Channing Tatum Praises Zoë Kravitz's Directorial Debut: "She's Just Killing It"

From one director to another, Channing Tatum is “in awe” of how hard his girlfriend, Zoë Kravitz, is working on her forthcoming film, “Pussy Island.” In a July interview with Entertainment Tonight, the “Lost City” actor praised Kravitz’s directorial debut, saying, “She’s doing better than I did on our first movie with ‘Dog.’ I mean, jeez, we barely survived and she’s just killing it.”

Tatum, who stars in and produces Kravitz’s movie, went on to share that he’s playing a character named Slater King. Though he notes “Pussy Island” is a “completely categorically different thing” from his previous projects, the actor admits he’s flattered he’ll be seen in a different light in Kravitz’s film. “She’s got a weird gift for that,” Tatum added. “She sees right through a lot of people’s stuff and really, just who they are to her is really simple. She’s one of the more intentional people I’ve ever met in my life.”

In a previous interview with Variety, Tatum said he smartly advised the “Batman” star not to take on an acting role while directing a film for the first time. “I was like, ‘You’ll need double the days,'” he recalled. “She’s a perfectionist in the best possible way.” Tatum’s comments are based on some of the difficulties he faced while starring in and codirecting his film “Dog,” which debuted in theaters on Feb. 18.
