Channing Tatum pranked Rachel McAdams with a prosthetic “pee pee” on set

ET Online has interviews (you can watch the videos here, the embed wasn’t working right) with the stars of the upcoming romantic amnesia movie, The Vow. It’s about a young wife (Rachel McAdams) who suffers amnesia after a car accident and has to get to know, and date, her husband (Channing Tatum) all over again. It opens February 10 and it definitely looks cheesy but I’ll probably see it with my best friend at the movies. I not-so-secretly loved Dear John, and while you know exactly what to expect with these type of movies I still enjoy seeing a good romantic film. (Note: I assumed this was based off a Nicholas Sparks book, but it’s not, it’s roughly based on a real story.) Plus Channing Tatum is just so nice to watch and he’s old enough that I don’t feel guilty finding him hot.

The best story that Channing told on ET is about how he pranked Rachel McAdams by having a prosthetic dick made and surprising her with it during a scene. Channing was characteristically low key when he described this story, and then the interview cut to a segment with Rachel, in which she explains that he planned the prank a full month in advance with the props department. What’s more is that Rachel’s genuine reaction to the prop peen was captured on camera and will be used in the movie. (Probably when her character sees her husband naked for the first time. I would say spoiler, but come on, we all know the ending.)

Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams must rediscover love after an accident causes Rachel’s character to lose her memory in The Vow, and Channing tells ET that he decided to pull a practical joke on her during a nude scene!

“I did have a stunt pee pee that I had made for her for her reaction,” says Channing of the scene in which Rachel is surprised by her naked co-star walking into their bedroom. “It was a little prank that I pulled on her. It’s in the movie – her reaction was spot on. I didn’t have a lot of faith in her reaction because it was cold that day, and I didn’t want her to be laughing and pointing. I wanted her to be shocked.”

“A prosthetic, yes, that’s all true,” says Rachel with a laugh, recounting how Channing went to the prop department ahead of time to fabricate “a piece to terrify Rachel with.” She adds, “But it was great because I didn’t have to pretend … it was funny and got a genuine reaction out of me.”

Channing adds, “I’m not shy about being naked, obviously, as you can see in most of my movies.”

I would say this is creepy, but it sounds like it was called for in the scene and like she’s fine with it. It obviously lead to a good reaction for the shot.

Later in the interview, they ask Channing for a moment in his life that he never wants to forget, and he tells the story about how he first said “I love you” to his wife, Jenna Dewan, in an offhand way and got really embarrassed. I thought this story was so adorable and you could see how much he loves her.

On being romantic
“I don’t think it’s that hard to show someone that you care. To come in and be like ‘how as your day?’ Make it about them. Do something cute… draw a picture or a story and put it in her purse or something.”

On the moment he never wants to forget
“The first time that I accidentally told her that I loved her I didn’t mean to. I was on the phone with her, I was like ‘alright cool, love you… that’s awkward I’m going to hang up now.'”

Jenna and Channing are great together and I hope they make it last for a very long time. I also hope this movie is somewhat decent and does well at the box office. Both the leads are just so damn likable.

Update: I just saw this story on Buzz Sugar that Channing Tatum is going to host SNL this weekend for the first time. They had this preview video with Fred Armisen (below), but it doesn’t get good until the very end.

Here’s the trailer. My favorite comment on YouTube is this one “if you woke up and channing tatum said he was your husband… YOU DONT QUESTION THAT SH*T!”

    Very funny, but I hate when grown men call a penis a pee pee.

    • Lisa says:

      Exactly. Or write p3nis.

    • originalone says:

      It’s their calculated way to attract the 13 year-old crowd.

      BTW, how surprising is Channing Tatum? Because of his built and his accent, and slow drawl, people expect him to be an absolute meathead.

      Which he is not. At all. Either he is playing the Hollywood game to perfection; or he is a genuinely nice man with a bit of genius for getting movies made.

      It must be somewhere in between: You cannot act all the time that cool and nice, and very accidently get all these roles. I believe he likes surprising people, because of his physique and drawl, have very low expectations of him. I’m liking him a lot. Let’s see what happens, because with time, it becomes very hard to maintain that good ol’ boy charm, and not pull your weight around to get things done YOUR way.

    • Abby says:

      Hey… I still call it a pee pee (I’m 30), but its only when I’m talking to my 9 year old son. : )

  2. shawna says:

    That’s right don’t question that shit!!! 0_0

  3. Abby says:

    he is adorable! And so is she. Love them both. He’s so in love with his wife–it’s great!

  4. LBeees says:

    I think he is actually hilarious and a pretty good (not great, but solid) actor. I do love Rachel McAdams as well.

    So if I can find a GF, we’re going to go see this.

  5. EBitch says:

    She is SO gorgeous. I do not see her in a movie with him, though. He’s just not attractive.

  6. Girl says:

    I’m genuinely curious to see how impressive this “pee-pee” is. And I do mean the prosthetic on.

    P.S. I love how the ad on this page for me right now is for a new Pepe Le Pew DVD coming out soon.

  7. Jezi says:

    I think he’s absolutely adorable. Him and his wife are so cute together. I’ve loved Rachel McAdams since she was in the Hot Chick. LOL.

  8. Asli says:

    That was the cutest! LOL. ”I didn’t mean to”, that’s guys for ya.

  9. Reece says:

    IDKY but I like this guy. He’s not that attractive to me. I don’t think I’ve seen any of his movies either. I read interviews and stuff and he seems to be cool. Not up his own arse. I like that. I kinda wanna see The Vow.

  10. The Original Mia says:

    I love him. He’s not the best actor in the world, but he’s earnest and funny. He & Jenna are adorable together.

  11. Carly says:

    I was never a big fan of Channing Tatum but he’s coming off more likable with every interview I read and see. When I first heard that Rachel was going to be in a movie with him, I really disliked the idea because I’m not a fan of his acting but he’s so likable and so is she, so it’s kind of hard not to wish them success. I hope the movie does well. We should be cheering for the nice ones in Hollywood right?

  12. Mirella says:

    My crush on him started with the Mountain Dew commercial. I hope he & Jenna make it, I love them.

  13. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Hearting him, Hearting two Nicholas Sparks icons, hearting Channa, and hearting this movie.

    On a serious note CB, I expect to see a post on Don Cornelius ASAP. That man is an American icon an he needs a post so we can wax poetic about our Soul Train memories.

  14. Nanz says:

    “Can someone call my mom?” had me ROTFL. I couldn’t stop laughing after that. Very funny. I had no opinion of him before this. Now I kind of like him. Cute.

  15. Amanda G says:

    LOL I love that YouTube quote! He is a terrible actor but he’s tall, built and seemed to be charming! I might end up seeing this because of that! Rachel on the other hand…I’m over her. She was so so bad in Morning Glory and not that great in Midnight In Paris.

  16. Rhiley says:

    Google images Channing Tatum in his underwear. He doesn’t need to worry about anybody pointing and laughing because it is cold.
