Ryan Gosling Saves Pedestrian Crossing Street, See Other Celebrity Heroes (PHOTOS)
When Ryan Gosling is in New York, the streets are a little safer. In what would be his second heroic act in the Big Apple (he was caught on video last year breaking up a fight), the Drive actor, 31, saved a pedestrian from walking into oncoming traffic.
Laurie Penny lives in London, but while visiting NYC tweeted her story. She wrote, excitedly: "I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened."
She explained, "I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi."
A journalist across the pond, Laurie added:
"Identity of no-idea-if-actually-a-manarchist-but-definitely-a-decent-sort Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said 'you lucky bitch.'"Though she admits there's a possiblity it wasn't the actor she did tweet, jokingly, "He did not say 'hey, girl.' He said 'hey, watch out!' ... I would also like to thank the several other, more anonymous New Yorkers who have saved me from cars since my stay here. #trafficfail"
It seems Laurie wasn't prepared for the Gosling craze as she later wrote: "EVERYBODY NEEDS TO CALM DOWN ABOUT RYAN GOSLING NOW."
Sort of back tracking, Laurie said of the attention regarding this story, "No seriously. My phone and email have been going crazy with media requests all night and all morning and it's getting silly now."
Celebuzz has reached out to the journalist and RyGos, but have yet to hear back.
