Comically muscular sweetheart Channing Tatum found himself a little bit more than starstruck upon meeting gymnastics star Simone Biles on Ellen. Tatum's endearingly nerdy personality is well documented, so it's not exactly surprising to see the hulking beauty geeking out over an encounter with an actual American hero.
