Jenna Dewan-Tatum Is a ‘Third Wheel’ to Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill [Video]

Jenna talks about being the third wheel in her husband’s bromance with Hill.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum appeared on Jimmy Kimmel show on Monday night and discussed the recent comments made by her husband, actor Channing Tatum, about “22 Jump Street” costar Jonah Hill.

Earlier this month, Channing Tatum spoke about his pal Jonah Hill to Entertainment Weekly and said, “If I wasn’t with my wife, and Jonah had lady parts, I would probably ask him out.”

In another radio interview the 34-year-old actor also claimed: “[Jonah] wants to be with my wife and that’s not cool,” he said. “We’ve already had this conversation a couple of times and he always gets really awkward.”

The mother-of-one joked about her hubby’s comments and said she feels like “the third wheel”

“I went to set the next day,” the actress revealed to Kimmel, “and people were saying: ‘Oh, did you hear Jonah’s in love with you?’ and ‘Jonah’s crushing!’ And I’m like ‘Wait! What?’ I’m the third wheel, they have the most amazing bromance.”

“We’re all friends, this whole cast, we hang out all the time,” she explained. “They [Channing and her male costars] are, like, really good friends, so it’s even more awkward. ‘Yeah, we have this love scene, but we were just hangin’ with our wives and husbands…’ It’s acting, you know—it’s weird.”

In another radio interview the 34-year-old actor also joked: “[Jonah] wants to be with my wife and that’s not cool,” he said. “We’ve already had this conversation a couple of times and he always gets really awkward.”

The topic came up when the duo, who are currently promoting 22 Jump Street, were asked what they would gift each other, with Jonah, 30, immediately exclaiming “I can tell you what I want!”

However, Magic Mike star protested: “I am not going to gift him my wife, no matter what he asks and what he’s going to give me for it. It’s just what’s not going to happen.”

The beautiful brunette currently stars as modern-day sorceress Freya Beauchamp in Witches Of East End, while Channing has five upcoming projects on his slate, says the Daily Mail.

Jenna and Channing, who met on the set of “Step Up”, welcomed their first child, daughter Everly, last May while the handsome actor was filming his movie Jupiter Ascending in the UK. The couple decided to up sticks to a rural location following the birth of their little girl – an experience which Jenna still remembers vividly.

“I actually had a really great pregnancy, I was very hippy dippy. I was like, I’m not watching anything scary, nothing intense… I even watched [TV show] Dateline,” she recalled.

“You don’t cross your wife when you’re pregnant, [Channing] went along with it. But we found out he was filming in London so we were like, I’m gonna have the baby in London and so after we had the baby we went to a cottage which was like in the middle of nowhere in England.

“There was hardly any furniture, there was no wi-fi, nothing in this house but a TV with three channels and one of the channels was called the Really channel, which should’ve been the ‘Really?’ channel cos it was crazy.”
