Channing Tatum just turned 42 and Salma Hayek wanted to celebrate the event with a salsa dance. On Tuesday, the actress shared a video on her Instagram with her Last Dance costar.
The two danced inside what looks like a set trailer that was decorated in birthday balloons. “Happy Birthday Channing!!!! You’re such a Joy to be around. Feliz cumpleaños,” Hayek wrote in the caption.
Hayek wore a short-sleeve orange floral dress in the video, which she paired with a bright orange cropped sweater. Tatum kept his look casual with a blue sweatshirt and a pair of black sweatpants.
The pair swayed to the music before Tatum twirled Hayek in for a hug at the end of the video. “Happy birthday,” she can be heard telling the actor.
The Mexican-American actor recently replaced Thandiwe Newton in Tatum’s Magic Mike’s Last Dance, a second sequel to the hit stripper comedy-drama Magic Mike. Thandiwe Newton has made the difficult decision to step away from the production of Warner Bros Pictures’ Magic Mike’s Last Dance to deal with family matters,” a Warner Bros spokesperson said at the time.
Earlier this week, Newton praised Hayek for her role in 2017’s Beatriz at Dinner. “For me, no finer performance, no finer film, about the real questions we need to be asking,” Newton said on her Instagram Story. She tagged Hayek saying, “I love you.”
Production of the final movie in the trilogy is already underway, and Hayek already began filming in Newton’s former role in London.
In February, Tatum revealed on an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show that he almost turned down the opportunity to star in the final film in the Magic Mike franchise because he was unsure if he wanted to commit to the strict workout and diet regiment in order to have his body in shape for the movie.
“That might be the reason why I didn’t want to do a third one. Because I have to look like that,” Tatum told host Kelly Clarkson while looking at a shirtless photo of him from Magic Mike XXL, which premiered in 2015.
“It’s hard to look like that. Even if you do work out, to be that kind of in shape is not natural,” he added. “That’s not even healthy. You have to starve yourself. I don’t think when you’re that lean, it’s actually healthy.”
