Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum have been photographed out together multiple times this week, and now a source is confirming to Entertainment Tonight what the photos only suggested: Tatum and Kravitz are a full-fledge couple. Tatum himself confirmed the news pretty subtly on his Instagram. He is now following four Zoë Kravitz fan accounts. He also follows Kravitz’s Instagram.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that things escalated between the two over time: “Zoë and Channing are dating. It started out as a friendship and eventually turned to be more. The duo was recently spotted at a restaurant in New York City being very affectionate.”
Tatum following multiple Kravitz fan accounts is the closest thing to a statement that Kravitz and Tatum themselves have made about their personal relationship.
Kravitz did speak glowingly about Tatum and working with him on her directorial debut Pussy Island during a June Deadline interview.
“Chan was my first choice [for the male lead role of a tech billionaire], the one I thought of when I wrote this character,” Kravitz said. “I just knew from Magic Mike and his live shows, I got the sense he’s a true feminist and I wanted to collaborate with someone who was clearly interested in exploring this subject matter.”
Tatum had similarly rosy praise for Kravitz. He said in the same interview, “When Zoë called me about this, I was shocked. I didn’t know her. I’d watched her in movies, knew she produced High Fidelity and had seen that, but I didn’t know she was creating on a level like this, where she wanted to direct. This came out of nowhere and the subject matter made me say, wait, why are you thinking about me for this? No one gives me a chance to play a role like this, everybody throws me down a different alley and expects me to do a certain thing. It was scary and liberating, just to be able to have a free conversation, where I was allowed to mess up, and say the wrong things. It became less about men and women and on more of a human thing that will open people’s eyes, rather than us drawing lines in the sand, the you’re a man, I’m a woman, it’s us against you thing. This goes deeper in a direction I’m fascinated by and I’m interested in seeing how people receive this and break it down in their own lives. And what they think the movie means and how would they have made decisions.”
