Ryan Gosling has saved a woman from being hit by a taxi in New York City.
British writer-and-journalist Laurie Penny was enjoying an evening in Manhattan when she started to walk into oncoming traffic forgetting that cars drive on the right side of the road in the US.
But quick-thinking Gosling, 31, pulled her back before she was run over by a Yellow Cab.
The Hollywood heartthrob's identity was confirmed by an onlooker.
However, Gosling's representative is yet to confirm the 31-year-old actor's act.
Incredibly, this is not the “Drive” and “Notebook” star's first feat of heroism on the streets of New York.
In August 2011, Gosling was caught on video intervening in a brawl between a street vendor and an enraged customer.
