For those of you who don’t know Channing Tatum (She’s the Man, Step Up) you soon will! This hunk (really, there is no other word!) is the answer to the numerous, unmanly pretty boys that have been stealing all the leading man roles in Hollywood (I’m looking at you, Zac Efron!) And last night we got the chance to marvel at Channing in the flesh at the London premiere of Dear John, and ladies, believe it or not, he’s even more dashing in real life!
Channing’s gorgeous co-star, Amanda Seyfried (Mean Girls, Mamma Mia) was also there, looking stunning in an embellished LBD and sky high black shoes, but her hair is the main focal point – it’s beautiful! Also on the red carpet was his beautiful wife, Jenna Dewan, (jealous, us?!?) who was wearing a not-so-flattering cream dress, but had the best accessory of the night – Channing! After a trip down the rain sodden red carpet, Amanda and Channing took to the stage before the screening to introduce the movie, and both seemed slightly uncomfortable and shy (especially Channing, who received a deafening amount of screams from all the teenage girls – and us!) and talked a little about working together and the film itself.
The film is adapted from the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks, and I loved it; it’s was slightly cheesy in parts, very moving in others, and I did cry! Channing and Amanda give very good performances, and both look drop-dead-gorgeous throughout, and the storylines will pull at your heartstrings. The child actor who plays Alan is a complete scene stealer, and is very adorable! If you liked The Notebook, this will be right up your street!
While John is on leave in his hometown, he finds Savannah, a college student visiting the town. Although love was unexpected, it doesn’t mean they didn’t find it. With the knowledge of John having to leave for the army, their love still lives, until his re-signs on due to the 9/11 attack. Troubles invade and their love put on hold. One cannot bear it anymore; can the other? (IMDB)
