Channing Tatum is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, but an unknown 21-year-old reporter stole the show during a recent interview with the star. Carly Fleischmann, who was diagnosed with autism as a child and has been unable to speak her entire life, had Channing in stitches as they sat down together for the very first episode of her new web series, called Speechless with Carly Fleischmann.
Communicating through her iPad and a keyboard, Carly pulled no punches while playfully quizzing Channing on everything from his career, to his famous friends and his personal life.

Making her intentions clear from the start, smitten Carly began by asked the actor: "Would you date a 21-year-old person with autism?" When Channing replieD that he would if he got permission from wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, she quickly quipped: "All right, I've got my lawyers working on your divorce papers as we speak!"
Carly got Channing to spill several secrets about his early life during the interview – from sneaking out the house at a young age, to his days as a stripper. She also quizzed the Magic Mike star about his marriage to actress Jenna, asked him which one of his famous friends he would refuse to let his daughter date, and reveal the actors he would most like to work with.
The video has proved a big hit with YouTube viewers
The seven-minute interview has proved a huge hit with viewers on YouTube, racking up 414,000 views in just four days. It ends with Channing kissing Carly on the head – only for her to insist on a few more kisses from the man she had earlier described as "one of the most attractive hunks in Hollywood".
