We’ll never get enough of celebrities fangirling over the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team because the Final Five are obviously all kinds of awesome sauce. By now, we’ve all witnessed Simone Biles openly pining over Zac Efron, and now one of her celebrity fans has returned the favor with equal enthusiasm. During his recent appearance on Ellen, Channing Tatum totally freaked out over meeting Biles in what was one of the most adorable celebrity encounters ever.
Tatum, who was on the talk show to discuss the upcoming Magic Mike Live show in Vegas (we’re so there), playfully warned DeGeneres that he was totally going to lose it when he finally came face-to-face with Biles.
“I’m gonna freak out,” he said. After pegging Biles as “one of the greatest,” Tatum tried to explain the madness behind Biles’ medal-winning method.
Um, OK. Whatever you say, Channing.
Although Tatum didn’t blush as hard as he did during Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s sexy lap dance on Lip Sync Battle, he was clearly beyond excited to meet Biles, who eagerly posed for a selfie and let him hold her medals.
Yep, they’re pretty much BFFs for life.
