We fall in love with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum every time we watch Step Up, but it turns out there’s at least one little critic who’s not such a fan of their fancy footwork: their four-year-old (tie-designing) daughter, Everly.
“We showed her Step Up for the first time,” Tatum revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night. Explaining that he and his wife thought their little one would appreciate the film that not only saw them fall in love in real life, but also features some stellar dance scenes, he said, “We were like, ‘This is going to be really cool. It’s got dancing; she’s going to love it.’”
Well, she didn’t love it. Frankly, she didn’t give it much of a chance at all. “Within 10 seconds she was like, ‘Can I watch a real movie? I dunno, like a good one?’” Tatum recalled. (Ouch!) “We were like, ‘What do you mean? This is a real movie. It was such a real movie, they made like seven more of these! You will watch it. Sit down!’”
But Everly wasn’t having any of it. “After 10 more seconds, she was like, ‘Can we please watch a real movie?’” Tatum said, admitting that this was the point at which they finally relented. “We were like, ‘Fine, just put on Moana. I don’t care.’”
Perhaps she’ll appreciate it a little more when she’s older. (And we have to admit that Moana *is* a really good movie.)
Would you rather watch Step Up or Moana? Let us know @BritandCo!
