Rebel Wilson Talks Channing Tatum Crush And Straddling Him
Although Rebel’s proven herself as a funny girl in Hollywood, she revealed she’s still got some nerves!
“I’m not used to doing live stuff because I’ve been doing so much movie stuff and when you stuff up you can do another take whereas the movie awards are 100% live so I had Sacha Baron Cohen and Sarah Silverman around last night to try to get some advice because they’re expert comedians and they said, ‘just make stuff up!’”
Although Rebel may be harboring some nerves to host the show, she didn’t look nervous at all when it came to straddling Channing in the promos.

Rebel laughed: “That was remarkably easy, I thought ‘Oh my god.’ I’m going to get super nervous because he’s so hot.” Revealing: “What happened was they said, ‘Who is your biggest A-list celebrity crush?’ And I said, ‘Channing Tatum.”
“And they were like, ‘Oh, Channing wants to do something with you.’ And I was like, ‘Oh god!’ Like half fainted. And then they said, ‘Okay, Rebel, because you’re a comedy writer as well you can write the little thing for you and Channing.’”
“So I’m like, ‘Okay, this puts me in a really good spot. Why don’t I write a couple scenes maybe one I’ll straddle Channing; maybe one I’ll get him to put his hands down my breasts, feel around a bit; and then maybe another one I put my head in his lap.’ And then we sent them to Channing and he actually found them really funny and totally went along with the whole thing and we had the best day filming the whole thing. I couldn’t beleive it, he’s like so awesome and nice.”
“One time when I was straddling I accidentally straddled too hard and I got stuck in between the steering wheel of the limo and Channing and they had to bring three guys to help me. I was just whispering, ‘Channing, I’m so sorry about this.’”
