Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan were one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood. But were is the keyword to focus on here, as the two recently announced their separation. The two found each other on the set of the movie Step Up, which also ended up being a huge stepping stone in the career of Channing.
The two stayed close throughout the ups and downs of Hollywood and in 2009, tied the knot. It was in 2013 that their family grew when Jenna gave birth to their daughter Everly who turns 5 at the end of May. They seemed as in love with each other as ever and a couple that everyone should strive to be, with Channing going as far as to describe themselves as animals when the bedroom door closed.
But Channing Tatum is now out of his cage and free to do his best to seduce all the people who come his way. This time, people, is the key word as there have been reports in the past that Channing may be open to playing for both teams.
Something that if he chooses to embrace, he would surely find himself not lacking in attention. Though he may want to start with Jude Law, who he once said made him feel sweaty to think about. He wouldn't be the only celebrity to hide their orientation, as others, like Jake Gyllenhaal, have also had rumors circulate about what way he swings in the past.
Regardless of the gender of some of Tatum's stunning former co-stars, many of them have also found themselves single at the moment. Which means that Tatum may be sitting at home by the phone hoping that they reach out to offer their condolences!
These are the 15 females and 5 males who may be willing to step up to the challenge of trying to seduce Channing Tatum.
20 Halle Berry
If we're being upfront, one of the more disappointing movies of the last year was the sequel to Kingsman. The film scored 52% on Rotten Tomatoes in comparison to the original's 74%. But it still made over $100 million at the box office which means that another film isn't that unlikely to expect. And one of the parts of the film that nobody seemed to mind was the addition of Halle Berry and Channing Tatum's characters, who would surely get fleshed out if the series returns.
While their screentime in the 2nd one was limited, we're sure the two talented actors still spent plenty of time together getting prepared for the role.
Berry has been married before on 3 different occasions but currently finds herself single. Which means she'd probably not hate the idea of her phone blowing up with Channing Tatum on the other end.
19 Amber Heard
If Channing Tatum was trying to win over a potential woman, there is no question that he'd have to make sure she saw him in Magic Mike and the sequel Magic Mike XXL. While it may set the bar pretty high for himself to reach, it's not like he's in "bad shape" when not filming scenes for the steamy series.
But as amazing as Tatum looked on the screen, can you imagine how tantalizing he may have seemed up close and personal?
Tatum's relationship always made sure the rule employed was that people were welcome to look but don't touch, but we wouldn't be stunned if his co-star Amber Heard was definitely tempted at times!
Both now single after her divorce from Johnny Depp, perhaps Tatum is sitting at home hoping he gets to say he heard from Heard.
18 Courteney Cox
When a Hollywood couple splits up, there are always going to be rumours as to what it was that caused them to go their separate ways.
One of the first rumours that are emerging in the Tatum divorce is the belief that while Jenna loves the bright lights of Hollywood, Channing is far more comfortable back in his home state of Alabama.
Which we're sure he'll especially feel now considering there is a lot less paparazzi attention there than in Hollywood. If he does want to bunk up with another Alabama native who may share his line of thinking, none may be more alluring than Friends star Courteney Cox. Especially considering it appears that Cox has no interest in returning to the world of acting and may be looking to embrace the quieter things in life.
There are many qualities that Channing Tatum has that make it understandable why women consider him to be one of the best looking men in Hollywood. But even if you can't see what Tatum is wearing, his voice-over work has still landed him several lucrative roles in the past.
This includes an upcoming Warner Brother's animated film Smallfoot that see's many amazing actors coming together. None of whom may be as enamoured with Tatum as Zendaya.
There are rumors that she is with Tom Holland, but all that should prove is that she isn't against going after her co-stars!
And while Tom may have the added bonus of getting to be in a Marvel movie, it's not like Tatum's body would seem too out of place beside some of the other big names in the superhero universe.
16 Jennifer Jason Leigh
In comparison to Jennifer Jason Leigh, Channing Tatum's role in The Hateful Eight is fairly small. But when Quentin Tarantino gives you a phone call and asks you to be in his latest project, that's definitely a call that you are going to want to say yes too regardless of how much screen time you have.
But perhaps Tatum can call up Jennifer, who was one of the leads, and say he was watching the movie again and was struck by how amazing she was.
Then he asks how her boyfriend is doing, but wait, she doesn't have a boyfriend. She knows he's single. And the next thing you know, the two are picking out a new mansion to live in together because let's be honest celebrity relationships don't exactly move at the same speed as regular folks!
15 Demi Lovato
Now there may be a very serious issue that emerges if Demi Lovato and Channing Tatum got on a more personal basis. Demi has been very upfront about her past history and her clean-living.
