And now you and horses have something in common, besides the whole “raising your leg whenever somebody comes behind you” thing. Mia Wasikowska, who stars as Jane Eyre in Jane Eyre, tells Movie Line about how her co-star Michael Fassbender caused dozens of horses to replace the Trace Cyrus poster in their stalls with the picture above. Their neeeeeigh is now calling Michael’s name.
Mia says that Michael’s crotch has the stuff that makes horses drop their fifth leg and dream of turning his cheeks into a feedbag, and she learned about this during rehearsals. The Reverse Equus presented by Mia Wasikowska:
“Michael had a very… huge effect on any horse he got on. There was a horse on the third day of filming [when] we were shooting the scene where Jane and Rochester meet, and every time Michael hopped on the horse it got a huge erection. And he’d get off and they’d run the poor thing around the block to try to make it go away, and he’d hop on it again and it would happen all over again, and they’d have to get him off and run it around.
It happened in rehearsals and then on the day of shooting. So it was great.”
It’s easy to laugh at this, but it could’ve ended with Michael getting an anal graft on a surgeon’s table. Michael’s horse could’ve had a “moment” mid-gallop and BOOM! Horse dick hitting the ground like an anchor! Michael would’ve flown over his horse’s head and landed ass up on the dirt. Michael’s ass in the air + a ready-to-party horse – lube = not a good scene.
