Celebs Who've Saved Lives

Ryan Gosling 1 of 11

'Drive,' 'The Ides of March,' and 'The Notebook' leading man Ryan Gosling has made headlines a few times in the past year for stepping up to save the day.

British writer Laurie Penny publicly relayed a story of how Gosling saved her life by jumping into action to pull her out of the way of a car in downtown Manhattan. That Supermanesque incident came only months after Gosling intervened in a street fight in New York's East Village. The fight mediation, caught on camera, found the dreamy actor breaking up the scuffle between two men arguing over a $10 painting.
