Ryan Reynolds had several mishaps on the set of his new film "Safe House," both of which nearly ruined Denzel Washington's experience.

"Ryan gave me a black eye," Washington said during a recent press conference, according to United Press International. "There's a scene where I reach over [a car seat] to try to choke him and I have handcuffs on. We were flying around in the car. He wasn't actually driving the car, it was being controlled by somebody else. So, it just happened as I was reaching forward, he was flying back and pow!"
