Channing Tatum was very lonely as a child. So lonely, in fact, that the guy—now America's sweetheart, one of the world's most popular actors, and an international sex symbol—had to go searching for friends in offbeat places. That's how he found Boy, his imaginary friend, and don't you dare say he invented him, okay, Boy was real. 

Tatum stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night to chat, and the topic of Boy was brought up by a mostly unfeeling Jimmy Kimmel, who didn't seem to be totally convinced of the veracity of Boy. You monster, Kimmel! Well, until Kimmel did a sort of sweet thing, and reunited Tatum and Boy on live television! What emotion, what human truth, what beauty.
