Hayek Pinault was recently a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” where she talked about “Magic Mike’s Last Dance.” In the film, Hayek Pinault receives an intense lap dance from Channing Tatum. It’s a long, seductive number that required Hayek Pinault to assume many difficult positions. She tells Kimmel that the dance was extremely “challenging” and “technical.”
During a moment where she was meant to be flipped upside down, things got a bit dangerous. “My legs had to be somewhere, but upside down, one loses sense of direction,” she explained. “I didn’t do what I was supposed to do, so in the rehearsal, I went head-down [and] almost hit my head.” Thankfully, Tatum was able to hold onto Hayek Pinault and keep her from hitting the floor, but what would seem like an easy situation to get out of by just putting your arms down became complicated when Hayek Pinault realized something. “I was really concerned,” she told Kimmel. “I couldn’t remember if I had underwear [on] or not.”
As her pants started to slip, and not wanting to make an awkward moment even more awkward, she chose to hold onto her pants instead of bracing herself with her arms. “Instead of putting my hands [down] to protect my head, I just held on to the pants,” she laughed. A confused Tatum kept shouting at her to put her hands on the ground until eventually, others on set helped. Once she was standing again, Hayek Pinault says Tatum asked her, “What’s wrong with you?!” to which she replied, “What’s wrong with me? You nearly killed me!”, making this the first lap dance in history in which someone actually wanted their pants to stay on.
