Are Zoe and Channing Still Together?
It appears the Batman actress and Magic Mike star are still going strong as they were spotted packing on the PDA during an August 2022 Italian vacation.
Zoë previously played coy when asked about Channing in her March 2022 Elle cover story and simply gushed that she is “happy.”
As far as what makes their romance work, an insider told Us Weekly that the pair “have a lot in common,” adding, “They’re both very active and love outdoor sports and being in the outdoors.”
How Did Zoe and Channing Meet?
The actress opened up about meeting her beau through casting for her directorial debut, Pussy Island.
“I felt, even from afar, before I knew him, that he was a feminist and that he wasn’t afraid of exploring that darkness, because he knows he’s not that,” she told the Wall Street Journal in August 2022. “That’s why I was drawn to him and wanted to meet with him. And I was right.”
She went on to explain that she wanted his character to be played by “someone who hadn’t played a dark character before, because I think that’s exciting to watch someone who’s mostly played boy next door, good guy, love interest, all of that.”
The Big Little Lies star previously told Deadline in June 2021 that “[He was the one] I thought of when I wrote this character.”
“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,” she told the outlet.
For his part, Channing admitted he was “shocked” when Zoë called him about the darker role.
“This came out of nowhere and the subject matter made me say, ‘Wait, why are you thinking about me for this?’ No one gives me a chance to play a role like this, everybody throws me down a different alley and expects me to do a certain thing,” he recalled during the joint interview. “It was scary and liberating, just to be able to have a free conversation, where I was allowed to mess up and say the wrong things.”
The Hollywood duo confirmed their romance in August 2021 during multiple outings around New York City. Channing also began following several fan-run Instagram accounts dedicated to the High Fidelity actress.
