Tatum recently discussed the homoeroticism in his new film, The Eagle, and the master/slave relationship between Tatum and his costar Jamie Bell:
"I think there’s love in any relationship, whether it’s between a man and a woman, an animal and a person. Look, you have a need to be understood, humans gather around each other and they need to help each other through things. Jamie’s character and my character through trial by fire had to figure out how to understand each other. So I guess you could call it a bromance."
Tatum continues on that thread:
How about in real life?
Jamie and I have a bromance. We’ve been having sex for a few years now.
How’s that going?
He’s a lot smaller than you. He’s really small.
He’s a goer though.
What’s a goer?
I don’t know. I just made it up.
HAHA. A goer? Well alright then.
