Actress Eva Mendes Almost killed co-star Will Ferrell on the set of their new movie after picking up a real knife instead of a prop and using it in a fight sequence.
The two star in upcoming comedy The Other Guys, which sees Mendes lunge at Ferrell with a blade during a heated argument in one scene, People magazine online reported.
The actress admits they improvised much of the scene and when she picked up a carving knife, she didn’t realise the object was real. “We got into a little tug of war and I picked up what was supposed to be a prop knife.
It was actually a carving knife from our meal,” the actress said.
