Ryan Gosling is in headlines for saving a British journalist’s life. This heroic act has gotten him plenty of coverage on almost all major media websites. Gosling was crossing the 6th Avenue in New York on Tuesday and quite coincidentally so was the British journalist, Laurie Penny.
According to a news report by Huffington post, Laurie Penny revealed the details via Twitter. Laurie Penny is a reporter for The New Statesman, The Independent, The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, and The Nation. She tweeted the details of her encounter with Ryan Gosling whilst she was crossing the 6th Avenue in New York. Penny was looking in the opposite direction and not paying attention on the heavy traffic essentially because Britishers drive on the left side of the road. It wasn’t even in her remotest imaginations that Ryan Gosling, a God sent angel, would shout "Hey Girl. Hey, watch out!" He even grabbed her before a taxi could run her over.
A woman besides Penny said to her, “You lucky bitch.” She was extremely shocked at what had happened and was also grateful to Ryan for literally saving her life.
Apparently, this wasn’t the first time Ryan Gosling put on his super hero hat. His heroic attempt to stop a fight between two men on St. Mark's Place while he was in a tank top previously made him pretty famous. You may check out the video of this latest incident by visiting this link.
Reporters of Huffington Post are trying to get in touch with Laurie Penny to get more scoops on what exactly happened. However, there is sufficient entertainment available online courtesy Penny’s Twitter account.

In addition to the social networks, Penny has also written about the incident and her life saver on Gawker, so people can get a real insight on what actually happened instead of promoting all sorts of misinterpreted information.
Penny is trying to negate the damsel in distress label, which was associated with her soon after the accident. She said, "As a feminist, a writer, and a gentlewoman of fortune, she refuses to be cast in any sort of boring supporting female role."
Laurie Penny also wrote, "People do lovely, considerate things for other people all the time. I don't believe that the fact that A-list celebrities occasionally act like human beings is in itself news..."
Laurie Penny also admitted that she was about to pass out (in a good sense) when she saw, of all the people, celebrity Ryan Gosling jumping in to rescue her.
