Channing Tatum’s Painful Filming Moment
Even embarrassing incidents happen to movie stars, as Channing Tatum opened up about a painful accident that burnt his privates.
The actor was shooting “The Eagle of the Ninth” last October in cold Scottish Highlands, telling, "The only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down your suit.”
Channing continued, "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?
But the 29-year-old was not ready for what was about to happen. "Thing is, he'd forgotten to dilute the kettle water," he tells. "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 d*ck."
He was taken to a hospital an hour away while in deep pain. "I said to the driver, who was ex-special-forces Marines, 'You might have to knock me out, because I don't know if I can take the pain. Just grab something and hit me on the back of my head,'" he recalls. He was then given morphine but the embarrassment stuck. "I had five guys looking at my shriveled, burned penis. It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life."
And no worries, he says he is “One hundred percent recovered!”
