Is Jamie Foxx jealous of the attention Channing Tatum was getting from the ladies during the White House Down promotional tour? According to a new report from the National Enquirer, he was.
Um…ok. Apparently, Foxx has played ‘second fiddle’ to Tatum throughout the entire promotional tour, and he wasn’t happy about it. A source explains, “Fans at the premiere in Washington, D.C., were practically shoving Jamie out of the way to get a picture with Channing. Jamie isn’t used to that. He’s usually the star of the show everywhere he goes. And the questions that reporters asked Jamie most frequently were, ‘What’s it like to work with Channing?’ or ‘Have you seen Channing’s new baby yet?’ It’s made Jamie feel like chopped liver!”
This ‘source’ adds, “Channing will talk to anyone about anything at any time. Producers love him because that helps sell movies, but actors like Jamie think it’s grandstanding. Still, Jamie says while Channing may be the hunk of the month, he’s the one with an Oscar on his mantle!”
Have these ‘sources’ even met Jamie Foxx, for crying out loud? This is the guy who came up with ‘Channing All Over Your Tatum’! This story is ridiculous, and for anyone who’s ever met Foxx or even heard any of his interviews, the idea that he would think he’s better than someone because of a freaking Oscar is ludicrous. There’s also the fact that Channing and Jamie are very, very good friends, and also very supportive of each other’s careers. This is hogwash. If you’re going to be make up a gossipy story about Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, you’re going to have to try a lot, lot harder than that.
