Do we spy a new couple? Are Channing Tatum and Zoë Kravitz dating?! Their playful energy certainly seems to suggest it. 

Romance rumors are circulating after a number of cozy-looking paparazzi photos hit the Internet, and many suspect a friends-to-lovers relationship has developed. We're ready to unpack it all. 

Currently, Kravitz is working on bringing her 2017 screenplay to life with the help of Tatum as the lead of her gender-focused thriller, Pussy Island. Kravitz co-wrote the project alongside E.T. Feigenbaum and the movie is set to be her directorial debut.  

The story follows a cocktail waitress named Frida who sets her sights on tech mogul Slater King (played by Tatum). However, she quickly learns that King's private island—and all the glamour that goes along with it—is far from paradise. 

"Chan was my first choice, the one I thought of when I wrote this character,” Kravitz told Deadline. “I just knew from Magic Mike and his live shows, I got the sense he’s a true feminist and I wanted to collaborate with someone who was clearly interested in exploring this subject matter.”

For his part, Tatum revealed to the publication that the casting selection came as a complete surprise, but it looks like this project has turned into a win-win situation if you know what we mean.  

So, are Channing Tatum and Zoë Kravitz dating?

People began to take an interest in the two, who are currently working on Pussy Island, as they appeared to look awfully lovey-dovey on the streets of New York City. (What better place to start a new relationship, right?) Kravitz was photographed standing atop the pegs of Tatum's bike as they cruised through the Lower East Side in August 2021. 

We can't forget about that coffee date! You know, the one where the two were holding their iced drinks and smiling uncontrollably (and Kravitz was rocking an adorable '90s slip dress). Both parties look pretty happy...

The pair, again, were spotted in New York City having lunch with a friend toward the end of August. It would appear that the coworkers are spending an awful lot of time with each other outside of the office (set)...

Sources originally told People earlier in the year that the two were not attached, yet others told US Weekly in August that they are in fact an item. The photos indicate as much! 

And if you need even more proof, sleuthing social media users discovered that Tatum was following several Zoe Kravitz fan accounts on Instagram. So unless he's a really good friend and supportive coworker, something romantic must be going on.

Allegedly, their interest in one another was mutual, but they had never been single beforehand. Thirty-two-year-old Kravitz and her husband Karl Glusman married in 2019, but their divorce became official in summer 2021. Forty-one-year-old Channing Tatum was married to Jenna Dewan from 2009 to 2019. Together, they share a daughter, Everly. 

For all those in NYC, keep your eyes peeled—you never know where the two are likely to turn up next. We'll be keeping watch to see what happens next, but for the moment, we are totally sensing a new love is blossoming. What do you think?

Channing Tatum girlfriend list: Who has he dated?

Prior to his marriage to Jenna Dewan, Channing Tatum was rumored to be linked to another one of his famous costars: Amanda Bynes from She's the Man. However, nothing was ever officially confirmed between the two.

Tatum met his future wife on the set of his breakout role in 2006's Step Up. Tatum and Dewan got engaged in 2008 and married a year later, and welcomed daughter Everly in 2013. 

After nine years of marriage, they announced their separation in a joint Instagram statement in April 2018, and the divorce was finalized in November 2019. Dewan has since been involved in a relationship with actor Steve Kazee since fall 2018 and together they welcomed a son in 2020. 

In October 2018, Tatum was spotted out with British singer Jessie J, with whom he was in an on-again, off-again relationship until April 2020. 

Following their split, it was reported that Tatum was back on the dating scene, specifically on Raya, the dating app for celebrities and creatives. (Here's how to get on Raya, in case you want to expand your dating pool with the rich and famous!)

Zoë Kravitz boyfriend list: Who has she dated?

The daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actor Lisa Bonet, Zoë has no doubt had interesting people around her for her entire life. And the men in her life have been no exception. Over the years, the Big Little Lies star has been seen with actors Ben Foster, Ezra Miller, Chris Pine, and even Drake. 

Of her more significant publicized relationships, Kravitz had a two-year romance with You and Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley from 2011 to 2013. 

Most recently, the actress was paired with Nocturnal Animals actor Karl Glusman, who she began dating in October 2016. They got engaged in February 2018—"I love that it wasn’t this elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants," Kravitz told Rolling Stone about the proposal.

They wed twice, once in a secret civil ceremony stateside in May 2019 and then in a larger event at her father's Paris home with family and friends (including BLL co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman) present a month later. 

After less than two years of marriage, Kravitz filed for divorce in January 2021. The divorce was finalized in a New York court in August.
