Mendes' prop mix-up 'almost killed' Ferrell
Eva Mendes "almost killed" 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 actors star in upcoming comedy "The Other Guys" and one scene sees Mendes lunge at the funnyman with a blade during a heated argument.

The actress admits they improvised much of the scene, and when she picked up a carving knife, she didn't realize the object was real.

She tells People.com, "Once we got the scene down, we were told to improv. 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. I lunged at him, and I was really proud of myself," she said, presumably meaning before she realized her mistake.

"When we cut, Will said, 'Wow, usually we have to coordinate that with the stunt department.' It could have gotten ugly in a second. I almost killed Will Ferrell!"
