Why Women Love Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum is the definition of eye candy. Just in time for Valentine's Day the gorgeous actor stars in the upcoming romantic film "The Vow" opposite Rachel McAdams (in theaters Feb. 10). He plays a man who tries to win back his new bride's heart after she loses her memory in a tragic car accident. Sounds very romantic, doesn't it?

The actor has been on our radar for a while. First, he showed off his incredible abs in Abercrombie & Fitch catalogs and modeled for famous brands such as Nautica, Gap, Aeropostale, Emporio Armani, and American Eagle.

After roles in "Coa...

Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan attended the "Haywire" Los Angeles premiere yesterday. Jenna looked stunning in a white lace gown, while Channing was dapper in a blue suit. We think the pair (who met on the set of "Step Up" in 2006) are one of the most attractive couples in Hollywood. What do you think?

"Haywire" centers on mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano who plays a lethal government contractor who's betrayed by her own agency. Channing co-stars. The actor is on the rise. He will appear in several upcoming films, including "21 Jump Street," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "Magi...

Actress Jenna Dewan and her female co-stars on new TV drama The Playboy Club were forced to undergo a full day of "bunny training" to perfect their poses as the iconic waitresses.

The Step Up star features alongside fellow 'Bunnies' Amber Heard and Naturi Naughton in the new show, about publishing mogul Hugh Hefner's first Playboy Club in Chicago, Illinois.

Hollywood Unwrapped Column: Lets Get Ready To Dance

4/8/2011 3:30pm EDT
Don’t laugh or call me a girl (HA) but, if you’re anything like me, you might enjoy watching movies with lots of dancing! While watching some of these dance movies such as Hitch or Step Up or any one of the Bring It On movies, you may have wondered who dancer number 1 was. That really cute dancer is Sarah Mitchell from Burlesque.

I was invited to attend the first annual Dance Track Magazine Artist Awards. I had never heard of such a thing or did I know anything about dancers or dancing for that matter, but I will explain that later. I have to admit that attending an event with all of these...

Ever since John Travolta made his signature moves in 1977's "Saturday Night Fever," moviegoers can't get enough of male flesh dancing on the big screen. The following decade, Kevin Bacon rebelled in "Footloose" and Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov stole the show in "White Nights." Dancing men are surprisingly hot.

Channing Tatum
Sorry ladies, Channing Tatum is taken. He married his Step Up leading lady Jenna Dewan. Even though he’s still playing young guys in movies like this weekend’s The Eagle, Tatum says marriage makes him feel like a grown-up for the first time in his life.

“I really love saying that I’m married,” Tatum said. “I love saying ‘my wife.’ I don't think I’ve ever felt grown up and I think it’s sort of a rite of passage for me to feel like a grown up and responsible.”

The Eagle is an ancient battle movie with lots of stunts. Marriage hasn’t taken away Tatum’s edge. He still likes to do his own stun...

We all wish we could have bodies that look as good as some celebrities. But the stars with some of the hardest and hottest bods put in a lot of time to get that sexy physique. Be it via working out, yoga, pilates or some type of strength training, acquiring a fit body requires much discipline.

Animated Films Adults Can Enjoy
The movie industry is always looking for the right audiences to sell to, and no age bracket is more lucrative to them than the kiddies. The children can consistently bring in big numbers if they're interested enough to beg their parents to go, and then they want popcorn and candy and soda and please please pleeeease mommy! Love for movies starts in most people at a young age, and while adults may roll their eyes at "G-Force," they'll reluctantly be dragged by their kids or nieces and nephews to see it. However, not all kids movies have proven to be only for children. Recently "Where the Wil...

The top 20 contestants are about to engage in the sixth So You Think You Can Dance competition on Fox. Right now, it's anybody's game. Even head judge and producer Nygel Lythgoe couldn't predict a front runner.

"I have no idea," Lythgoe said. "I wouldn't have even told you that Jeanine, who I thought was very good, would have won and I think she only won on the finale. I thought Brandon was going to win from quite early on. I thought Evan stood a very good chance if he was to grow, and he didn't grow for me, so I couldn't tell you now. I don't even know half of the kids yet."

Can The Remake Of 'Fame' Reinvent Itself Or Surpasses Its Predecessor?

9/23/2009 10:15am EDT
There are a lot of movies about the angst and the hope of high school, and even a few musicals set in that time period, but none of them were quite as devastating or as memorable as "Fame." The film came out in 1980 and is about the life of an ensemble cast of talented teenagers as they enroll in an extremely competitive performing arts high school. Only the best of the best get into the New York High School of Performing Arts, and those that do get in must prepare for four years of grueling practice and soul crushing criticism. The students learn that they must lean on one another and on a...

The Wayans Brothers have spoofed genre movies from blaxploitation to hood dramas to horror films. Now they're attacking the recent spate of dance movies. Dance Flick pokes fun at the Step Up movies, You Got Served, Save the Last Dance and more.

"Whenever you start seeing repetition in the same type of movie over and over again, it's time to get Wayansed," said director Damien Wayans.

Co-writer Marlon Wayans said that one film was the template for the spoof. "I think Save the Last Dance lent itself," Marlon said. "It was actually a good movie for the time. I'm not just saying this...

New Hotties Found for 'Step Up 3D'

Step Up introduced the world to Channing Tatum and the art of swooning has never been the same. Step Up 2 the Streets gave the boys Briana Evigan, and now the third Step Up film will introduce the world to Rick Malambri and Sharni Vinson. Producer Adam Shankman bragged about his latest discoveries.

"We're discovering more people but believe me, if you'd like to get on that computer and look up Rick Malambri, your head will fall off," Shankman said. "We're into like a Channing Tatum, another Channing kind of thing."

That's not all. These hotties will be in your face, because it's S...

This Week In Gossip!

Kanye West
Rap superstar Kanye West and one of his bodyguards spent some time in the slammer this week, accused of attacking paparazzi surrounding them at LAX. I guess "accused" is the wrong word since gossip outlet TMZ has video of the beat down. Fans, never fear, Kanye and co. were released hours after the incident on $20,000 bail each. No word on whether they will be further prosecuted.

In a somewhat bizarre story on the celebrity dating scene, Kirsten Dunst is claiming she's met rumored beau, Justin Long, only once. HUH? In the interview with Harper's Bazaar, the starlet is quoted as say...

Aaron Zigman's Score For "Flicka" Is A Wild Ride

10/6/2006 3:22pm EDT
Film composer Aaron Zigman scores 20th Century Fox's remake of the 1943 family western "My Friend Flicka." The modern version, with its title shortened to "Flicka," stars Alison Lohman and country music superstar Tim McGraw as daughter and father. When the father (McGraw) decides that Katie (Lohman) should attend college in place of running the family ranch, she decides to tame a wild mustang in order to sway his opinion. Zigman's score is rousing and propulsive, reminiscent of the dynamic scores of golden-era westerns such as "The Magnificent Seven." Directed by Michael Mayer ("A Home at t...
