It’s a common misconception that being really, really, ridiculously good looking makes you impervious to trying situations, but heartthrobs Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling just confirmed this is a total fallacy.

The actors recently spoke with People Magazine about their upcoming film The Nice Guys, in which they play a struggling private eye (Gosling) and a law enforcer (Crowe) who work together to solve the mystery of a missing girl and porn star’s death. The movie is a comedy thriller, so naturally their characters find themselves in some dangerous situations.

And what sort of danger have the actors encountered in real life? Snakes!

Ryan Gosling too had a too-close-for-comfort encounter with a snake as a child.

“The best part of the story though, is he bought it… ” Crowe added jokingly.

“And rode Space Mountain ten times in a row,” Gosling lobbed back.

“And then, he swam to Cuba,” Crowe summarized.

Well, we’re not sure what to believe with these jokesters, but thankfully the snakes haven’t gotten them yet. To see more from Crowe and Gosling, check out The Nice Guys in theaters May 20. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
