Before someone flips Salma Hayek Pinault in the future, you better check with her first to make sure she’s wearing underwear.
The actor told Jimmy Kimmel and everyone watching his late-night show about a semi-scandalous moment during the filming of “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” with Channing Tatum.
Along the lines of a franchise built on Tatum’s history Active as an exotic dancer Prior to being produced in Hollywood, the film features an elaborate sequence in which Tatum gives Hayek Pinault a lap dance.
Dubbing the scene, ahem, “energetic,” Kimmel proclaimed. But Hayek Pinault had specific details about the dance part that didn’t make it into the film.
“I needed to be upside down and have my feet somewhere, but being upside down was disorienting and I couldn’t do anything,” she said. In rehearsal, I put my head down and almost hit my head…he was holding my pants.”
There is only one problem with that.
“I was really worried because my pants were being pulled and my pants were coming off and I couldn’t remember if I had underwear.” [on] “So instead of protecting my head with my hands, I clung to my pants.”
Tatum didn’t understand, she said, yelling, “Hands up! … Hands up! Grab my leg!”
She clung to her overpants in case she had no pants. (it’s worth watching videoif only to see her act it out when she tells a story.)
“No no no, I was until everyone came in and separated me from him,” said Hayek Pinault. “And he said, ‘What happened?
“I said, ‘What happened? myself? ”
Still, Hayek Pinault said it was time for her to become an exotic dance recipient in her role as Maxandra Mendoza.
“I deserve it,” she said. “I used to have to play a stripper in a lot of movies, so now I can sit back and enjoy it!” I was overjoyed at not having to rotate all day.
“Magic Mike’s Last Dance” opens in US theaters on February 10th.
