Showing some love to their Spanish fans, Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds were spotted at a photocall for their new film “Safe House” in Madrid on Tuesday (January 31).

The “American Gangster” stud and the “Van Wilder” hunk joined Swedish director Daniel Espinosa for some press duties at the Villamagna Hotel.

And it sounds like there was plenty of action on the film’s set, both scripted and freestyle- Denzel told press that Ryan gave him his first black eye!

"I've never had a black eye in my life! 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," explained Washington.

Ryan added, "That was my early retirement. I've given Denzel Washington a black eye and I should probably go home. I'm glad I was your first. If it had to be anyone, it was an apologetic Canadian."
