He goes on to explain candid details of the procedure, sharing that it's easy and he's a big fan of propofol, the drug used to sedate patients before the procedure.

"The propofol was worth all of it," the actor joked. "It was beautiful. You just fall asleep and it's done."

The star captioned the video: "Done! Hey people 45 and over. Go get your colonoscopy! It's easy and preventative and the propofol is amazing! It's a beautiful nap and you wake up feeling incredible! I asked for another one and they denied me. Love you all and check your a**!!!"
