Channing Tatum faces his fear of, er, dolls


Channing Tatum has faced his fear of porcelain dolls on Ellen DeGeneres' show. The actor has previously spoken about how much he dislikes the toys and, in an episode that airs today, the talk show host decided to help him out. In the hope he'd conquer his phobia, Ellen presented the Magic Mike star with two dolls.

'I just imagine when I walk by them, their heads turn with you the whole time'

“I just think they’re really super freaky. They have real eyes and they look real. I just imagine when I walk by them, their heads turn with you the whole time," Channing explained when asked why he hates them so much.

Ellen proceeded to wave the scariest doll - with gothic black hair and an evil expression - in Channing's face, trying to get him to hold it.

"Why does someone make [something like] that?!" he questioned.

Inanimate objects aren't the only thing the star fears; he added that singing scares him too.

It's not just Channing who's been busy - his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live alongside Tyson Beckford last night.

"Move over, @channingtatum... We're in love with @jennaldewan too! #WWHL (sic)," the show posted on its official Twitter account.

The stunning brunette seemed to be having a great time, using her whosay blog to share a snap of herself with a well-earned drink.

"One of my favorite things about being on @bravowwhl ?? This mama needs a drink!! (sic)," she captioned the shot.

Channing is gearing up for the release of Magic Mike XXL, which is due out next year, while Jenna is busy with her TV show Witches of East End.
