Channing Tatum ''burned the skin off'' his penis while trying to keep warm when filming new movie 'The Eagle of the Ninth' in the Scottish Highlands
Channing Tatum "burned the skin off" his penis.
The 29-year-old actor suffered the agonising injury while trying to keep warm when shooting 'The Eagle of the Ninth' in the Scottish Highlands in October.
He explained: "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?
"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 d**k."
Channing - who describes the incident as "the most painful thing" he had ever experienced - was taken to hospital, but with the nearest medical facility over an hour away, the former stripper struggled to cope with the agony.
He added to Details magazine: "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.
"I had five guys looking at my shrivelled, burned penis."
Fortunately, the actor - who is married to actress Jenna Dewan - made a full recovery.
He added: "I'm good . . . now. My penis is fantastic! 100 per cent recovered. Put me back in the game, Coach."
