"We were doing some pretty crazy stunts up in Newhall on this crazy, windy mountain road. It was pretty exciting. I was actually in the passenger seat, and nobody was behind the wheel," the star of The Young and the Restless said.

They have this amazing rig, a stunt driver locked down to the top of the car on the roof. He's a very talented because at no point did I feel that my life was in danger."
