Channing Tatum on Jamie Bell, Gay Sex, and His Master & Slave Experience In The Eagle

Channing Tatum recently spoke with NYMag/Vulture online about his recent movie The Eagle where he plays a  Roman soldier who has a short tunic and agiant sword.  In The Eagle, Tatum’s commander has a power (bottom) switch with his slave (Jamie Bell) while on a mission.

Well there are swords, and two guys are sword fighting. There’s a metaphor there I’m sure. And back in the Roman day I think it was probably more accepted than it is now. But there’s none in the movie. Me and [director Kevin Macdonald] talked a lot before we started filming: There is no love story in the movie, but it’s a relationship movie for sure. … I think Jamie had a lot of fun having me as a slave. I don’t think I took advantage of it like I should have when he was my slave. But Jamie, yeah — he abused me. So maybe there was some frustration coming out a little bit here and there. … Jamie and I have a bromance. We’ve been having sex for a few years now. [… It’s] going fantastic

Looks like little Billy Elliott is growing up nicely and thanks to Tatum’s interview I am sure we all look forward to the Unrated Director’s cut.
