Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams are out promoting The Vow, a movie about a woman who loses her memory and doesn’t remember her husband so he shows her his dong and they live happily ever after. At least I think that’s what it’s about. Whatever the case, Tatum made a prosthetic penis and surprised Rachel with it during a scene.
“I did have a stunt pee pee that I had made for her for her reaction,” says Channing of the scene in which Rachel is surprised by her naked co-star walking into their bedroom. “It was a little prank that I pulled on her. It’s in the movie – her reaction was spot on. I didn’t have a lot of faith in her reaction because it was cold that day, and I didn’t want her to be laughing and pointing. I wanted her to be shocked.”
“A prosthetic, yes, that’s all true,” says Rachel with a laugh, recounting how Channing went to the prop department ahead of time to fabricate “a piece to terrify Rachel with.” She adds, “But it was great because I didn’t have to pretend … it was funny and got a genuine reaction out of me.”
Channing adds, “I’m not shy about being naked, obviously, as you can see in most of my movies.” ET
Rachel added to Stella Magazine, “Literally a fake penis. I didn’t know what to do – I thought, ‘Is that the real deal?’ It was very realistic. It was ridiculous, the scale of it!”
Why, if the prop department had a nickel for every time an actor came in asking for a 13-inch flaccid dong for a “scene”, they’d have $0.05 from Channing Tatum but about $1.05 from Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
