There are a lot of stars who played heroic roles on-screen, but there are some who have proved to be a hero in real life too and saved people's lives. Stepping out of their on-screen heroism, these celebrities literally saved lives off-screen out of the goodness of their hearts.
Recently, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe rushed to help a tourist who is in his 50s after he was slashed in the face by robbers after they snatched away his Louis Vuitton bag. The man came to UK for a short holiday when the thieves took away his expensive designer bag from him.
Former police officer David Videcette who was also present at the scene told The Evening Standard that Radcliffe was "comforting the tourist."
"It was a bit of the surreal moment, I said 'you're Daniel Radcliffe' and he replied, 'I am,'...He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn't have stopped to help," Videcette said.
Here are 7 other celebs who have stepped in to help people in trouble:
