Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham show their support as friend Channing Tatum opens bar

Channing Tatum opened his new bar called Saints & Sinners in New Orleans, Louisiana and good friends Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and beau Jason Statham were on hand to show their support at the launch of the new landmark.

Rosie came wearing a very hip pair of ripped jeans and paired it with a patterned bomber jacket, cowboy boots and a stomach baring t-shirt. She left her trademark blonde hair long and loose as usual but held on tightly to boyfriend Jason as they made their way to the bar. Jason chose casual chic for the outing opting for blue jeans and a navy blue zip-up jacket. Man of the moment, Channing chose grey checked pants, a black vest over grey shirt and added the in-factor by donning a grey beanie pulled low over his head. Wife Jenna went all out on the sizzle factor and wore a short grey glitter dress and teamed it with metallic heels and accessorised with a silver headband that added lots of dazzle to her dark hair.

Channing and Jamie were seen mingling and chatting to a full house and the host even went so far as to don a masquerade style mask making it a mysterious affair as well. The opening of the bar was postponed last month due to Hurricane Isaac. Channing had this to say regarding his decision to open a bar. “I don’t think I’d ever open a bar anywhere else really, because I don’t want to try to get people there. But people come to New Orleans with a little bit of money in their pocket and they have one thing they want to do with it – and that’s spend it and party with it and go crazy. And I want to help facilitate that.”

Hmmm…..sounds like good business savvy and looks like he’s done his research well. We wish him and his wife much success and who can go wrong with A-list friends like Rosie and Jason backing them all the way. As the song goes, “That’s what friends are for….”
