In Channing Tatum's recent Vanity Fair cover story, he revealed that he and author Roxane Gay have been in talks about collaborating on a romance novel.
"She has almost a roughed-out outline of a story that we both love," the actor, who has written a series of children's books, told the magazine. "We just got to find time to do it. She’s the busiest, she’s way busier than I am."
After learning this delightful piece of information, I got pretty curious about what other celebrities have written novels. Surprisingly, there are a ton, from teen icons like Hilary Duff or Kendall and Kylie Jenner hopping on the dystopian novel craze back in the early 2010s, to big names like Tom Hanks and Steve Martin penning their own spins on literary fiction.
Before we get started, I feel like I must add that it's likely that many of these books were written with the help of a ghostwriter. Some celebs are pretty open about it, while others prefer to keep it on the down low!
