The Vow’s Channing Tatum & Rachel McAdams talk tearjerkers

Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum have us reaching for the tissues again in their Valentine’s Day-timed love story, The Vow.

A romance like this hasn’t come along since, well, since Rachel McAdams’ and Channing Tatum’s last movies! I’m talking a Notebook and Dear John-worthy tearjerker.

“I do like tear-jerkers,” the masculine Tatum admitted when we chatted with him and McAdams about their new movie, The Vow. “It’s a good purging, cathartic thing.”

Tatum got even more sentimental as he told the story of he and his wife’s (Jenna Dewan) first meeting.

“I was reading with all the girls for Step Up and she walked into another girl’s audition,” Tatum told us. “I remember her breath being bad when we actually had a kissing scene. She loves it when I bring that up. It actually got better, I married her.”

It must have! The couple has been married for over two years now and Tatum still thinks just hanging out with her is the best.

“When we have date night, we usually have a staycation and just chill out, turn off phones, no internet, no nothing,” said Tatum “We’re just like, ‘Let’s sit and watch some good movies, or just turn everything off and see how many bottles of wine we can get through and see what we can talk about.'”

McAdams seems to be into more exhilarating dates, telling us her most memorable one was a trip to the train tracks.

“You sit on the trestle, and as the train comes by, you close your eyes and try not to flinch,” Rachel recalled. “I’ll certainly never forget it. I’m alive to tell about it thank goodness. It was rather thrilling.”

Rachel’s own life is quite thrilling as well. She told us her decision to become an actress was actually an accident.

“I was on one track, going to go to school for something entirely different, and ending up going into acting as a fluke,” said Rachel. “I was going to get a degree in Cultural Studies, and I don’t know what that means actually! I just chose something. It sounded like it covered a lot of ground.”

We’re certainly glad she found acting!

For an intimate evening with your man, or a bonding sob-fest with your girlfriends, hit the theatres to check out The Vow this Valentine’s Day!
