Channing Tatum - Channing Tatum Appreciates His Manhood

Channing Tatum "appreciates" his penis "a lot more" since it healed from scalding.

The 30-year-old actor suffered an agonising injury to his manhood when a set assistant poured boiling water down his wet suit during filming of historical drama 'The Eagle', and Channing says it made him learn just how precious his privates are.

Speaking at the film's premiere in London tonight (09.03.11), he told BANG Showbiz: "It's definitely all healed now, I'm back on top man. I definitely appreciate it a lot more!"

When asked if he would insure himself against such injury in future, he added: "That's a good idea actually, how would that even work?

"You lose your penis and you get paid? Or you're reimbursed for it?"

The film's director, Kevin Macdonald, told how he thinks the injury made his young star act better during his final scenes as roman officer Marcus Aquila.

He said: "In some ways it worked to my advantage because what I was trying to do in that section was break him down.

"But Channing's such a bulk and so strong and capable that it's very hard to make him feel like he's reached the end.

"When he was fighting in the final battle he was in pain and couldn't do it very well."

Also attending the premiere were Gillian Anderson, Stephen Fry and Channing's co-star Jamie Bell.

'The Eagle' is in UK cinemas from March 25.
