What is it like to work with Channing Tatum?

We recently talked to Channing's White House Down costar, the adorable 13-year-old Joey King, who plays his daughter Emily Cale in the action-packed thriller about a terrorist attack on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. She was quick to open up about working with the Sexiest Man Alive!

"He's actually really funny," she told us. "He is a prankster!"

So he's hot, awesome with kids AND funny? Can you say P-E-R-F-E-C-T?

Joey got off easy when it came to Channing's jokes. She revealed that he made a pact with her not pull any pranks on each other. Sounds like someone has been watching some reality team competition shows.

She also told us they have nicknames for each other. She calls him "Unicorn" and he calls her "T-Rex." Better not mess with her.

Check back soon to find out what else Joey (who can currently be heard as the voice of China Doll in Oz the Great and Powerful) had to say about One Direction and working with Selena Gomez.

Peep the exclusive just-released poster for White House Down!

The movie will be in theaters on June 28!
