There’s still time to enjoy the summer. Some claim that riding a bike together is more intimate than other activities (“it’s just like riding a bike!”), so it’s no surprise that Zo Kravitz and Channing Tatum were photographed doing precisely that in the streets of New York City this August.
The fact that Tatum stars in Zo Kravitz’s directorial debut, in which she also appears, has made rumours of a possible friendship between the two actors all the more entertaining. Pussy Island is its unofficial moniker. Kravitz co-wrote the screenplay, and the film also stars Naomi Ackie.
Variety reports that Ackie will play Frida, a young and savvy Los Angeles cocktail waitress who has her sights set on philanthropist and tech magnate Slater King (Tatum). Once she successfully gains entry into King’s inner circle and, later, an intimate meeting on his private island, she is prepared for the adventure of a lifetime.
Frida senses that there is more to this island than its spectacular scenery, attractive locals, endless champagne, and wild nightlife. Something that eludes her explanation at the moment. There’s something awful here. PUSSY! ISLAND!
They are either mocking the cameras and their admirers who assume they are dating, or they are the newest It couple in Hollywood. Bennifer, please make room. We’ve compiled everything we know about it here.
After divorcing her husband Karl Glusman in December, reports began to circulate that the High Fidelity star, who will next be seen as Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman, had picked the affable himbo Tatum as her latest boyfriend. Yet in January, a reliable source dispels the rumors.
In an interview for Deadline, Kravitz and Tatum complement one another in their performances. For the role of the tech tycoon, “Chan was my first option, the one I thought of when I wrote this character,” Kravitz stated.
I wanted to work with someone who was obviously interested in investigating this subject matter, and I got the sense from Magic Mike and his live concerts that he is a true feminist. In the same vein, Tatum gushed over Kravitz. It came as a complete surprise to me when Zo called me to tell me the news.
The truth is, I had never heard of her. I’d seen her in movies, and I knew she produced High Fidelity, which I also saw, but I had no idea she was an artist on this level, much less that she wanted to direct. This completely caught me off guard, and the nature of the topic caused me to wonder, “Why am I even being considered for this?”
Every time I try to audition for a part like this, I get thrown into a different lane with different expectations. Scary as it was to have an open dialogue where I could say whatever I wanted, without fear of repercussions, it felt really freeing.

Tatum and Kravitz are seen “strolling” through the East Village before the latter gets on a BMX bike and the former stands on the pegs behind him. You can see images and read more about it on Page Six.
I do have one suggestion, though: Please doesn’t forget to wear helmets. All of this is in New York City. The wilderness is full of danger. In any case, what the heck!

The following day, High Fidelity’s Jena Malone is caught smiling heartily in a gorgeous blue slip dress after hearing something so humorous from Tatum.

A reliable source has confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that their romance is for real. I’ve heard that Zoe and Channing are dating. There was friendship at first, then it developed into something more. They were seen holding hands and kissing at a restaurant in New York City.
If the rumors are real, then Jenna Dewan, Tatum’s ex-wife, has no problem with it. The insider continued, “She wants the best for Channing and hopes that he is well and happy, but she doesn’t get involved in who he dates.” She ends the conversation there.

The two are captured on camera once again as they explore the streets of New York City, this time on their way to meet a third buddy for lunch. Take a look at the pictures here. Apparently, Tatum followed four Zo Kravitz fan accounts, validating the claims. This might be a subtle confirmation of his relationship with her, or he could simply be curious in what all the hubbub is about.

TMZ asked, “Are these two the next Kourt and Trav?” According to People, Zo and Channing will attend an Alicia Keys-hosted after-party on Monday, September 13 following their attendance at the 2021 Met gala.
According to the information we have, that’s when things started to get physical. The couple “did not take their hands off of one other,” a source told People.

The couple “did not take their hands off of one other,” a source told People. The public display of affection between Zo Kravitz and Channing Tatum appears to be heating up just as the temperature begins to drop. The suspected pair holding hands and strolling across New York City.
Kravitz’s stepfather Jason Momoa and her boyfriend impromptu travel to see the world premiere of Zo’s new film The Batman.
Page Six reports that the casts of Batman and Step Up are still active. According to those close to Kravitz, the two are planning their future together and are getting very serious. The insider continued, “She is in a fantastic situation career-wise and he has a good reputation as a dad, so things are going great with Channing and she is really happy.”
According to the same source, the director of Pussy Island “wouldn’t mind having one kid” but is in no hurry to start a family. Given Kravitz’s track record, though, it’s best to approach that information with caution.
When asked when she planned to start a family, Kravitz said, “I actually get insulted by people presuming that’s something that I have to do because society says so,” as heard on Dax Shepard‘s podcast Armchair Expert from 2020.
Because of my job and because, dude, I don’t know, I like my free time, “I’m certainly not in a situation right now where I think I’m able to do that.”
