Channing Tatum's kickoff interview on autistic reporter Carly Fleischmann's online show has gone viral with more than 1.4 million views since it was posted on YouTube last week.

It was the first episode of the web series "Speechless with Carly Fleischmann," which features the 21-year-old who communicates through a keyboard because she's unable to use her mouth, noted People magazine. The "Magic Mike" star appeared to embrace the seven-minute interview and played along with Fleischmann's humor.

"I would like to introduce you to my first guest ever," Fleischmann said in her introduction, before asking him if he would date a 21-year-old autistic woman. "He has been a stripper, a police officer, a secret agent, a reporter, a boyfriend to many, and soon he will dump his wife to be with me. I welcome Channing Tatum."



Us Weekly noted that Fleischmann also went into more substantive questions, like asking the star if he thought if being "one of the most attractive hunks in Hollywood" prevented him from getting more serious roles.

"All jokes aside, this interview truly is incredible and a testament to how no condition should define someone," said the website Medical Daily. "That's been Fleischmann's goal from the start. Following a story about her life that garnered national attention, Fleischmann started receiving emails from people all around the world with questions about her condition. She figured, who better to speak on autism than someone who has lived with it every day since she was two."

The Toronto native, who was diagnosed with autism and oral-motor apraxia at 2-years-old, saw her life change at 10 when she learned to communicate through a computer, said Huffington Post Canada.

"Since finding her voice, Fleischmann has made it her duty to spread autism awareness. In 2012, the young woman made headlines after she co-wrote a book called 'Carly’s Voice' with her father, Arthur, based on her struggles and experience with autism."

Fleischmann's celebrity interview won fans on social media.
