Exes Jenna Dewan, Channing Tatum would have celebrated 11th anniversary today; Look back at their relationship
As an ode to Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum’s would-be 11th wedding anniversary today, we look back at the couple’s straight-out-of-a-movie romance and the journey that followed.
In romantic comedies, the film always ends with the boy and girl realizing they're meant to be together and living happily ever after. In real life, however, things are a bit less clear-cut. But every now and then, even in Hollywood comes along a dream couple whose picture-perfect relationship looks like it’s straight out of a movie. But as we know, life rarely ends as perfectly as a movie script, and so sometimes our dream celebrity couples that were previously total #goals come to an end and leave our hearts shattered in the wake of their break up, one such couple is Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum.
Blame it on nostalgia, but we can't help but think of the former lovers and how great they would have been together today. The couple who broke up in April 2018, would be celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary today. While we never know what goes on behind closed doors when a seemingly perfect pair like Dewan and Tatum calls it quits, we can’t help but miss the former couple and the adorable moments they left us with. So, in honour of their would-be 11th anniversary, we look back at the couple’s straight-out-of -a-movie romance.
