Channing Tatum recently appeared on “The EllenDeGeneres” show to talk about his comedy movie, “The Lost City,” which he co-starred in alongside Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt.
For Tatum, working with Pitt was a treat for him. In fact, Pitt served as an inspiration for his character look in the movie.
“I can’t believe I got to work with either one of them,” he began per People. “Brad Pitt, I met him once, I rode motorcycles with him, and again, he’s everything you want him to be.”
He recalled his decision to use Pitt’s style. “I have to wear a wig for my cover model look, and I was like, ‘I want to look like ‘Legends of the Fall’ Brad Pitt. Can you please make me that, make me as close to that as you can make me.”
Tatum added, “He’s so funny. People just don’t know how funny he is. I think he’s done comedies, but nothing as broad. I just love this movie so much, because they don’t make movies like this anymore.”

Sandra Bullock And Channing Tatum’s Daughters Once Fought At Pre-School
In another interview on “The Late Show With James Corden,” Channing sat down with his female co-star Bullock and explained how their children butted heads in school.
According to them, their children got into an altercation to prove who the alpha in their friendship was.
“I’ve blocked it all out,” Tatum replied jokingly, and Bullock added via Insider, “There’s some PTSD attached to it.”
She said, “We met through drama in the principal’s office at pre-school. We were called in together because Everly and Laila were trying to alpha the other one out, and we prayed it was the other’s child that caused the damage.”
Their children have since settled their differences, and their parents explained that filming the movie together gave them a safe space to spend more time together.
“That’s the reason we did this film, so they could have one long, COVID-safe play date. We even brought motorbikes down there. All we cared about is that Everly and Laila were just having the time of their lives,” she concluded.
Tatum also gushed over Bullock, saying, “I think we all have our assumptions on how people are before you meet them, and you’re kind of afraid to meet them because you don’t want them not to be what you hope them to be, and she’s just every bit as lovely as you want her to be.”
Bullock Praised Tatum’s Willpower To Stay In Shape For The Movie
In the same interview, Bullock praised her co-star for being consistent in staying in shape.
He’s disciplined,” she said of Tatum’s ability to stick to his fitness regimen while preparing for a film, as reported by People.” He has incredible willpower.”
Tatum chimed in instantly, “That’s just fear. That’s just fear and ego because you have to be butt naked on screen.”
When Bullock retorted that she never had to be naked on the screen, Tatum mentioned that it was because “you produced it and wrote this thing.”
After the pair shared a laugh, Bullock confessed that he was correct.
