Channing Tatum Reacts to Amanda Bynes Saying She Got Him Cast in 'She's The Man'!

Channing Tatum is sending love to his She’s The Man co-star Amanda Bynes!

The 38-year-old actor, who starred in the 2006 film alongside the 32-year-old actress, was asked by ET about her recent Paper Magazine cover story, in which she discussed her past struggles with drugs and her sobriety, during the Magic Mike Live press night in London on Wednesday night (November 28).

In the piece, Amanda revealed that she pushed to get Channing cast in the film.

“I totally fought for Channing [to get cast in] that movie because he wasn’t famous yet. He’d just done a Mountain Dew commercial and I was like, ‘This guy’s a star — every girl will love him!’ But [the producers] were like, ‘He’s so much older than all of you!’ And I was like, ‘It doesn’t matter! Trust me!’”

“I love her. I guess she sort of told me [that she fought to get me in the movie]. I love her,” he said to ET.

“Oh, I don’t know about all that,” he said of Amanda calling him a star.

“I love her and I just hope she’s doing well…I’m so happy she’s killing it again and just back on the right. She’s so talented and so special. She’s been doing it…I mean, I think it’s so impossible when you start at such a young age to keep perspective. It’s tough,” he said.

“She was just so alive. You never knew what was going to come out her mouth, she was just on fire…I haven’t seen her in so long. I love you, Amanda, and I hope you’re doing well,” he added.
