Channing Tatum Wants to Get 'Matching Vajays' with Nick Zano
By Antoinette Bueno
Talk about a bromance.
Channing Tatum interviews his real-life pal -- One Big Happy star Nick Zano -- for Interview magazine's latest issue, in which the two reveal a whole lot about their friendship. Tatum's choice of questions turn out to be, err ... interesting, for example, when he asks 37-year-old Zano if he could "grow a vagina" for a day, would he do it?
"Sure. How do you not?" Zano replies after clarifying that the change in private parts would only be temporary. "Let's do it at the same time."
As it turns out, the 34-year-old Magic Mike star is totally game.
"I would totally do that with you," he says. "I'd have matching vajays ... I think we should take that to [One Big Happy producer] Ellen [DeGeneres] as a weird recurring dream sequence -- just me and you comparing vaginas."
Clearly, their banter stems from the two's close friendship of over a decade, and the magazine reveals that Zano first met Tatum when they were both just starting out in New York and Tatum was living with one of Zano's friends from home. They’ve definitely had their fair share of bonding moments, including when they decided to drunk dial Zano's grandmother.
"We had a very late night," Zano explains about the three o'clock in the morning phone call. "We don't get to see each other much because of everyone's schedule, so when we do see each other it's a massive make-up of time. So we had a pretty long evening-slash-afternoon into evening and we came home, and I was like, 'You know who we should call? We should call my grandmother!' I believe at this point in the evening, we ordered $35 of McDonalds, which is so much McDonalds."
Zano proceeded to tell her that they killed their friend and didn't know what to do with the body.
"She's panicking: 'Oh, Nicky, what did you do? What have you done, Nicky? What have you done!' and then you're like, 'Don't snitch, Nan, don't snitch!'" Tatum hilariously recalls. "And she's like, 'I'm not a snitch, Nicky!' That was when I turned, and was like, 'I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with this,' because the way that she said, 'I'm not a snitch,' I knew she'd said it before."
But despite the prank call, Zano says his grandmother loves the popular 22 Jump Street star -- perhaps even more than her own grandson.
"By the way, I call her and she asks more about you than she does me," Zano jokes. "She does it so conversationally -- she says, 'By the way, what's Chan up to?' Like she raised you. And I'm like, ‘Chan's doing Chan-s**t. I've got stuff going on!' And she's like, 'Well tell him I said hello and kiss the baby.' Kiss the baby? I'm calling you, lady!"
Though it's hard to fault Zano's grandmother -- Tatum is pretty lovable. ET caught up with him and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum at the Golden Globes in January, when he revealed how he explains his racy Magic Mike XXL moves to his one-year-old daughter Everly.
