“When it was over, I was like, ‘I think I wet my pants. I think I peed myself.'”
Being in The Matrix does wild things to your mind — just ask Jonathan Groff.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly alongside the rest of the cast, the actor — who plays Agent Smith in the movie — recalled filming an action scene and coming to the realization that he might’ve just, um, had an accident.
“When it was over, I was like, ‘I think I wet my pants. I think I peed myself,'” he admitted.
“You know when you pee yourself you feel that, like, hot urine? … But then, it didn’t go away,” he continued. “When you pee yourself, it’s hot for a second and then it gets cold, and so [the sensation] sustained.”
“Then I thought one of the shells from the gun had come down my shirt, which they warn you might happen. I was reaching down there looking for this shell but it wasn’t down there.”
Groff went on to say that co-star Carrie-Anne Moss had an interesting and very Matrix-y explanation for what took place: “You were saying sometimes your body doesn’t know it’s not real.”
“When I shoot a gun, I can look really cool in a scene, but afterward it’s like my body doesn’t know it’s not real, and it’s really intense,” Moss then explains. “Unless you’re really experienced [and] you’ve gone beyond that point. My body has a physical reaction to it.”
“But you didn’t pee your pants, to be clear,” she specified.
