Who’s at the center of Hollywood’s hottest bro-mance? Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, that’s who – or, perhaps they should now be referred to as, “Joning?”
The two actors admit they definitely bonded while shooting their new film 21 Jump Street, and at Tuesday’s Grauman’s Chinese Theater premiere they unabashedly reveled in the qualities they admire most in each other.
“I’ve never met anyone like Jonah that can go in and literally win an entire room and get away with just about anything,” Tatum, 31, tells PEOPLE.
“It’s like he could punch somebody in the face and somehow he would keep him laughing about it – he’s like, ‘It’s fine. It’s fine. I just punched you in the face. It’s cool. Don’t even worry.’ And they would just laugh about it.”
