Channing Tatum Has Responded To Amanda Bynes Claiming She Launched His Career

This is the friendship we never knew we needed.

Amanda Bynes recently opened up in a tell-all interview with Paper magazine where she discussed drug abuse and her film She’s The Man, the film she blames for sending her into a state of depression.

In the interview, Amanda told Paper that she more or less launched her She’s The Man co-star’s career.

“I totally fought for Channing [to get cast in] that movie because he wasn’t famous yet,” she said. “He’d just done a Mountain Dew commercial and I was like, ‘This guy’s a star, every girl will love him!’ But [the producers] were like, ‘He’s so much older than all of you!’ And I was like, ‘It doesn’t matter! Trust me!'”

Channing was asked about Amanda’s comment at the premiere of Magic Mike Live in London on Wednesday. He told Entertainment Tonight that he didn’t really know that’s how it all went down, but he’s thankful to Amanda that it did. “I love her,” he said. “I guess she sort of told me [that she fought to get me in the movie]. I love her.”

He then continued to gush about the star, saying:

“I’m so happy she’s killing it again and just back on the right. She’s so talented and so special. She’s been doing it… I mean, I think it’s so impossible when you start at such a young age to keep perspective. It’s tough,” he said, referring to Amanda’s tough few years.

“She was just so alive,” Channing recalled of her performance in She’s the Man. “You never knew what was going to come out her mouth, she was just on fire… I haven’t seen her in so long. I love you, Amanda, and I hope you’re doing well.”

WHY IS HE SO SWEET? We need a reunion ASAP.
