He just can't seem to stop talking about his manhood

Channing Tatum seems to be talking about his penis quite a bit recently. 

Last week, the Magic Mike star revealed he calls his package “Gilbert” and now he has opened up about an on-set injury that jeopardised Gilbert’s future.

Channing stars in Magic Mike XXL.

In a new interview with Howard Stern, the 35-year-old revealed that he burned his groin so badly on the set of The Eagle that it left him with a “shriveled, burnt penis.”

The cast and crew were filming in Scotland at the time, where temperatures were so cold that people were actually pouring warm water down their pants to stay warm.

However, disaster struck when one crew member who was charged with delivering the warm water failed to tell Channing that the water was scalding hot.

The actor married Jenna Dewan in 2009. 

When Channing went to warm his cockles (so to speak), he got a nasty surprise.

The poor crater revealed: “I didn’t have skin on my penis, but it oddly didn’t scar.

“It’s a resilient place down there. It healed pretty quick.”

When asked about getting down and dirty with his wife Jenna Dewan, the actor revealed: “It was a little rough but we got it down.”

Our favorite part of this story? Just as the unfortunate accident happened, Kings of Leon’s Sex on Fire was apparently playing on a nearby radio.

We’re just glad Gilbert is okay.
