From director to director, Channing Tatum is “in awe” at how hard his girlfriend Zoë Kravitz is working on her upcoming film, Pussy Island. In a July interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Lost City actor praised Kravitz’s directorial debut, saying, “She’s doing better than me on our first movie with ‘Dog.’ I mean, gosh, we barely survived and she’s just killing it.”
“She’s one of the more conscious people I’ve ever met in my life.”
Tatum, who stars in and produces Kravitz’s film, further shared that he plays a character named Slater King. Though he notes that Pussy Island is a “completely categorical thing” from his previous projects, the actor admits he’s flattered to be seen in a different light in Kravitz’s film. “She has an odd gift for that,” Tatum added. “She sees through a lot of people’s stuff and really who they are to her is really simple. She’s one of the more intentional people I’ve ever met in my life.”
In a previous interview with Variety, Tatum said he wisely advised the Batman star not to take on an acting role while she was directing a film for the first time. “I thought, ‘You’re going to need twice as many days,'” he recalled. “She is a perfectionist in the best sense of the word.” Tatum’s comments are based on some of the difficulties he faced while starring and co-directing his film Dog, which hits theaters February 18.
As for the two stars’ blossoming romance, Tatum and Kravitz reportedly met while filming Pussy Island, although their paths briefly crossed in 2017 when they were discussing roles in The Lego Batman Movie. Following Kravitz’s divorce from Karl Glusman, she and Tatum sparked dating rumors in August 2021 when she was spotted riding a bike through New York City. The pair apparently confirmed their romance on Instagram the same month, when Tatum followed several accounts devoted to Kravitz.
“There’s more than just friendship with Channing and [Kravitz]’ a source told E! news. “They spend a lot of time together and have fun. They’re more than just close friends or co-stars. Their relationship has grown into more.”
A month later, the couple attended the 2021 Met Gala together, with Kravitz wearing a stunning see-through Saint Laurent gown and Tatum in a simple black tuxedo. Then in February, the latter and Kravitz’s stepdad, Jason Momoa, showed up to a screening of The Batman to cheer them on when the Aquaman star posted an Instagram photo of them boarding a plane climbed up and said they were on their way to see our ZOZO.”
