Channing Tatum does interview with autistic, nonverbal web host Carly Fleischmann
UPI News Service, 05/04/2016
Channing Tatum was the first guest on the new web series "Speechless with Carly Fleischmann," hosted by an autistic, nonverbal woman.
During the 7-minute webisode, Fleischmann, 21, used a computer program that allowed her to ask questions -- and at times flirt with -- the Hollywood actor.
"He has been a stripper, a police officer, a secret agent, a reporter, a boyfriend to many, and soon he will dump his wife to be with me," Fleischmann joked in her introduction. "How about that, would you date a 21-year-old person with autism?"
"Yes, if I got permission from my wife," Tatum replied.
The actor discussed his rebellious childhood, his marriage to Jenna Dewan Tatum and ultimately his fear of dolls during the conversation. In the end, Fleischmann and Tatum agreed they would enjoy getting drunk with President Barack Obama.
Fleischmann, the author of "Carly's Voice," aspires to be the world's first autistic, nonverbal talk show host.
