Ouch! Thankfully Channing Tatum's package is "fantastic" and "one hundred percent recovered" now, but it sounds like he went through an excruciatingly painful experience on the set of The Eagle of the Ninth.
Channing is the February 2010 cover boy for Details, and in the issue he discusses the horrific accident in which scalding water burned his genitals. Channing was shooting the flick in the Scottish Highlands, and he tells the mag:
- "The only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down your suit. We were finally done shooting for the day, and one of the crew guys asks if I want to warm up before I go. I'm like, Nah, I'm good. And then I thought, Why not? Thing is, he'd forgotten to dilute the kettle water. So he poured scalding water down my suit. And I was trying to pull the suit away from my body to somehow get away from the boiling water, and the more I pulled the suit away, the lower the water went. It just went straight down and pretty much burned the skin off the head of my dick."
Channing was rushed to the hospital, and he says it was one of the most painful experiences of his life, not to mention humiliating! "I had five guys looking at my shriveled, burned penis," he tells the mag. However, he also had the balls to show the interviewer pictures from his iPhone, so even though it's an experience he'd like to forget, he can certainly look back on it and laugh. That's the spirit!
OUCH! But it sounds like Jenna Dewan doesn't care, so it's all good!
