What’s better than watching Salma Hayek on the big screen? Probably, watching Salma Hayek getting a lap dance from none other than the lap dance master Channing Tatum in the upcoming ‘Magic Mike: Last Dance.’
The Mexican actress has been revealing some bits of her upcoming movie with the American actor and in a recent interview she admitted that Channing Tatum’s lap dance was not easy, in fact, quite the opposite, revealing that it was ‘physically challenging.’
“It’s very physically challenging,” Hayek told Entertainment Tonight about mastering the sequence. “My goodness. You just wait to see. It’s just complicated.”
Hayek plays a wealthy socialite who partners with Mike for a London show. The trailer has already been revealed and it has been clearly hinted that the two characters are linked romantically since they are both seen in the clip sharing some steamy sequences.
While not much has been revealed, the Eternals star also revealed that her character is a “strong woman” and that she enjoyed every second of production.
Interestingly, enough, the Frida star also shared what her steamy work routine involved, including a bunch of men doing what she asked. “You know what was my day going into the office? I would just sit around and watch, like, 12 men, semi-naked dancing and doing pirouettes,” Hayek said. “And I got to boss them around.”
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Magic Mike 3 also stars Ayub Khan Din, Jemelia George, Juliette Motamed, and Vicki Pepperdine Salma Hayek was the latest addition after replacing Thandiwe Newton after exiting the project. “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” premieres in theaters on February 10.
This is not the first time Salma Hayek gushes about Channing Tatum. Back in August, she revealed that his dancing skills just got better. “If you thought he could dance [before], you are going to realize you haven’t seen anything. His dance skills — he just got better,” Hayek said at the time to People.
Channing Tatum Wanted A Strong Woman As Co-Star
In the same interview, Tatum said that the third film will focus more on the female experience of dealing with Mike, instead of a man’s point of view.
“I want to have an equal, if not even more centralized female character for Mike to really play off of and almost to,” he explained. “I don’t want to say, [to have her] take the baton, but really let the movie be about a female’s experience and not Mike’s experience because it has been so much about Mike and the guys’ experiences. These movies are very, very female-forward. At least that is our intention.”
