Ryan Reynolds almost broke his promise to his wife, Blake Lively.

"My only job that Blake said as I was leaving was just come home in one piece," Reynolds previously told ET's Rachel Smith while doing press for 6 Underground and Free Guy in Brazil. "So that was my only job."

However, while promoting Free Guy over the weekend, the 43-year-old actor found himself in slight danger when a barrier gave way, nearly crushing him. In videos posted to Twitter by those who were at the event, Reynolds jumps back as the barrier (that was separating him from hundreds of screaming fans) fell over.

"I did [almost break my promise to Blake]. I almost messed that up," Reynolds once again told Smith at the New York City premiere of 6 Underground on Tuesday. "But you know what? I was mostly worried about those people and they were OK. They went down. For them, it looked rather pleasant, but I got the hell out of there just in time. But everyone was OK and that's all that matters."

The 43-year-old actor and Lively are parents to daughters James, 4, Inez, 3, and a 4-month-old baby girl.

When asked what he was the best at, he first joked about his skills on the Heelys shoes, before adding that he was good at "dodging" things falling on him. 

"I'm pretty good on Heelys, it’s the shoes with the horrible wheels on the back," Reynolds shared. "The most unattractive thing an adult man can do, but I'm not bad at it."

The actor had previously opened up about staying safe while filming some stressful scenes in his new Michael Bay action movie.

"Anytime you do a car chase in Florence, [Italy], at those speeds where these tiny streets where you have an inch on either side and you're going a 100 miles an hour in this Alfa Romeo -- that's lime green Alfa Romeo -- you know, your heart's in your throat for a lot of stuff," he says. 

Reynolds was able to unwind from the stressful days with some of his signature Aviation Gin. That doesn't mean that Lively let him incorporate it into their Thanksgiving dinner, despite him calling it the "new gravy." 

"No, I do think that's one place you don’t want to put your Aviation Gin is on the turkey, no," he admitted, before adding, "It's amazing with cereal, so I've been told." 

6 Underground will be in select theaters in the U.S. on Wednesday, Dec. 11 and released on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 13.
