Salma Hayek and Channing Tatum’s close call on set of ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’

The third and final instalment of the ‘Magic Mike’ series hits theaters February 10.

Salma Hayek and Channing Tatum had a close call while filming a steamy scene in the upcoming film ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film is a sequel to 2015′s ‘Magic Mike XXL’, as well as the third and final instalment of the ‘Magic Mike’ trilogy.

During a recent appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, Hayek discussed how filming a steamy lap dance scene with Tatum almost “killed her”.

“You know, this one part that’s not in it where I’m upside down and my legs had to be somewhere,” she told Kimmel. “But upside down, one loses sense of direction, and I didn’t do what I was supposed to do, so in the rehearsal, I went like, head down, almost hitting my head.

“[Tatum] held on to my pants, but I was really concerned because my pants were going away, and I couldn’t remember if I had underwear or not in this moment.

“So, instead of putting my hands up to protect my head, I just held onto the pants. He’s like, “Put your hands up,” and I’m like, “No, no, no, no.’”

The Mexican star added: “Everybody came in, and kind of took me away from him, and he said, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I said, ‘What’s wrong with me? You nearly killed me!’”
