Salma Hayek Opens Up About Her Steamy Scenes With Channing Tatum In Magic Mike’s Last Dance
The trailer for the third and final part of Magic Mike featured a sexy lap dance scene starring Hayek, 56, and Tatum, 42 – and Hayek spoke about what it was like filming them.
“It’s very physically demanding,” the Oscar-nominated star told Entertainment Tonight. “Gosh. They’re just waiting to see. It’s just complicated.”
The “Frida” actress said it was a “magical moment” that made her “remember who I really was.”
Hayek – who took on the role of Thandiwe Newton – gave an insight into her character and what it was like on set.
“I play a strong woman,” she told Antonio Banderas while promoting her upcoming film Puss Boots: The Last Wish.
“Do you know what day I went to the office? I just sat around and watched 12 men half-naked dance and pirouette. And I have to boss them around,” Hayek continued.
Banderas, 62, joked with Hayek, saying, “Poor girl, poor girl,” and said he made a cameo in the film.
“He would have. He would have shamed her,” Hayek replied. “He’s a really good dancer, Antonio.”
While the lap dancing scene may have been “complicated,” Hayek Tatum has previously given much praise for his dancing.
“If you thought he could dance [before]You’ll realize you haven’t seen anything,” the House of Gucci star told People in August.
“His dancing skills — he’s just gotten better,” she added.
In the third film in the franchise, directed by Steven Soderbergh, Tatum’s Mike Lane is left behind in Florida after a failed business as a bartender. He meets up with a wealthy socialite (Hayek) who takes him to London with an offer to direct a dance show.
Tatum has told People that he wanted the film to be “the Super Bowl of stripping.”
Ayub Khan-Din, Gavin Spokes, Caitlin Gerard, Juliette Motamed, Jemelia Georg and Vicki Pepperdine also star in the film.
Magic Mike’s Last Dance is slated to hit theaters on February 10, 2023.
