I think C-Tates survived this because his personality shined through in the Jump Street flicks and his seriousness came through in the first Magic Mike.  He proved himself more than, say, a Sam Worthington or a Jai Courtney.

Besides, Mila had it worse because of the exchange: "I'm like a dog to you." "I love dogs."  Which is the line that everyone remembers and quotes?  Mila's.  So she's got the forefront in the mental landscape.

I'm more curious to see what's happening to Mila after this.  C-Tates can make more goofball comedies as the big lovable well-meaning oaf, or dress up like Beyonce and dance.  What's Mila's next role gonna be?

Eddie Redmayne is the only one who seems like he was having fun with the movie, he knew what he was in and he owned it, whispering every single line except one.

And I don't remember ANY of the other cast members.  Well, maybe Vanessa Kirby because of that lingerie scene, I made a note of that.  But the woman who lived on what looked EXACTLY like Asgard from the Thor movies?  No clue.  The other family members?  The crew of the Aegis?  Drawing a blank.

It feels like the Wachowskis have forgotten how to feel like an audience while making this, there doesn't seem to be any consideration for the people watching their movies, and it's felt this way for a while.  I think Sense8 and Cloud Atlas avoided that by having people they were collaborating with, so they got to experience the work and had an audience as they were creating.  Their other movies don't really get that, and I think they suffer for it.
