Based on an interview in Details magazine, this report of Channing Tatum’s penis being burned on the movie set of The Eagle of the Ninth while filming the Rosemary Sutcliff novel of that name is indeed for real! Maybe it lowers the tone here, but what was good enough for The Huffington Post is good enough for me! And furthermore now (April 1st, not an April fool) this unfortunate injury to his ‘manhood’ is mended, we are told. In the words of many a celebrity website, Channing says everything is back to normal and in working order.
“My penis is doing well. I burned it very badly but thankfully there was no scarring and is working well. I’m back on top — literally!”
