Channing Tatum Rescues Female Driver

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Kind Acts,

Channing TatumChanning Tatum once rescued a female driver who was stranded by the side of the road. The Dear John star was driving to an interview in Los Angeles, but stopped when he saw a woman trying to push her car down a dangerous exit ramp. He stopped, telling the woman, "The car's smoking. Maybe it's on fire."

Noticing that the lady had a child in the back of her car, who turned out to be her grandson, he got him out of the vehicle, before trying to find out what was wrong with the car and calling a tow truck company. The actor's chauffer was able to make some rudimentary repairs to the car, which would be enough for the driver to make it to the next service station, and Channing gave the lady $100 to help cover the cost of the repair.

"Get it fixed. Go fix it now. Don't get stuck out here again. Take it slow. Put on your flashers," he told the lady, according to his interview in next month's Details.

Professional bulls*****rs.’ It had quite an effect on me. I f***ing get paid to lie… I walked out of there and I spent a bit of time thinking about it,” Owen told Details magazine.

“He was incredibly intense in his performance but incredibly mellow and laid-back. Certainly there was this great anarchistic streak to it—just getting dirtier than anybody’s envisioned the Joker before. This character has power because he has no limits—absolutely nothing to lose.”

When asked how Ledger’s death has impacted his view of the film, Bale added, “Naturally it was something I wanted to share with him—and expected to do so. And I can’t do anything else but hope that it will be an absolutely appropriate celebration of his work.”
