- Hercules was in training for months to perform the swimming scenes
- He was specifically chosen because of his love of water/swimming
- He'd been taught to jump in from the left side of the pool, grab a toy attached to the stunt actor in the pool, and pull her to safety
- On the day of the TMZ footage, they attempted to shoot the same scene but have Hercules jump in from a different starting point
- As soon as it became apparent he wasn't comfortable doing it, they stopped immediately (right after the footage cut off) and brought him back to the side of the pool he'd been taught to enter from, and he did the stunt no problem
