John Malkovich saves an old man's life, and Kate Winslet pulls Richard Branson's mom out of a fire. (1:51)

ONLY HOPE.

BUT AT LEAST, FOLKS, THERE

ARE SOME CELEBRITIES WE CAN

STILL LOOK UP TO THANKS TO

STORIES LIKE THIS.

>> JOHN MALKOVICH USUALLY

NOT CAST AS A HERO BUT IS

BEING CREDITED WITH HELPING

SAFE A MAN, REAL LIFE.

THE ACKER HELPED A

77-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO TRIPPED

ON THE SIDEWALK AND THEN

SLASHED HIS THROAT ON SOME

SCAFFOLDING.

WIDNESSES SAY THAT MALKOVICH

RAN OVER, APPLIED PRESSURE

TO THE MAN'S NECK AND WAITED

FOR AN AMBULANCE.

>> Stephen: TRULY HEROIC.

AND IT IS MALKOVICH SO

PROBABLY A LITTLE CREEPY.

AND HE IS NOT HOLLYWOOD'S

ONLY HERO.

>> THERE WAS NO SPECIAL

EFFECTS.

IT WAS THE REAL THING WHEN

ACTOR RYAN GOSLING CLUTCHED

A WOMAN FROM THE PATH OF A

SPEEDING TAXIST WHEN A

17-YEAR-OLD FLIPPED HIS

MUSTANG T WAS PATRICK

DEMPSEY TO THE RESCUE PRYING

THE BOY OUT.

>> DOES TIN HOFFMAN THE

LATEST HOLLYWOOD ACTOR TO

TURN HERO.

REPORTING HOFFMAN SAVED A

JOGGER'S LIFE IN LONDON'S

HYDE PARK.

>> SHE WAS THE ONE IN

DISTRESS, BUT WHEN

BILLIONAIRE RICHARD

BRANSON'S CARIBBEAN ESTATE

WENT UP IN FLAMES LAST

SUMMER T WAS WINSLET TO THE

RESCUE, VISITING SHE SWOOPED

UP HIS 90-YEAR-OLD MOTHER

AND CARRIED HER TO SAFETY.

>> I'M SO GLAD BRANSON'S MOM

GOT OUT.

HE WOULD HAVE CARRIED HER

HIMSELF BUT HIS BACK WAS

OCCUPIED.

(LAUGHTER)

NOW FOLKS WITH ALL THESE

SUPER STAR SAVIOURS I'M

STARTING TO THINK THAT

PEOPLE ARE PUTTING

THEMSELVES IN DANGER JUST TO

MEET CELEBRITIES.

AND I WANT IN.

NOW ENDANGERING MY OWN LIFE

SEEMS LIKE THE EASIEST WAY

TO DO IT.

THAT IS JUST-- THE SIMPLEST

SOLUTION IS USUALLY TO SLICE

YOUR VEIN OPEN WITH A RAZOR

AND HOPE TO GET CARRIED TO

THE HOSPITAL BY HUGH

JACKMAN.

I LOVE YOU WOLVERINE.

(APPLAUSE)
