New Jenna Dewan Photos, Interview, Casting Call, and Trailer

Jenna Dewan at the Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008 Event (October 21, 2008)

There's a lot going on with our favorite starlet, so I wanted to give you all a not-so-quick update. Enjoy!!!


If you've ever met Channing Tatum's fiancee Jenna Dewan, then you know (in addition to being gorgeous) she's extremely down-to-earth like Chan. She's so down-to-earth that I often lose sight of the fact that she's a celebrity...UNTIL I see her at events that is.

Jenna looked even more stunning than ever in an adorable Burberry dress at last night's star-studded Vanity Fair event. The magazine, in conjunction with the store Burberry, held a preview party to celebrate the opening of the "Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008" exhibit at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles, California.

Admittedly, I'm a little jealous. I may just have to steal her dress, bracelet, shoes, and legs while I'm at it the next time I see her. Fans can check out a ton of new photos of Jenna Dewan and the cutest little black dress ever at the event below:


Below you can check out a new interview that Jenna did for Netscape.com's Celeb Insider where we get an update on some of her upcoming movies and her thoughts on the shortage of role models for young girls today...

CELEB INSIDER: Dewan's Heart Goes Out to Girls

At age 27, Jenna Dewan seems to have the world by the tail. Reportedly engaged (though she won't confirm) to hunky "Step Up" leading man Channing Tatum, she has a hot career with several movies on the way, including the Tim Allen comedy, "The Six Wives of Henry Lefay" -- making her transition from high school roles into young womanhood gracefully.She tells us she likes making films in which she can play strong women who impart good inspiration to young girls. Her forthcoming "Virgin on Bourbon Street" film, she says, has "a girl character that has a message." So did her recent "Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal" cable movie, in which she played the coach who fights her team's out-of-control bad behavior.

Her heart goes out to teen girls.

Making "Fab Five," she says she realized things have gotten tougher out there even than when she was in high school not that many years ago.

"Kids are being given so much freedom and with that is freedom to find drugs, sex and alcohol, sooner and sooner," notes the actress. "I have cousins who are 13 and I think, 'Oh! I can't watch this.'"

Part of the problem? "My take on it is, girls don't really have a lot of good role models today. They're looking up to starlets who are making mistakes themselves. I'm not blaming these celebrities," she makes clear. "I'm just saying that young people are seeing all this happening and thinking it's the norm, which is understandable."


Jenna Dewan will start filming her next movie 'Virgin on Bourbon Street' with comedian Rob Schneider next week in Michigan. I have read that the romantic comedy will be shot entirely on location in Greektown, Indian Village, various other downtown Detroit locations, and Orchard Lake St. Mary's Preparatory School. They have also announced that they need extras for the week of October 27th.

While movie extras won't be compensated, there will be opportunities to win great prizes. The prizes will include: Plasma Screen Televisions, Motor Scooters, Microsoft X-box 360, SR and Digital video cameras, and filming will be conducted rain or shine.

A few months ago I told you all about Xbox 360's upcoming series of eight short films where horror directors are going to create comedies.

Jenna Dewan is starring in the first film that will be released, and its called 'Janitor'. From what I understand and can clearly see in the trailer below, this particular film is heavy on the horror and light on the comedy with a horror twist, unlike the other director's shorts, which I'm sure will make die-hard horror buffs even more happy.

Here's what the film short is about...

"When Jennifer (Jenna Dewan) escapes detention, she encounters the school Janitor, and quickly finds herself in the midst of his killing spree."

Just in time for Halloween, 'Janitor' debuts Friday, October 31, 2008 on the Xbox Live! Marketplace, but in the meantime you can check out the scary and bloody teaser for it below...don't say I didn't warn you.

I will soon be posting a movie update for Channing's films too, so stay tuned to Channing Tatum Unwrapped so you don't miss out on any of the scoop.
