Ryan Reynolds has spoken out about the terrifying moment a stage barrier collapsed almost crushing him at Comic-Con in Brazil last weekend.
Footage showed the Deadpool actor jumping off the stage at the event in Sao Paolo on Saturday to get closer to fans in the audience while promoting his new movie Free Guy.
But moments later, the barrier separating him from the large crowd suddenly gave way, throwing some fans to the floor and prompting Ryan to jump backwards.
Recalling what happened, Ryan told Entertainment Tonight on Monday: ‘Well, ordinance collapsed and that was a little, I think it looked worse than it was.
‘All I was worried about were the people that were – what you could tell is that they were falling, like, “Oh, they’re gonna be fine”, and it’s like, “Oh, but that leg is gonna go”, so I jumped out. But it was, yeah, everyone was fine.’
Sounds like a very close call.
Ryan’s wife Blake Lively might be telling him ‘I told you so’ as he reveals she gave him one piece of advice – or more, a warning – before he flew out to the event.
‘My only job that Blake said as I was leaving was, “Just come home in one piece”,’ he said.
‘So that was my only job.’
Lucky you did, Ry.
There’s a huge buzz at the moment about Ryan’s new movie Free Guy, which sees him star as Guy, a NPC (non-player character), who is desperate for a break in his monotonous life. He then sort of gets what he wishes for after discovering that he’s actually caught up inside a brutal video game.
It also stars Killing Eve actress Jodie Comer, Stranger Things actor Joe Keery and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, while Taika Watiti appears to be playing the villain.
After the trailer dropped, Free Guy earned comparisons to video game Grand Theft Auto Online due to the running animations, constant destruction and violence.
Free Guy is set to hit UK cinemas on 1 July 2020.
