Tenet star John David Washington confessed he still doesn’t quite understand the Christopher Nolan-directed movie himself.

Considering co-star Robert Pattinson even said he doesn’t understand the film, we’re going to have a worse time wrapping our heads around it.

The secretive espionage blockbuster deals with time but is not about time travel as we know it, with the story following the Protagonist (Washington) who finds himself on a mission to help prevent a situation that would be ‘worse than a nuclear holocaust’.

The 36-year-old opened up on the plot and said despite being in it, it didn’t help him ‘grasp’ the project any better.

‘I mean, literally on the first read, I thought I understood it, strangely,’ he told GQ Hype.

‘In my delirium, I thought I totally had, and I realised as the day went on, “Ah, I don’t have it at all.”‘

He continued: ‘But to answer your question directly, I’m still kind of grasping it…’

He might not have fully understood Tenet, which he stars in alongside Robert Pattinson, but he was fully aware of his fear of heights while filming the project.

The star had to push through some of his nerves in order to do so – all while his director was none the wiser.

Speaking about a scene which features a big drop from a building, the actor – son of Denzel – admitted in a press conference: ‘When we were filming in Mumbai, I had to jump over a balcony. But my relationship with heights wasn’t great.

‘So it forced me to find some courage and for the love of the art, you jump! So yeah, I loved every other take of that.’

He continued: ‘I’m sure most actors have been there. They ask, “Can you ride a horse?” And you’re like, “Sure, I can ride a horse.” You say yes and get over it later.’

Oops, at least he got through it.

Tenet is in cinemas now.
