Watch: Simone Biles Meets Channing Tatum and He Freaks Out

Here's how the superstar Olympic gymnast reacted to the heartthrob.

Published September 6, 2016

Simone Biles totally freaked out when meeting her longtime crush Zac Efron last month.

But three weeks after making history by winning four gold medals in the Rio Olympics, the superstar gymnast has come to the realization that people will now freak out upon meeting her — and that includes Channing Tatum.

The Hollywood heartthrob did exactly that Tuesday on Ellen, where he and Biles were guests.

Tatum warned the show's host, Ellen DeGeneres, that he's "gonna freak out" meeting Simone, before gushing and marveling over her uncanny ability.

“My theory is that she’s so tiny, she has a harder time holding onto the ground than just going up. I don’t know. She’s always flying away,” Tatum said of the 4-foot-9 dynamo. “I think she’s got really strong toes, which helps her hold on to the ground.”

Moments later, when Simone was being interviewed by DeGeneres, the host surprised the Olympic hero with a stand to hold all her gold medals — a stand that came in the form of Channing Tatum, himself.

Take a look at the sweet surprise and Simone's priceless reaction.

Go ahead, Simone, and let Channing show off your hard work.

And the #BlackGirlMagic continues.
