    If the fight sequences in "Killers" seemed pretty realistic, it might be because producer and star Ashton Kutcher was causing some real-life mayhem on set.

    Kutcher's accidental real kick to onscreen foe Rob Riggle's face was just one of the injuries reported.

    "He didn't hit the moneymakers," Riggle told PopcornBiz, flashing a full smile that would make any hockey player envious.

    "But he chipped a back tooth," Riggle told us. "There wasn't blood. He just flattened it out a bit."

    During the "Killer's" press conference, Kutcher explained that pre-movie he learned all kinds of fight training -- perhaps a little too well.

    "I should have learned how to movie fight," he added. "In the first scene I did, I knocked out the stunt guy -- that was a bad ordeal."

    They were doing a fight scene onboard a yacht. The stunt guy gave a movie punch to Kutcher, who blocked it and delivered a too-real blow right back.

    "I knocked him out," he said. "I felt real bad about that."

    "And I kicked Rob in the face," said Kutcher glumly. "I hurt a lot of people."

    Riggle, a former Marine, said that he had a few injuries after his "Killers" ordeal , "I think I suffered more in the fight scene than I ever suffered in Afghanistan. I chipped a tooth, sprained an ankle and twisted my thumbs back."

    "Ashton's a scrappy young man."

    Kutcher said he learned his lesson. "I should just have the stunt guy do everything to be honest," he said. "And I'll just make the jokes."
