On the outside, Tom Hiddleston might look like the kind of guy who wears three-piece suits on Saturdays. But on the inside, he's the kind of guy who wears three-piece suits on Saturdays *and* pees on a friend in need.

According to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab), Hiddleston and his Night Manager co-star Tom Hollander were on a beach, when suddenly, the universe threw an attacking jellyfish their way, forcing them to recreate one of Friends' most beloved scenes. (Turns out Chandler Bing is yet another role Tom Hids was born to play.)

"Tom got stung by a jellyfish, and he shouted across the beach, 'I say, old sport, could you come and pee on me?'" he said, proving that people besides Gatsby do say that in real life, in the 21st century. "And I engagingly obliged."

Too bad urine doesn't actually sooth jellyfish stings, as Toms H. and H. later discovered. "I've since read up on it and I don't think it works," Hiddleston said. "It's an old wives' tale." But it's the thought that counts. Let's just hope the aftermath wasn't quite so traumatic.