Tatum, on the other hand, was once quoted as saying back in 2014 during an interview with GQ,
"I probably drink too much, you know. There's probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time."
We don't know if Tatum would still stand by those words, but if he can put the bottle down, he may come away with a stunning new lady by his side.
14 Jenny Slate
If Channing Tatum wants to get too serious with Jenny Slate, he may have to go through Captain America. Chris Evans and Slate were together for years and while they're no longer linked, all signs prove to the fact that they have at the very least, an amicable friendship.
But Slate definitely has Tatum's number, as the two worked closely together on a recent television series Comrade Detective.
The two also both appeared in The Lego Batman Movie together where Slate was Harley Quinn and Tatum was Superman. While some men may be intimidated about going up against Evans who along with being a terrific person is very good looking, at least you know Tatum has plenty of reasons to also feel confident in his abilities!
13 Sienna Miller
There are some movies where Channing Tatum isn't exactly working very hard to be serious, such as in the 21 Jump Street series. But Tatum taps into a whole new side of himself as an actor in the critically-acclaimed drama Foxcatcher where he plays a U.S. Olympic wrestling champion. The movie also allows audiences to see a much more dramatic side of Steve Carell who you may best recognize from 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Office.
Tatum's performance received rave reviews including from his co-stars who were surely impressed. One of whom is the very available, Sienna Miller.
And as long as Tatum doesn't get it in his head that he should go after the nanny, he should be okay. Miller had that situation already with Jude Law.
12 Winona Ryder
There are many attractive people on our list who have also had the opportunity to work with Channing Tatum in the past. As a result, they may jump out at him when he starts thinking about potential people to call up. That's not the case for Winona Ryder. But that's not to say that they haven't both done incredibly well for themselves.
Ryder's career is perhaps at an all-time best due to her tremendous performance in Stranger Things, something that the whole world has taken notice of.
Which means that being able to open up a conversation with Ryder where Tatum mentions how fantastic she is should be pretty easy. Then she mentions she loved him in Magic Mike and it is on like Donkey Kong!
11 Hilary Swank
One of Channing Tatum's most impressive performances came in 2017 with the film Logan Lucky. The film scored 93% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
Tatum lit up the screen with several fantastic females, but the only eligible one and therefore perhaps the most appealing of them all is Hilary Swank.
Because while Tatum may be able to seduce a married woman, nobody would blame him if he prefers to set his eyes on women that are single and ready to mingle.
Swank has remained out of the public spotlight for a majority of the last two years after announcing she had ended her engagement to Ruben Torres. If Katie Holmes who was also in the film, finds herself straying from Jamie Foxx, she may also be a very appealing potential partner.
10 Alexandra Daddario
If you had to start listing off the most muscular heartthrobs in Hollywood, Zac Efron is going to come up before you get too far down that list. But so is Channing Tatum.
Which means that Alexandra Daddario, who has recently been spotted with Zac, may also have no problems also bumping it up with Tatum.
Though not many women in Hollywood would exactly race to reject that phone call if Zac or Channing came calling.
It's possible that Daddario may find herself off the market soon, but if you consider that the reports of Daddario and Efron getting together are still in their early stages, it may indicate that it is not too late for Tatum to swoop in. Things just may get awkward if Daddario started ghosting Efron's calls!
9 Alyssa Milano
When Channing Tatum was asked by Elle who the first celebrity he found himself crushing on, he was very emphatic in his answer of Alyssa Milano, who he said he also had a pin-up poster of.
"She was it, man. I'd love to run into her. I'm pretty sure I'd geek out. Isn't she married?"
We're sure this was the point in the interview when the reporter did let Tatum know that Milano has been married since 2009. Ironically, the same year he and Jenna tied the knot. But unlike him and Jenna, Milano and her man Dave Bugliari are still going strong.
If things get rocky though, as marriages in Hollywood tend to do, Tatum may be more than comfortable in making her feel desired.
8 Lindsey Stirling
As a violinist and composer, Lindsey Stirling may not have been the biggest name to appear on the latest season of Dancing With the Stars. Especially when you consider other celebrities included Nikki Bella, Terrell Owens, and even Frankie Muniz.
But of all the celebrities that appeared on the show, Lindsey may be the one who stood out the most to Tatum.
After all, she was the best female celebrity dancer on the show - making it all the way to #2 before losing to Jordan Fisher and his professional partner, Lindsay Arnold.
But while Lindsay Arnold may be married, Lindsey Stirling is single. And considering Tatum's love of dance as shown by the Step Up franchise and Magic Mike, she may just who he's looking for.
