Jenna Dewan-Tatum: Messy Husband Channing Tatum

Actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum joined Ellen for the very first time, and she was extra-excited to be there! She had visited the show with her husband, Channing Tatum, but had never sat in the hot seat next to Ellen. “But in my mind, we have been best friends for a very long time,” Jenna told Ellen.

Jenna met her husband, Channing, on the set of the dance movie Step Up. As both Jenna and Channing are former dancers turned actors, they initially had a lot to bond over. They have been together for seven years, and married for three. Jenna said that by Hollywood marriage standards, that’s the equivalent of twenty years! She was happy to report that they are a very loving, genuine couple.

However, Jenna admitted that both she and Channing are very messy people. Ellen shared a picture of their bathroom vanity, which had what looked like the contents of an entire department store beauty section stored on their counter. Of course, all of the mess is Jenna’s, but she revealed that Channing likes to strip down and leave his clothes all over the house. “Oh, you poor thing,” Ellen joked.

Jenna’s latest film finds her once again starring alongside her husband. They play a couple in the new film Ten Years, which finds them traveling to Channing’s character’s ten year high school reunion. There, Jenna’s character meets her boyfriend’s old high school buddies for the first time, and Rosario Dawson plays his old flame. Jenna said that the ensemble comedy is a very fun movie, and it’s playing in select theaters right now.

Ellen didn’t know this until now, but Jenna had written into the Ellen show a while back, because she is such a huge fan. Jenna is a vegan too, and she was inspired to share a recipe with Ellen. She also read from the letter, which began with, “Dear Ellen, I think we should be best friends!”

Jenna called her vegan enchiladas “the one and only meal that I can make.” Ellen tried them, and said that they were spicy and delicious. She promised to put the recipe on her official website.
