In an interview with “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Reeves said he and Carrie-Anne Moss jumped off a 40-story building to watch a scene from the new movie “The Matrix Resurrections.”
The pair will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity and host Stephen Colbert asked him why they decided to jump in instead of just doing the scene digitally.
“Because it is [la directora] It’s “The Matrix,” Reeves said, Lana Wachowski, and she needs natural light and she wants to make it real. “I mean, there are wires.
Reeves said he and Moss would hold hands and jump out of the building about 19 or 20 times.
“After the first time,” he said, “you can’t think of…fear.” “You don’t have to stop it, but you have to deal with it, internalize it, be there and do it. And that’s what we did.”
Reeves already spoke as Neo.
The actor declared the experience “awesome” and revealed that he had never even done bungee jumping before.
“It scares me,” he said.
