Washington, who claims to have never had a black eye in his life, spilled the details the encounter:

There’s a scene where I reach over to try to choke him while I have handcuffs on. We were flying around in the car. It just happened that as I was reaching forward he was flying back … and POW.”

The Wolverine and Green Lantern star admitted that when the injury to his veteran co-star’s eye happened, he blushed and then felt remorseful, according to People:

I’m glad I was your first,” Reynolds joked to Washington. “If it had to be anyone, it was an apologetic Canadian.”

Even though the shiner was a freak accident, Reynolds didn’t shy away from a little good hearted bragging:

That was my early retirement. I’ve given Denzel Washington a black eye and I should probably go home.”

In the film Reynolds plays a newby C.I.A. agent who is tasked to keep careful tabs on Washington, who plays a famed fugitive in a safe house.  When the safe house is attacked, the agent finds himself on the run with his charge.

The thriller opens in theaters on Friday, February 10 nationwide.
