In an interview published Thursday, the actor told Entertainment Tonight that filming the scene was “physically challenging.”

“Oh my God. You just have to wait and see. It’s just complicated,” he said.

Hayek stars in the third and final installment of “Magic Mike” alongside rich girlfriend Tatum, who reprises her role as stripper Mike Lane in the film franchise. Mike quits his bartending gig in Miami, Florida to travel to London, England with Hayek’s character, who “tempts him with an offer he can’t refuse,” according to the film’s description.

The trailer, released in November, begins with Hayek’s character asking Mike Lane if he likes bartending. He asked later. “What are you really doing?”

The video then shows their intense lap dance scene that takes place in the house.

“You came up and gave me this unexpected magical moment that made me remember who I really am,” Hayek’s character said in the clip.

Tatum starred in the first Magic Mike film in 2012 and its sequel, Magic Mike XXL in 2015.

He said at the time that getting in shape for previous films “didn’t come naturally”.

“You have to starve yourself,” he added later. “I don’t think when you’re that skinny it’s actually healthy.”

Director Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike’s Last Dance hits theaters on February 10.
