Channing Tatum Sends Viral Smooch to Terminally Ill Teen

Need another reason to love Channing Tatum? Besides the chiseled abs and boyish good looks, of course?

When she was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer, Alisa Finley, 18, came up with a 48-item bucket list. So far, she’s managed to cross off 10 items on the list (traveling from her home in Colorado to Europe, trying every type of cheesecake on the Cheesecake Factory’s impressive menu and getting into a pie fight), but the top item has remained stubbornly elusive: Lip-locking with Channing Tatum.

Until now.

The Step Up star learned of Alisa’s dilemma and helped out the only way he knew how — he sent her a one-minute long video in which he and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum perform Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” by backstage at the Academy Awards, ending the vid with a viral smooch.

Alisa has since updated her bucket list, writing “almost done” next to the top entry.
