Channing Tatum Burns His Penis, Covers 'Details' February 2010

Channing Tatum dons D&G shirts as February 2010′s cover boy for Details Magazine, on stands January 19. Here’s what the 29-year-old actor shared:

On staying warm in the Scottish Highlands while shooting The Eagle of the Ninth as a soldier: “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—.”

On his burnt penis:: “It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life…I’ve been to the hospital, gotten stitches, had broken fingers and toes. But this was a suffocating kind of pain…Now my penis is fantastic! One hundred percent recovered. Put me back in the game, Coach.”

On depression: “The longer I took Dexedrine, the worse I felt. It sucked all the personality from me. I’d get depressed. I would think suicidal – I was never personally suicidal, but I could see how some kids were, how they’d be, like, I can’t take this anymore.”

More Chan interview at! His upcoming drama Dear John, co-starring Amanda Seyfried, is in theaters on February 5.

  • rocky


    HUH? What the he– are you talking about?

  • rocky


    Just because YOU’RE not doesn’t mean someone else isn’t. I know alot of people who are very happy being married.

  • Emma

    I ABSOLUTELY love Channing Tatum!!!
    I’ve met him before, and not only is he unbelievably gorgeous, but he is definitely one of the sweetest people in the world. He is so kind!
    I remember when this burn story first came out…..there were reports that Channing had been scalded with water on the set of his movie thanks to one of the workers….but I had no idea it had been that bad and that the water scalded that particular body part. It must’ve hurt like helll but I’m glad he’s recovered.
    I can’t wait to see his future projects!!

  • lalalove

    Wow, some interview.

    Too bad he’s married, I’d pretty much love to examine his penis for myself. Mmmmm Mmmm good! He seems kind of slow though.
    In regards to depression, that’s what those damn anti-depressants do to you!

  • lalalove

    The heck, Jared, you get to use the word “Pen!s” but readers can’t??? What the heck, dude?! Can you please clear that sh*t up. Yeah it’s your blog, but WE (the readers) made it what it is.

  • Who

    He’s not attractive

  • Emma

    Too bad I couldn’t kiss it and make it better!

  • jjgg5

    His name is Channing Tatum?

  • SubSub

    I love Channing.

  • Mileena

    He’s still super sexy. I’d hit it.

  • Vyke


  • Chan

    The reason why I love Channing Tatum is because he comes across so honest in his interviews. Maybe too honest in this particular interview but nevertheless his pretty cool dude for admitting all.

    Hey, better he does it than some stupid magazine does. Best male stripper in the world especially at that age and now focus on now but glad he cleared somethings up.

    Little tip though if you are reading this Channing Tatum: Please destroy the photo’s you showed to the interviewer, seriously and glad everything is now fantastic. How lucky is that wife of his, not fair.

    How many famous stars would talk about their p…. etc.

    The photo’s in Details look truly amazings, he is so red hot always.

    Keep doing your thing man. Can’t believe he doesn’t take himself too seriously and that’s why his fans love him and he will gain more with each movie.

    Normal in Hollywood – WOW!

    Can’t wait to see Dear John, bring on 5th Feb NOW!

  • Celebgawking

    We have met Channing and he is not only very charming and handsome but so sweet. It’s nice to meet a celeb on the red carpet that is polite and drop dead gorgeous!

  • jolentini
  • Well

    When you are that HOT you get burnt. Happy he is ok but let me check.

    Why not????? ooooooohhhhhh married, SHAME.

    Good guy. You kind of have to luv him more.

  • Details Mag

    The magazine is called Details & Chan Tatum talked & talked.

    I say more PLEASE, all film stars should be more open. I feel like I know him very well, maybe 2 well but I like it.

    Feel free 2 ask me any questions about him, it’s all in the Details.

    Only Chan Tatum can talk about his manhood in a magazine called Details; I think that’s a smart move.

    That guy is a gr8 actor & not stupid at all come on Details.

  • wildcats

    good looking..not as gorgeous as zac though

  • Zac WHO?????

    @ wildcats – This is a man not a boy!

  • engineersdating

    Wow, he’s still hot

  • Whoever

    Meh….Not that cute…. I prefer Wentworth Miller… gay or not Great spread though

  • Whatever right

    Channing Tatum and Wentworth Miller could be brothers. However, sorry have to say in these imagines Channing Tatum is100% hotter and in general.

    Wishful thinking about the gay comment but correct great spread indeed.

  • Dr NYC

    And we’re not allowed to write the word penis!

  • Dr NYC

    Well, I guess I was wrong!
