Filming his new post-apocalyptic film After Earth in Costa Rica last year found Jaden Smith battling both CGI beasties and scaly creatures that were all too real, including crocodiles, snakes, and piranhas. “There were a few moments where questionable parenting tactics were used [during filming],” Jaden’s father (and costar) Will jokingly told EW’s Jess Cagle during a SiriusXM Town Hall filmed in New York City yesterday. “The crocodile — that was the day I was glad your mom wasn’t there.”

Check out a clip from the interview below — and catch the whole thing on EW’s brand-new SiriusXM station, channel 105, today at 3 and 7 p.m. ET.
