Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl Ryan has a new reason to be called Superman. The 31-year-old actor is already known for making girls scream his name on and off screen and now he’s become known for … saving lives?!

Ryan did what any Good Samaritan would do when he snatched British writer Laurie Penny out of harm’s way after she was almost plowed down by a NYC taxi cab. Laurie was looking the wrong way when she was saved by Ryan from being struck by the speeding vehicle.

Ryan’s real–life heroics didn’t go unnoticed, as Laurie gave Ryan the props he deserved via twitter.

“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened,” Said Laura. “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.”

Lucky girl Laura is indeed! Who wouldn’t mind Ryan coming to their rescue?!

And this isn’t the first time Ryan pulled out his Superman cape to save a life. Ryan not too long ago broke up a fight between two men on a NYC street.

Way to go Ryan, saving lives and making girls swoon, one day at a time.
