“They were very professional. They didn’t act on it. They did absolutely nothing. They were there to get a job done,” Fletcher told Cosmo. “I never said anything to them, they just chose on their own to get the movie done first. They took it very seriously. Once the movie was over—go for it! It was such a wonderful and romantic courting period, even though they didn’t act on it. It was very sweet.”
8. But the pair didn’t exactly hide their feelings for one another onset, with one of their co-stars telling E! News he wasn’t shocked that Tatum and Dewan ended up dating.
“From them meeting, they were just so good together,” Josh Henderson, who played Nora’s boyfriend Brett, said in 2017. “They had so much fun together and there’s no surprise. I saw it coming.”
9. Nearly a decade after getting married, Tatum and Dewan, who share daughter Everly, 8, announced their split in April 2018, finalizing their divorce the following year.
“We started out as friends and I would say it was an instant recognition,” Dewan told Vegas Magazine in 2018. “When we met, it felt like we had known each other for many years…ultimately, no matter what Chan and I are doing, we’re really great friends. I think that will never change, no matter what.”
