1. Kate Winslet is Good to Have Around in a Fire
While Kate Winslet was vacationing at Sir Richard Branson’s Caribbean estate on Necker Island, lightning struck and the winds from passing Hurricane Irene engulfed the home in flames. As Winslet and her two children were fleeing the house, she noticed that Branson’s 90-year-old mother was still inside. The actress swiftly picked the old woman up in her arms and carried her down the stairs to safety.
2. Harrison Ford is Like a Real Life Indiana Jones
The Star Wars actor has assisted in a couple of life saving missions. In 2000, he saved the lives of two hikers who had been lost in the forest. One had fallen sick from dehydration while attempting to climb Table Mountain. Ford heard the radio call and used his Bell 407 helicopter to rescue the young hikers. The following year, the veteran actor helped locate a 13 year-old Boy Scout who was lost in Yellowstone National Park. What a hero!
