Pairs Division: Foxx & Tatum at the White House Down Germany Premiere

Posted on September 05, 2013

Smell the camaraderie:


Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum attends the premiere of “White House Down” in Berlin, Germany.

We’re going to go out on a limb and say these two did not become super-besties after making their movie together, in that giggly, “Drew Barrymore & Cameron Diaz” kinda way. That’s some serious stiff body language, dudes – and not in the “Don’t wanna look too gay here” anxious straightboy way.

Loving the color scheme, although we really wish their was some contrast or pop of color going on with the tie. The jacket and pants are both a little long on him, which make him look shorter than he is. Score: 8/10.


His hems are hitting in all the right places, but we think both the jacket and the pants might be a skosh too tight. We’re appreciating the extreme polish. Not loving the Caesar-cut hair, though.  Score: 8.5/10.

Combined Score: 8.25. That’s pretty good for a couple of bros who don’t seem to like each other very much.

    This movie is still a thing?

    • Rand Ortega

      It’s just being released in parts of Europe. Those poor, poor Europeans.

  • madscntst

    Oh dear, my panties just dropped to my ankles.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I really hate Jamie’s pants.

  • It’s Kimmy

    I thought they were cool after the “Channing all over my Tatum” song

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Jaime looks like he raided another man’s closet.

    • Tatiana Luján

      a school teacher’s closet.

      • Alloy Jane

        Who used to be a weatherman in the 80s.

        • Getoverit

          The brown jacket has to go. Anchormanish.

          • I don’t get the pants with that jacket. Does not compute.

  • MilaXX

    No problem with the scores or critiques. Not sure why they look so stiff here, they seemed okay on chats shows earlier.

  • Eric Stott

    Fashion be dammed, Tatum needs a wider necktie for proportion – all that white is blinding – and the shirt too.

    • Getoverit

      Agreed, tie is way to skinny for his build.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I don’t know if I’ve ever said (or thought) this, but I think Jamie looks terrible. I think that jacket clashes with the pants, and the tie goes with neither, IMHO.

    I like Tatum’s look- Love the tie but would have preferred it with a navy suit or something. I think he looks way better than his partner here.

    • kimmeister

      Even though they are neutrals, I agree with you that the fabric of Jamie’s pants and jacket don’t go together. I think a dark jacket paired with light pants never looks right anyway. It visually shortens the legs.

  • sugarkane105

    In that outfit, and standing next to Channing, Jaime looks like a hobbit.

    • Heather

      It would be hard for any of us to stand next to Channing and not look somehow off.

    • Alloy Jane

      I wonder how long until Wifey is able to hang out on the RC with him. She’s so tiny! It’s like Peter Pan grew up beefy and married a brunette Tinkerbell who is still just a little fairy.

  • kimmeister

    Am not liking the black collar buttons on Jamie’s shirt. They make his whole neck area look like a snowy owl.

    • Linda LaPaz

      Can’t unsee that now!

    • mshesterp

      Hee!! THat’s fantastic. Someone else cheekier would’ve done that on purpose.

  • sk8tfan

    I know it’s irrational, but Channing’s thick neck turns me off. He seems like a decent guy and I like a lot of his movies, but his neck could bench press by itself.

  • roadkill

    I don’t think Jamie looks good here. That color combo looks really cheap

    • Heather

      Is it a brown jacket with grey pants? I don’t like it either – reminds me of red and navy together which I also don’t care for. Feels clashy.

      • roadkill

        And it doesn’t work with his skin color

  • mmebam

    Jeebus! Maybe Jamie will grow into his pants next year… #ICannot

  • anotherkate

    I think Tatum looks considerably more than .5 better than Foxx. Those old man pants ruin it for me.

  • Imasewsure

    Looks like an awkward office party photo (senior partner having to take a chummy photo with a junior associate he wants to fire, etc). Don’t like JF’s look at all here. CT looks fine but dull

  • conniemd

    I just don’t get the Channing Tatum appeal and I did see “Mad Mike.” I thought Matthew McConaughy was the hottest dude (only because they didn’t give Matt Bomer enough time). Channing just looks like a baby face boy in a SEC football player’s body. Yawn. Now Jamie Foxx…….rawrrrrrr

  • stephbellard

    I think you rated Jamie too high. Those pants are almost puddling on him.

  • OrigamiRose

    I just can’t with the Potatum Head.

  • Diego!

    Channing is bringing down the house, he looks (is actually) gorgeous and the suit fits him perfectly. On the other hand, Jamie, you are such a handsome man, why not wearing a suit too? I don’t like your pants, but I like the jacket very much 😀

  • Glam Dixie

    Channing could maybe have used a slightly wider tie, otherwise he looks
    great, very sharp. Jamie Foxx however, is dressed just like my grandpa
    does when he goes to church (although Jamie’s clothes are better fitted
    than my grandpa’s).

  • dancho

    Tatum looks he is packing a polska kielbasa that’s causing the pantlegs to pull. Maybe that’s why they look a skosh tight.

    • lobsterlen

      I must be getting old when I read polska kielbasa I started craving a grilled homemade polska kielbasa sandwich for lunch.

  • Tatum is turning into Travolta. That is not a compliment. Foxx looks like he’d rather be anywhere else on the planet – can’t say I blame him.

  • CPK1

    i don’t think this is a good look for Jamie. It’s very granddad and aging.And not just because he is standing next to someone considerably younger.He looks independently awful.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    My boss’s boss’s boss constantly dresses like Jamie Foxx. I hate that long jacket look with the pudding pants. Why do otherwise attractive men make themselves look short and dowdy like that?

  • clairellis

    I don’t think they dislike one another. Strange that they aren’t standing closer together but I think they are friends. And Channing can just take off his suit. He’s better naked.

  • veleri

    I prefer Jamie Foxx when he wears a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
    or nothing at all.

    However, I love those two together. Have you watched their “music” video?
