I found this interview with Channing Tatum and his real-life girlfriend and Step Up co-star, Jenna Dewan, at a December 18, 2006 press conference in Rome for the release of the movie in Italy. Jenna looks absolutely gorgeous in a royal greeen frock that accents her beautiful green eyes and you can really tell that she and Channing have a ton of chemistry as you watch the interview.
The video starts off a little slowly, because it seems that they have edited together some bits and pieces. But once you get about 1 minute into the approximately 5 minute interview clip the reporters start asking Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan questions in Italian. The heavy Italian-accented interpreter then “helps” them through the interview. Because the sound quality is not great, here are a few highlights from Channing and Jenna’s interview…
One of the reporters asks them what type of thing would they NOT do to advance their career. Jenna has to think for a second, but then says “Playboy”. (Hopefully she won’t ever have to eat those words.) Channing says that he would not do anything that his heart was not into. One of the big reasons why he really wanted to do Step Up was because he truly loves to dance. Channing continues to answer the question by saying, “I would never do anything that I didn’t enjoy simply because it was a good career move.” In usual jokster Channing fashion, he also adds that he would not do Playboy and Jenna chimes in and corrects him by saying “Playgirl” as everyone laughs. (As Florida Evans says on Goodtimes, “Damn! Damn! Damn!”.)
Ok. Moving on….
The best part of the interview is when one of the Italian reporters asks Channing and Jenna to describe each other. Jenna explains that Chan is very sweet, loving, funny, giving, caring, and compassionate and is a really goal-oriented, hard worker. If the interview was a little longer, I am sure she would have made it to “sexy” or “hot as hell”, but I think we all get the point.
You can tell that Chan is probably a little embarassed, but he lets the reporters know that Jenna is gorgeous both inside and out, is very real and has a “flower child-like” beautiful soul that is centered around love. And as the interpreter reiterates what he said in Italian to the reporters you can’t help but notice Jenna loving looking at Channing with that “oh you are so getting some tonight” look! (Awww so sweet!!!)
OK you may have to forgive my paraphrasing a bit, but you get the jist. This is obviously two people who love and respect each other. They ABSOLUTELY make the cuttest couple in the world! And I’m pretty sure many of us would sell our first born to be in Jenna’s shoes.
So here’s my question…I’m wondering why we seem to keep seeing Jenna and Channing with rings on their left ring finger. Really makes me wonder if the marriage rumors may have a little truth to them. Hmmmmm. Food for thought…
