I think we can all agree that Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum have surpassed literally every celebrity couple in general levels of cool/chill/vibes (minus that time Channing followed all those Zoë fan accounts, a decision that was presumably guided by a complete and total lack of chill). And now that they've been dating for almost a year (!!!), it's time to map things out. And we're going allll the way back to 2017.
Zoë and Channing work together on 2017's The Lego Batman Movie, but honestly it's unclear how much time they actually chilled together due to this being an in-studio voiceover situation.

Zoë files for divorce and almost immediately rumors start floating around that she and Channing are dating, so a source does some quick/panicked PR work and tells People, "They're working together on an upcoming project, and it's not true that they're dating."

Zoë fully gushes about Channing while talking about her new movie Pussy Island, saying, "Chan was my first choice, the one I thought of when I wrote this character. I just knew from Magic Mike and his live shows, I got the sense he's a true feminist and I wanted to collaborate with someone who was clearly interested in exploring this subject matter."
Channing also gushes about Zoë in the same interview, FYI!
“When Zoë called me about this, I was shocked. I didn’t know her. I’d watched her in movies, knew she produced 'High Fidelity' and had seen that, but I didn’t know she was creating on a level like this, where she wanted to direct. This came out of nowhere and the subject matter made me say, wait, why are you thinking about me for this? No one gives me a chance to play a role like this, everybody throws me down a different alley and expects me to do a certain thing. It was scary and liberating, just to be able to have a free conversation, where I was allowed to mess up and say the wrong things. It became less about men and women and on more of a human thing that will open people’s eyes rather than us drawing lines in the sand, the ‘you’re a man, I’m a woman, it’s us against you’ thing. This goes deeper in a direction I’m fascinated by and I’m interested in seeing how people receive this and break it down in their own lives. And what they think the movie means and how would they have made decisions.”

Zoë tags Channing in the comments of one of her dad's Instagram posts, writing, "You auditioning for MM3?" Channing then writes, "Oh shit!! Doing the lords work i see!! Will be calling you shortly to get into your schedule my friend. Hehehe."
