‘You’re such a joy to be around!’ Salma Hayek enjoys a dance with Magic Mike 3 co-star Channing Tatum on his 42nd birthday… after replacing Thandiwe Newton in the film amid ‘bust-up’
Salma Hayek paid a gushing tribute to her Magic Mike 3 co-star Channing Tatum as she celebrated his 42nd birthday.
The actress took to Instagram to share a video of the two dancing in a trailer as they marked his big day.
It comes after Salma replaced Thandiwe Newton in the film following an alleged bust-up with the show’s star Channing.

Salma penned: ‘Happy Birthday Channing!!!! You’re such a Joy to be around. Feliz cumpleaños @channingtatum’
The duo looked in high spirits as they danced around together in a trailer which was decorated for the special occasion.
Salma has been pictured on set for Magic Mike 3 in London, shooting her first scenes opposite Channing Tatum after taking over the role from Thandiwe Newton.
Thandiwe exited the film earlier this month after just 11 days of shooting, following an alleged bust-up with the movie’s producer and star Channing over Will Smith ‘s Oscars slap – she has denied the incident.

While Salma, 55, shot her scenes in London’s Clapham, Thandiwe, 49, was pictured 5,000 miles away in Malibu over the weekend, seemingly confirming the end of their 23-year marriage with a very public display of affection with musician Lonr, 25.
Salma was pictured in the same costume which Thandiwe was previously pictured wearing on set last month, as she shared a conversation with Channing in between takes for the film, which is reportedly focusing on the female lead and not Channing’s character Mike.
