Rebel Wilson Straddles Channing Tatum For Dangerous Movie Awards Drive

'Pitch Perfect' actress will star as host of this year's ceremony, airing live Sunday, April 14.

The road to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards is a long one, paved with nearly every peril known to man. So, it’s a good thing then that the ceremony’s star, “Pitch Perfect” actress Rebel Wilson, is in the passenger seat next to none other than strapping “Magic Mike” actor Channing Tatum.

In a new promo for the Movie Awards, which will air live Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET, the Australian actress wields a rocket launcher as Tatum takes the wheel of their bullet-riddled ride during one hellacious car chase. But Wilson can’t get her shot, necessitating she straddle the hunk to get a better angle. “Brace those abs,” she warns.

There’s no denying it’s been a big year for the man with the perfectly chiseled pecs. In addition to being an expectant first-time father and the Sexiest Man Alive, the 32-year-old starred in no fewer than five films, earning him three Movie Award nominations: Best Male Performance (“Magic Mike”), Best Shirtless Performance (“Magic Mike”) and Best Musical Moment (“Magic Mike”), which he shares with co-stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez.
