Salma Hayek hears Thandiwe’s love for Salma after Thandiwe Newton replaces her in Magic Mike.


Thandiwe Newton has recently resigned from Magic Mike 3 (starring Channing Tatum) after more than a week of filming. Salma Hayek replaced her in the role.

After Salma Hayek replaced her in Magic Mike 3, Thandiwe Newton supported Salma Hayek’s film.

The Channing Tatum actress, 49, quit the third installment earlier this month, after only two weeks of filming. Reports that she had split with Ol Parker emerged last week.

Thandiwe shared her 2017 film Beatriz at dinner and spoke of Salma’s appreciation.

Thandiwe posted a photo of the film’s poster to her Instagram Stories on Monday. “For me, no finer performance, no finer film, about the real questions we need to be asking.

“I love you @salmahayek #Mexico.”

The film stars Salma, John Lithgow, Connie Britton and Jay Duplass.

It follows a Mexican holistic healer who is stranded at a self-satisfied and privileged client’s house after driving to visit her.

Salma has recently been pictured filming scenes for the new movie with Channing in London’s Clapham Junction.

She was wearing the same outfit that Thandiwe’s character was wearing before she left the movie.

Deadline confirmed the news of the return of Magic Mike in November last year.

It will be created by Warner Bros. and premiere exclusively on HBO Max.

“When I saw the magic Mike choreographic team and Channing Reid’s live performance, I was compelled to say, “We must make another movie.”

“Mike Lane’s dream of connecting people through dance must be realised,”Steven Soderbergh was the screenwriter for the publication.

Thandiwe’s fans were shocked to hear that she has ended her 24 year-long marriage to Ol Parker, screenwriter and film director.

A source told Page Six : “It became clear she couldn’t play the role.

“There are many things going on in her life. She and her husband have recently separated.

“She seemed so stressed she even brought her two pet rabbits to her hotel for emotional support.”

Warner Bros. released a statement saying that the star had made the difficult decision to leave the production in order to attend to family matters.

Thandiwe & Ol were not seen together since their 2020 Ibiza holiday.

Thandie and Ol have children Booker and Ripley.

Nico (17) made her film-first appearance as Milly Farrier in Disney’s Dumbo remake in 2019.
