Channing Tatum Calls Dancing With Beyonce 'Terrifying'
Channing Tatum gets animated during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing on Thursday (January 28) from Los Angeles.
The 35-year-old Hateful Eight star opened up about getting Beyonce to join him on stage for Lip Sync Battle.
“I had never met her before. I won’t even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant’s phone number. Or text her I was texting her,” Channing said. “I didn’t even have the intention of her coming. It was a whole ploy to get permission to do something cause I had gotten it through the grapevine that Jenna [Dewan Tatum, his wife] was gonna bring out Paula [Abdul] and I was like hmm who can I bring out, I know Beyonce‘s not gonna come so I wanted to bring like a cardboard cut out of Beyonce out just to be funny and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyonce doing Beyonce and that was definitely the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.”
