The world’s first autistic and non-verbal talk-show host kick-started her new show this week with a very candid interview with one (sadly married) A-lister.

Channing Tatum sat down with Carly Fleischmann for the first of her “Speechless” interview series. Fleischmann, who hails from Canada, was diagnosed with autism as a toddler.

She also has oral-motor apraxia which prevents her from speaking and uses a computer to communicate.

While many interviewers may tiptoe around asking a high-profile actor intimate questions about his relationship with his wife or past job as a stripper, Fleischmann, 21, got straight to it, all the while dropping not-so-subtle hints about how she feels about him.

“Soon he will dump his wife to be with me,” she says introducing the Magic Mike actor before joking that she has lawyers working on his divorce papers as they speak.

Among the many questions fired at Tatum one included: “I know you were a stripper growing up. How many girls at the end of your night would you take home?”
