If there is just one thing that Channing Tatum’s Reddit AMA last week taught us, it’s that he isn’t shy when it comes to sharing intimate details of his life, and the actor has proven this once again with a very vivid tale of how he burnt his penis when filming one day.
Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch.
Speaking to Howard Stern during a radio interview, Channing opened up about the horrific moment a crew member left his penis, otherwise known as Gilbert, “shrivelled and burnt” when filming The Eagle in Scotland yonks ago.
The 35 year old explained: “I started hyperventilating and screaming and jumping back in the back end of the river because it was a hypothermic river and we had wet suits on, which was the worst part about it.
“This poor guy had been, for thirteen hours, running up a hill for like fifteen minutes to boil this huge bottle of water, fill it half-full with like actual kettle water, run back down the hill and then put the river water in it, and then come over to me, just to keep me warm all day.”
Channing goes on to reveal that it was at the very end of shooting that the scolding happened, with the crew member offering to warm him back up before he made his way back to his trailer.
Oh Chan, we bet you just wish you’d stuck with the cold, eh?
Describing the moment, the dad-of-one dished: “You know when you burn your finger and it just keeps burning? It kept burning for like, the next twenty to thirty minutes. I was having a complete panic attack.”
But as it happens, the pain was a good thing because it meant that the boiling water hadn’t damaged his nerves.
“I didn’t have any skin on my penis,” Channing added, “It oddly didn’t scar. It’s a resilient place down there. It healed pretty quick.
“I was like, ‘Why God?! Why did you do this to me?!”
The Magic Mike star later admitted that just a week later he was healed enough to do the deed when his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, came to visit, sharing that it was “a bit rough” but they “got it done”.
Oh, and if you’re wondering, Channing didn’t get that member of crew fired and blacklisted from the industry forevermore, in fact, he forgave him pretty easily after he bought Chan a nice bottle of whiskey.
All’s well that ends well, right?
