Did Amanda Bynes make Channing Tatum famous?

Bynes recently stated in an interview with Paper Magazine that she launched Tatum’s career. “I totally fought for Tatum,” she said, “he wasn’t famous yet. He’d just done a Mountain Dew commercial, and I was like, ‘This guy’s a star — every girl will love him!’ But [the producers] were like, ‘He’s so much older than all of you!’ And I was like, ‘It doesn’t matter! Trust me!'”

Rather than a backlash the Magic Mike star actually agreed. “I love her,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I guess she sort of told me [that she fought to get me in the movie]. I love her.”

Bynes just recently returned to the public light since her performance in Easy A in 2010. “I’m so happy she’s killing it again and just back on the right. She’s so talented and so special,” The Vow star told ET. “She’s been doing it … I mean, I think it’s so impossible when you start at such a young age to keep perspective. It’s tough.”

It is amazing seeing the two stars still supporting each other after so much time.
