“Yeah, I was going back in the back shed down in a friend’s house in Waterville and stepped on something. It was a bit dark and just as I opened it, I saw it went right through my legs and it gave me a bit of a scare. And then my friend came over and they caught it and they said,”That’s a brown snake, mate. That could have really s**ked’.”

Despite almost being bitten by the reptile, the Oscar winner said that it’s still his favourite Australian animal: “That’s my favourite animal because it didn’t bite me.”
