TV Guide: Is it true that you and Jared had a bonding experience when you were attacked by some rowdy Canadians?
Ackles: You mean when Jared, his buddy Jordan and I were jumped by seven or eight guys? There had been this fight at a bar and these guys got kicked out. They were pretty tanked. This one girl sees me walking by and says, “That’s the guy,” meaning she knew me from the show, but they thought I was some guy she had been fighting with. They started swinging at me and it was an all-out brawl.
TV Guide: How’d you do?
Ackles: We got away and put two of them in the hospital. I got away first, then I turned around and saw three or four guys teaming up on Jared. I was like, “Oh, man!” I ran back in and I was fly-kicking at some kid, hit another guy, grabbed Jared’s shirt — of course, I ripped his favorite shirt — and I was yelling “C'mon, let’s get out of here!” We were pretty tight after that.
He fricking fly-kicked someone to protect Jared. It’s like they’re Sam and Dean in real life, too!
