Ryan Reynolds falls and is nearly crushed by fans after barricade comes down in Brazil

The star was promoting his new film 'Free Guy' when things took a scary turn.

Fan frenzy is a symptom of being a celebrity, but things got a little too frenzied in Brazil this weekend for Ryan Reynolds. The 43-year-old actor was making his scheduled appearance onstage at CCXP 2019 on Saturday, December 7, to promote his latest film Free Guy when madness occured. As Ryan kindly hopped off stage to greet his excited fans behind a barricade the structure suddenly collapsed!

As the Deadpool leading man popped down to say hello, the crowd's energy heightened, causing their barricade to fall down and almost crush the dad-of-three. Luckily, he leapt away just in the knick of time, swiftly falling up onto the stage. Security quickly swarmed the A-lister, who didn’t skip a beat. He dusted himself off and immediately went down to check on his fans, because that’s the kind of guy he is!

This isn’t the only “run-in” with security Ryan has had this week. He joked about being chased by EXO’s team while attending the world premiere of Netflix's 6 Underground at Dongdaemun Design Plaza on December 2 in Seoul, South Korea.

“I’m in the band,” he wrote along with a photo of him and the boy band. “No, for serious. The security guard who tasered me was part of a carefully choreographed sequence me and the guys have been working on from our basement studio in my imagination.”
