Salma Hayek posts a fun, sexy picture with her Magic Mike's Last Dance co-star Channing Tatum.
Salma Hayek and Channing Tatum look like they had a blast behind the scenes of Magic Mike’s Last Dance. Hayek posted a picture of the two stars goofing off in a dressing room on Instagram with the caption, “Those of us who didn’t work out daily kept their clothes on. Feliz cumpleaños.” While a scantily clad Channing Tatum looks positively shredded in the pic, Salma, wearing a curve-hugging tank top and cargo pants, was no slouch herself.
The 56-year-old Mexican actress posed with her arms flexed, showing off her impressive biceps, while her 43-year-old costar showed off his jacked physique in a pair of tighty-blackies and nothing else. Salma Hayek and nearly nude Channing Tatum appear to be thrusting their respective crotches at each other like they’re in a Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed dance-off.
Neither star looks their age, no doubt owing their ridiculously flawless appearances to the kind of strict diets and private trainers that only wealthy movie stars can afford. That and some pretty impressive genetics. Salma Hayek, after all, has always been a knockout, even before she came to Hollywood.
The star began acting in her native Mexico, starring in telenovelas like Teresa and movies like El Callejón de los Milagros before moving on to English language films with 1995’s Robert Rodriguez action classic Desperado. Salma Hayek soon pivoted to romantic comedy with the 1997 Fools Rush In opposite Friends star Matthew Perry. The movie was a moderate success proving that Hayek had a broad range as an actress.
It was 2002’s Frida about surrealist painter Frida Kahlo that catapulted Salma Hayek into superstardom. The actress both produced and starred in the biopic, which earned her a nomination for Best Actress at the Academy Awards.
Salma Hayek was heard in last year’s critically acclaimed Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. The animated movie featured the return of Hayek as Kitty Softpaws opposite Antonio Banderas’s title character. The movie surprised audiences expecting the usual Shrek-type barrage of non-stop gross-out humor and out-of-place pop culture references by being a tear-jerking heartfelt masterpiece.
The Dogma actress last appeared on screen physically opposite her ultra-ripped Instagram partner Channing Tatum in the third installment of Tatum’s Magic Mike franchise. The original Magic Mike, loosely based on Tatum’s real-life stint as an exotic dancer prior to his break in Hollywood, was a huge success, as was the follow-up Magic Mike XXL. The Salma Hayek starring Magic Mike’s Last Dance ended the unlikely franchise with a bit of a fizzle.
Last Dance features Salma Hayek as Maxandra Mendoza, a wealthy socialite who lures a down-on-his-luck Mike to London, trapping him into training a new group of young dancers. Tatum’s swansong as the Magic Mike character may not have been well received critically, but if the above picture is any indication, it was a blast to film.
Salma Hayek has one upcoming project, according to her IMDb, a movie called Without Blood. Not much is known about the film other than it’s listed as being currently in Post-production. The plot is being kept under wraps at the moment.
Until Without Blood comes out, fans can always catch Salma posting steamy pics of herself (and others) regularly on her Instagram.