7 Emilia Clarke
If you're a single actor in Hollywood, you aren't doing your due diligence if you don't at least mull over the idea of trying to get intimate with Emilia Clarke. Arguably the most popular actress in Hollywood, Clarke has been largely quiet about per personal life.
Though Seth MacFarlane, who Tatum worked with on Logan Lucky did date Clarke in the past. Perhaps that means that Tatum would be able to call up Seth and ask for her number!
Let's just hope he'd give her a positive recommendation as a girlfriend. At the very least, it's clear that both Clarke and Tatum don't mind showing off some skin for a role; something that both of them may appreciate getting an up-close show of.
6 Jennifer Aniston
The world is definitely left reeling from the break-up between Channing Tatum and Jenna. But this is far from the only time a divorce from famed celebrities has shocked headlines. This includes Jennifer Aniston who separated from Justin Theroux earlier this year.
While Justin has rumours that he may be now hooking up with Parks and Recreation star, Aubrey Plaza, Jennifer is still keeping things pretty low-key.
Perhaps she was just sitting back and waiting to see if any eligible men were going to appear on the scene! Reports are that Channing and his wife had been having problems for months, something that we're sure Jen will be able to relate to! Who knows, maybe the next tabloid headline will be The One Where Aniston Seduces Tatum.
5 Jude Law
Channing Tatum didn't hold back when he was asked by Entertainment Tonight about if he had developed a man crush on his co-star from the movie Side Effects, Jude Law.
"I completely do. I'm getting a bit sweaty thinking about it."
Which to be fair, Jude Law is a pretty terrific actor and he is pretty fantastic in the movie. That being said, comments like that make it seem like the most memorable experience for Tatum of the entire filming process was being able to get up-close to Law and definitely don't do much to de-fuel rumors that he enjoys both genders.
While Tatum wasn't going to leave Jenna for Law at the time (2013), who knows if things would have been different in 2018!
4 Andy Cohen
Andy Cohen is used to talking about the news, not necessarily making it, with his television show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The show has been on the air since 2009 and has gone on to air over 1,200 episodes.
But you can imagine he'd still be comfortable being at the forefront of the news stories, which he surely would be if he started stepping out with Channing Tatum.
Cohen has been out of the closet for years and his contributions to the community should be commended. And while we don't know if Channing Tatum has too much interest in The Real Housewives television series that Cohen is also an executive producer of, we're sure Tatum also will work on projects that aren't exactly up Cohen's alley!
3 Zachary Quinto
Zachary Quinto officially came out of the closet back in 2011. Quinto was quoted by New York magazine as saying,
"There's still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed."
It's tremendous to see an actor who is as dedicated as Quinto is in helping raise awareness to important issues that impact the community that he is a part of.
And while Quinto may not be in as fantastic of shape as Tatum, though to be fair, not many actors are, he's still in great shape! Quinto has been in several relationships, including with Jonathan Groff from 2010-2013 but is currently single.
2 Matt Bomer
Matt Bomer and Channing Tatum definitely enjoyed a close friendship that was fostered by their time together on Magic Mike. When talking about Bomer (and in particular, his blue eyes), Tatum once described him as saying,
"I don't know what they are made of outside of dreams and rainbows and amazingness but it truly doesn't matter. And when he sings. It's like God gave with both hands and then grew a third hand and graced him with more. He's crazy talented."
Bomer was more than happy to later return the compliment, saying, "I mean, obviously, I blushed. Knowing Channing, and what a kind soul he is, I guess when you're the most handsome man on the planet - and probably the most desired man on the planet - you have the security to give those kinds of compliments. And so, it was great. It made my day, of course! I and the rest of the world feel the same way about him."
The only thing standing in their way is the fact that Bomer has been married since 2011! But hey, marriages crumble, something Tatum is well-aware of.
1 Jake Gyllenhaal
One of the most talked about things in tabloid journals is who someone is dating. This becomes even more talked about if there are potential rumours that the actor may not be swinging for girls. And while Jake Gyllenhaal has had relationships with actresses in the past, he has not been immune to rumours that he enjoys bringing both people back to bed.
When he was once asked about his personal life by TheGuardian, he explained why he prefers to be so private,
"I’m not necessarily guarded, but I consider intimacy to be very important and I don’t think everybody needs to know about my family or my personal details. I’m old school in that way.”
Gyllenhaal is perhaps put at the face of these rumors more often due to his role in Brokeback Mountain with Heath Ledger. While it may be surprising if Jake stepped out with Channing, it would surely be a story that tabloid journalists wouldn't be able to get enough of.
