Olivia Wilde owes her life to her Cowboys & Aliens co-star Walton Goggins after he saved her from getting trampled to death in a horse stampede scene.

Wilde appears alongside Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in Jon Favreau's new sci-fi Western and she hit the red carpet for the movie's big premiere at Comic-Con in San Diego, California on Saturday.

But Wilde admits she is lucky to be alive – and it's only thanks to Goggins' quick-thinking that she escaped one harrowing shoot unharmed.

Speaking at the big screening, she tells E! News, "We were riding 40 horses deep, galloping into battle and if you watch really closely in the movie you may be able to catch it, but I got bucked off and I fell under my horse and I was about to get trampled by about 40 horses, but Walton Goggins turned his horse sideways and saved my life, so I'm very lucky to be here tonight."

Cowboys & Aliens opens July 29.
