Channing Tatum has a bunch of new movies headed our way, including the upcoming ’22 Jump Street’. The star of ‘Magic Mike’ recently open up to ‘GQ’ in an interview about a wild drunken night he spent with troubled (?) star Shia LaBeouf.
It was 2006 at the time and the two were filming ‘A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints’.
“Me and Shia, I think we had just met that day. We were, like, ‘What shall we go out and do?’ We were drinking. And I think our initial thing was ‘Alright, let’s go out and try and get in a fight!’ This was just young, dumb, idiot actors thinking that that’s going to bond us. Because we’ll shed blood together, blah blah, blah. I’ve never seen him since then.”
According to LaBeouf in a previous interview with ‘GQ’ in which he delineates the wild night, Tatum had allegedly smashed the glass window of a bookstore to steal a Spider-Man bookmark. Apparently, it set off the security system and the young actors fled the scene.
At the time, Tatum’s rep stated that LaBeouf’s story was “inaccurate”. However, Tatum did own up to committing vandalism that night in his latest interview.
“I definitely kicked in a window that night,” Tatum stated. “But it wasn’t a Barnes and Nobles. Just a window. I was running.”
He continues, “We were just running and being hoodlums and throwing trash bags down streets and being stupid. We were trying to be like 80s hoodlums. And I think as we were running I kicked this thing, not thinking it would ever shatter. And everything just went raining down. And I was like, ‘Oh, s–t.’ And then we just took off running. We all split up. I think Shia even punched a cop car– we weren’t even sure if the cop was in the car, he punched the window of a cop car. It was pandemonium. It was just one of those nights that the volume just keeps getting turned up, turned up, turned up. And we all split up. We all just ran in opposite directions. I didn’t hide under a car, I dove in some trash bags: ‘I’m sitting here for a little while’”.
“In hindsight it’s the funniest thing in the world – just typical actors trying too hard. It’s only fun because we didn’t get caught… that I can have perspective on it now and know it was stupid. I don’t think we were thinking.”
Hey, at least they didn’t get caught.
And, more importantly, at least they didn’t get behind the wheel!
