Looks like Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum are more than colleagues.
The pair have been spotted on several outings in New York City over the past month, demonstrating their affinity for iced lattes and the Magic Mike actor’s love of BMX bikes. The sightings have ranged from casual to close, with the duo sharing a bike ride one day and shopping for toilet paper and fresh flowers on another. But there’s been zero PDA, leaving us wondering whether they’re actually dating or we’re just projecting.
According to People, though, the pair are the real deal. A source confirmed the relationship to the outlet, saying that Kravitz and Tatum are “inseparable.”

“They spent the weekend in N.Y.C., strolled around the city, met up with friends and visited the Guggenheim Museum,” the source said. “They looked very happy. They have this cute and flirty chemistry.”
The relationship appears to have Hollywood buzzing, too, with multiple insiders spilling about the couple.
“Zoë thinks Channing has depth both as an actor and a person,” one industry source told People. Another source told the outlet, “Channing likes that she is independent and outspoken as well as bright.”
The couple first connected professionally to work on Kravitz’s directorial debut, Pussy Island. Kravitz told Deadline last June that Tatum was her first choice for the male lead, an eccentric tech billionaire, and that the pair have been developing the character together.
“Chan was my first choice, the one I thought of when I wrote this character,” she shared. “I just knew from Magic Mike and his live shows, I got the sense he’s a true feminist and I wanted to collaborate with someone who was clearly interested in exploring this subject matter.”
Tatum told the outlet that he was surprised when Kravitz contacted him. “When Zoë called me about this, I was shocked. I didn’t know her. I’d watched her in movies, knew she produced High Fidelity and had seen that, but I didn’t know she was creating on a level like this, where she wanted to direct.”
He continued, “This came out of nowhere and the subject matter made me say, wait, why are you thinking about me for this? No one gives me a chance to play a role like this, everybody throws me down a different alley and expects me to do a certain thing. It was scary and liberating, just to be able to have a free conversation, where I was allowed to mess up, and say the wrong things.”
