna said. “You don’t think, 'Am I too young or too old?' You think, 'This is somebody I want to spend the rest of my life with.’”
So sweet. But maybe as a gag gift, he should give her breath mints on their anniversary.
