Washington: American actress Eva Mendes has revealed that she almost killed Will Ferrell while shooting an improvised argument scene in their upcoming comedy, `The Other Guys`.
Mendes and Ferrell play an unlikely married couple in their new comic flick.
"Once we got the scene down, we were told to improve," People magazine quoted Mendes at the movie`s Manhattan premiere.
"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.
"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," she added, admitting that she had realized her mistake.
Mendes plays the hot wife of Ferrell`s dopey character in the film, which also stars Mark Wahlberg.
