She's been one of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster stars for decades, but there are still some things that throw even Sandra Bullock off her game while on set.

And apparently, one of those things is Channing Tatum's penis.

Bullock is set to star alongside Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming adventure movie The Lost City, and revealed that, true to form, the Magic Mike actor spends a fair amount of his time in the film 'stupid naked.'



And that means the Birdbox star had to spend a lot of her time in the film 'face to face' with Tatum's genitals.

But rather than using camera trickery or other well known Hollywood techniques to protect Tatum's dignity, Bullock revealed that her co-star fully committed to shooting his scenes fully au naturale.

The topic came up during Bullock's recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which saw the actor share a clip from The Lost City, in which her character has to check Tatum's body for leeches.


'Was that CGI?' Colbert asked of the extremely up close and personal interaction, leading Bullock to explain how she kept her cool while shooting the scenes alongside Tatum's penis.

'No. [I’m] fully there. Full on face to face, with the, uh... landscape,' she said. 'I had to spend some time down there, just making sure no leeches, and I had a lot to say to it. When you’re down there, you may as well just get to know it.'

She continued: 'When you’re down there and you have two pages of dialogue, if you are looking directly at it, you will get nothing done. So I looked at his left thigh. I focused more on the left inner thigh.'


Whatever the tactic, Bullock managed to get through the scenes and has since revealed that her time shooting The Lost City could be her last on set for a bit of time.

The mother of two recently shared that she was getting ready to take a break from acting in order to spend more time with her children, who are aged 12 and 10, telling Entertainment Tonight: 'I take my job very seriously when I’m at work... and I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family.'
