Jimmy Kimmel asked Channing Tatum to recall the most memorable aspect of working with acclaimed film director Ron Howard, and Tatum replied that it involved being “bent over and taken from behind in a very sexual way” by Howard.
Tatum, who stars in The Dilemma, told Kimmel about the hands-on way Howard blocked out one of his intimate scenes with Winona Ryder, and how it made him feel.
“I can probably, honestly say, that I am one of the few, if not the only one, ever on the planet, as a male, has been bent over and taken from behind in a very sexual way by Ron Howard.”
Tatum added that Howard was “gentle,” as if he “had done it before.”
The Dilemma also stars Vince Vaughn, whose character says, "Electric cars are gay." The line drew criticism from voices including the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and Anderson Cooper in the fall at the height of coverage surrounding LGBT teen suicides. Universal Studios removed the line from the trailer, but the company and Howard have refused to delete the line from the film.
Watch the interview with Kimmel. Tatum recounts the story around the 1:00 mark.
