Chris Pratt teased Jurassic World co-star Sam Neill for putting him in a suffocating spot, causing him to “pee his pants”.
He, the Guardians of the Galaxy star shared details of the incident on Instagram along with a selfie of the couple from the press call for their upcoming movie Jurassic World: Dominion.
Pratt and Neill will reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Alan Grant in the dinosaur action movie, alongside an all-star cast that includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum.
Pratt writes: “Sam Neill is an icon. However, that doesn’t excuse the sleeper hold he placed on me after this photo.
“It was the Sam attack. I know being in New Zealand or Australia or wherever you come from is a sign of respect but here it’s just offensive.
“I peed Sam’s pants. I want you to think about that. @samneilltheprop #jurassicworlddominion #jurassicworld ”
Neill replied in the comments: “I know Chris is sorry. Just absolute excellence, all those moves you taught me. ”
He also shared pictures on Twitter of his own, saying he put Pratt to a “sleep”, but then added: “Just kidding when you have dinosaur PTSD, all you need must say BOO, and they jump out of their skin.”
Neill starred in the original 1993 film Jurassic Park, returned in 2001’s Jurassic Park III, and is currently starring in the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion.

The upcoming blockbuster is the third installment of the Jurassic World franchise and the sixth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise.
The film is set four years after the destruction of the Jurassic World amusement park in Isla Nublar, when genetically modified dinosaurs are auctioned by companies and released into the human world.
A recently released trailer shows dinosaurs ravaging cities as Dern’s character Dr Ellie Sattler warns: “Humans and dinosaurs cannot coexist. We have created an ecological disaster.”
The new footage also shows the dinosaur attacking the plane, while another chases Pratt’s character as he rides his motorbike.
Jurassic World: Dominion will be released in UK cinemas on June 10.
