“It posed kind of a problem for me,” the 43-year-old actor says in the video. “Not only because there is a drought here in California, but because I co-founded Water.org and we envision a day when everyone has access to a clean drink of water and there are about 800 million people in the world he don’t. So dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”
Matt then explained that toilet water where he lives is cleaner than the drinking water many people in the world have access to, so he filled his bucket with water from toilets around his house.
