Washington: Ryan Reynolds who has done most of his own stunts on his new film ‘Safe House’ and is proud of it, has revealed that the physical scenes left him “a wreck”.

The ‘Green Lantern’ star, who plays CIA agent Matt Weston in the forthcoming action thriller, was very involved in his character’s stunts despite movie bosses having hired a body double.

“I was fighting this guy for five hours and we’re finishing it later,” Contactmusic quoted the Canadian actor as telling Empire magazine.

“The fights in this movie are really long and extensive and they’re ugly and there’s biting and head-butting. Canadian Kung fu, we call it.

“I keep seeing a stunt guy dressed like me but they don’t seem to want to put him in.

“I’m a wreck, but then I get to say, ‘That’s me getting my ass kicked by a 300lb mercenary,’” he added.
