LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Channing Tatum is known for his hot body, but the actor is hoping to one day skip the gym for work and instead, focus on calories.
“I’m gonna give it five more years and then say, ‘Get me some fat roles, boys!’” the actor told the latest issue of Details magazine.
In the mag’s new issue, Chan, as he likes to be called, revealed his perfect body ran into a bit of trouble while on the set of “The Eagle of the Ninth,” in Scotland.
While shooting the film, the actor had to stand in ice-cold water for just a few minutes at a time.
“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?” Chan recounted to the mag. “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.”
The star said he asked the cabbie who was driving him to the hospital for extra help.
“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 recounted.
And recovering from the injury wasn’t easy either.
“It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life,” he said. “I’m good… now,”
“Now my penis is fantastic!” he added. “One hundred percent recovered. Put me back in the game, Coach.”
Channing hits theaters February 5 in “Dear John.”
