The X-Rated Kiss Between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill
With 22 Jump Street opening in theatres this Friday, stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are making the talk show rounds to promote the film. On Monday, they appeared together on Conan, where the two revealed a very scandalous bet they made just prior to the first film’s opening.
While discussing the film’s opening weekend gross, Tatum noted that the film opening to more than $30 million would be considered very good.
A betting man, Hill told him that if the film made more than $35 million opening weekend he’d kiss the tip of Tatum’s penis — “over the boxers,” Hill specified. “I’d say that’s a key piece of fabric for the story.”
The film opened to just over $35 million, and despite the fact that it’s now two years later, Hill still hasn’t made good on his bet. And despite Tatum offering him the opportunity to “double down,” Hill noted: “My gambling career has come to an abrupt end.”
Hill has recently been in the headlines apologizing for a homophobic slur he used during a confrontation with a paparazzo. While appearing on The Tonight Show, Hill said: “How you mean things doesn’t matter. Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque. No one deserves to say or hear words like that.”
